Meghan Markle Defends Herself Against Misinformation: 'What I Actually Say Isn't Controversial'

Being in the public eye comes with a lot of benefits, but also a lot of drawbacks. When Meghan Markle married into the royal family, she definitely earned a lot of positives — a royal title, wealth, and increased fame — but she also drew a lot of harsh criticism almost immediately.

Meghan has now spoken out against that treatment.

Meghan Markle has faced a lot of criticism since marrying Prince Harry.

Much of the controversy surrounding Meghan, Harry, and their relationship were not always fair or balanced critiques, as evidenced by the difference in reactions to Kate Middleton performing some of the same actions.

The negative treatment of the couple by the press was part of their decision to step away from their duties as members of the royal family.

In a new video from Fortune Magazine, Meghan has defended herself against some of the controversies.

″We have got to all put our stock in something that is true and we need to have reliable media and news sources that are telling us the truth… when you know something is wrong, report it, talk about it,″ Meghan says.

“It’s like we live in the future when you’re talking about bots and trolls and all of these things,” she continued.

“It seems so fantastical, but that’s actually the current state of affairs and that is shaping how we interact with each other online and off — and that’s the piece that’s important," Meghan emphasized in the video, "It is not just an isolated experience."

"It transcends into how you interact with anyone around you and certainly your own relationship with yourself.”

″If you look back at anything I’ve said, what ends up being inflammatory is people’s interpretation of it. But if you listen to what I actually say it’s not controversial."
