In an upcoming ITV documentary,Â Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle expressed how the negative press she has received since marrying into the royal family has taken a toll on her mental health, especially now that her first child, Archie, has arrived. Now, supporters on Twitter are standing with Markle and talking about how heinously sheâ€™s been treated by the British tabloids in the past year.
â€śAny woman, especially when theyâ€™re pregnant, youâ€™re really vulnerable, and so that was made really challenging,â€ť Markle told ITVâ€™s Tom Bradby in a clip from the documentary, which airs Sunday, October 20th. â€śAnd then when you have a newborn, you know, and especially as a woman, itâ€™s a lot.â€ť
At the beginning of the month, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially filed a lawsuit against a British tabloid that illegally published a private letter from Markle to her father, written before their May 2018 wedding.
Harry wrote in an official statement, â€śIâ€™ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditized to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.â€ť
Meghan we love you! So sorry it was so bad đź’—

Markleâ€™s supporters have come together on Twitter to stand with her as her battle with the media continues. Using the hashtag #WeLoveYouMeghan, the outpouring of love for the Duchess is now trending worldwide.
I am sickened by all of this. Iâ€™m just so tired of the hate, despite the fact that she really is an amazing woman who has done nothing wrong. You can see the pain in her eyes and how sheâ€™s holding back her tears. I donâ€™t like this. At. All. #WeLoveYouMeghan pic.twitter.com/2wimlIps7g

We hope Markle sees how much the world supports her and that she gets the mental health support she needs.
