Following a show of support from fans on Twitter that has #WeLoveYouMeghan trending, Wendy Williams made it clear she’s not giving out any sympathy to the Duchess of Sussex. Is she being way harsh or just telling it like it is?
After a clip from ITV’s documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey made the rounds online, many of Meghan’s fans have shown their support and sympathy in regards to the pressures of being in the spotlight.
In the short preview of the documentary, which you can watch on Wednesday night in the U.S., Meghan opened up to reporter Tom Bradby about the challenges of living a normal life while being in the spotlight.
In the clip, Meghan told Bradby, “When I first met Harry, my friends were so excited. My U.S. friends were happy because I was happy. But my British friends, they were sure he was lovely, but they said I shouldn’t do it because ‘The British tabloids will destroy your life.'”
Her statement begged the question of whether or not she knew what she was getting into when she married into the royal family. Wendy Williams made it clear that she feels Markle knew exactly what she was doing on her show Tuesday morning.
Williams responded to the preview stating, “Yes you did. You knew exactly what you were doing… And I applaud her plot-ation on the royal situation. But please, don’t try to garner sympathy from us. You knew what you were doing.”
Again not showing any sympathy, Williams proceeded to give a bit of advice to the royal couple by saying, “Harry and Meghan have nothing to lose by moving to America. Why not? Move to America and live part-time in Africa like you want to do.”
“You have to still go back to England. Have a place in all three places. Have a mansion in Malibu, a big hut — I’ve never been to Africa, I don’t know — a big hotel or wherever you’re gonna live in Africa and then have your royal palace place in England.”
She ended her segment with one last statement which isn’t leaving anyone questioning exactly how Williams feels: “Meghan, nobody feels sorry for you. You knew what you were signing up for, girl!”
