Meghan Markle’s closest friends have spoken out against “the global bullying” they are seeing against the Duchess. 

Five unnamed people from her inner circle have opened up about what Meghan is really like and want to “speak the truth” about their friend, after months of negative press.

In a series of interviews with PEOPLE magazine, they revealed why they wanted to break their silence after two years.

One former co-star said: “Meg has silently sat back and endured the lies and untruths.”

Harry and Meghan are expecting their first child this spring and the co-star added: “We worry about what this is doing to her and the baby.

“It’s wrong to put anyone under this level of emotional trauma, let alone when they’re pregnant.”

The five friends also revealed that Meghan hasn’t changed since becoming a royal. One LA friend spoke about her caring ways, when she visited the Duchess in London.

She told the publication: “We had a couple of days together recently. Her husband was out of town on work. In the room she made up for me, there was a candle lit by the bed, slippers and a robe. We were the only two in the house. It was our time.

“She made the most lovely meals. She made tea every day. It was raining and muddy outside, so the dogs got all dirty, and she’s wiping them off with towels.

“How much she loves her animals, how much she loves her friends, how much she loves feeding you, taking care of you — none of that has changed.”

The candid interviews come after Hello! revealed last week that Kensington Palace are spending hours each week monitoring their social media accounts to moderate the sexist and racist comments aimed at the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex and their fans.
