Is Meghan Markle Finally Crumbling Under the Pressures of Royal Life? Here’s the Real Score On the Matter

Ever since her engagement to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, has faced criticism after criticism from the media. Her face and name often feature prominently on the pages of British tabloids and it’s usually not because of positive reasons.

Amidst the continuous media scrutiny and her new role as a mother, has the Duchess finally cracked up under the pressure?

Not a Cakewalk

Markle has been busy fulfilling her duties appearing at official engagements with and without Prince Harry.

Speaking about the hate she’s gotten for being wife to Prince Harry for the first time, Markle was quoted saying that ‘they don’t make it easy’ during a brief conversation with the American musician Pharell Williams at the recent London premiere of ‘The Lion King’.

While the Duchess didn’t seem to elaborate on how she truly feels, a source told People that she hasn’t broken yet. However, that doesn’t change the fact that Markle doesn’t find royal life to be a ‘cakewalk’. According to the same source, who’s close to the royal household, the 37-year-old former actress is struggling with the intensity of the spotlight she’s in. The source also mentioned how Markle’s sister-in-law Kate Middleton understands this struggle and that the women have bonded because of it.

The Duchess of Sussex officially joined the royal family in May of last year when she married Prince Harry. They’ve recently welcomed their first child, a boy, Archie two months ago.

Sisterly Help

According to a previous report from Elle magazine, Middleton has actually been dedicated to lending a helping hand towards Markle during the latter’s transition into royal life. In fact, the mother of three has been a wonderful support to the newcomer even giving her advice on things like protocol and dealing with ‘life inside the Firm’ as a royal insider reveals. And in return, Markle is reportedly grateful for her sister-in-law’s support and admires her for never putting the wrong foot forward.

The two have often been spotted together as of recent beginning from their presence at the Trooping the Colour event last June to watching Prince Harry and Prince William’s polo game to a joint appearance at the Wimbledon tennis tournament.

However, some people are still skeptical about the women’s real relationship with royal commentators calling their Wimbledon appearance a ‘PR stunt’. It can be remembered that a supposed rift between Markle and Middleton has long been rumored.

Life Before Royalty

In the end, though, Markle’s background as an actress may help her finally get used to the brighter spotlight she finds herself in. Before meeting and marrying a prince, the Duchess worked a variety of jobs in the entertainment industry. Her most notable role as an actress is her character Rachel Zane on the American legal drama ‘Suits’ which she played for seven seasons before leaving the show after her engagement.
