American actress Meghan Markle was ecstatic when Prince Harry proposed to her last year and assumed getting married to royalty meant that she was set for life, but she found out that becoming a part of the royal family meant that she would be under intense public scrutiny, which has just gotten to her in a huge way.
According to Freedom Daily , the actress just shut down all of her social media accounts – Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
“Ms. Markle is grateful to all of her followers over the years,” the palace said in a statement. “However, she has not been using her accounts for some time and has decided to close them.”
“That’s the way that she built ‘her brand,’” Sky News added of the actress’ social media life. “Sharing details of her life as well as her views on everything from political participation to racial equality.”
I guess she was forced by the royal family to give up her social media accounts when they realized that her being active online could become a liability for them. They strive to be politically neutral, so Markle’s vocal anti-Trump is a big problem for them. They are still not recovered from the resurfacing of the clip that surfaced of her blatantly bashing the sitting president.
She was asked how the momentum of then-candidate Donald Trump could be slowed down and she held nothing back with her response – take a look:
“It’s really the moment that I go, Suits has been filmed in Canada and I might just stay there. If that’s reality we are talking about, that is a huge game changer in terms of how we move in the world here.
Of course Donald Trump is divisive. Just think about female voters alone. I think it was in 2012 when the Republicans lost the female vote by 12 points, which is a big number and with as misogynistic as Donald Trump is and so vocal about it, that’s a huge chunk of it. You’re not voting for a woman if it’s Clinton because she’s a woman, but because Donald Trump has made it easy to see that you don’t like the world that he’s painting.”
