Meghan Markle fans attack Prince Charles' speech on diversity

Meghan Markle fans have launched an attack on Prince Charles following his Windrush Day speech – as they accused him of failing to protect his daughter-in-law from racist criticism.

The Prince of Wales, 71, paid tribute to the ‘invaluable contribution of Black people in Britain’ in a video to mark 72 years since the Empire Windrush arrived at Tilbury Docks in Essex, bearing around 500 people from Jamaica.

Charles added that ‘diversity of our society is its greatest strength’ – but admirers of the Duchess of Sussex, 38, labelled the Duke of Cornwall a ‘hypocrite’, claiming he did ‘nothing to protect’ Prince Harry’s wife from ‘racial bullying’.

The Duke of Sussex, 35, previously raged about ‘racist’ social media attacks on Meghan, who has a black mother and white father, and said the media published articles with ‘racial undertones’.

A clip of Charles talking about the ‘debt of gratitude’ the nation owes the Windrush generation was posted to his social media platforms on Monday.

The Windrush generation was named after the ship that brought over one of the first groups of West Indian migrants invited to the UK in 1948 to help rebuild post-war Britain. 

But despite many followers praising the royal for his thoughtful speech, some made unfounded claims that the prince had ‘failed’ to help his daughter-in-law.

One person wrote: ‘This from the man who sat back and watched his own daughter-in-law get racially bullied and did absolutely nothing to support her.’

Another said: ‘Shame on him for real. He did nothing to protect his daughter-in-law… as diverse as they come.’ 

A third questioned: ‘What about Meghan? Why did you allow her to be abused? Was she not valuable enough?’

A fourth wrote: ‘Shame on him! That family is not smart. Given their history, they should have gone out of their way to hug-up and protect Meghan Markle. She is as diverse as they will ever get. Now they look as out of touch and ‘un-woke’ as ever.’

However, some royal enthusiasts noticed the attack, and replied: ‘Meghan Markle fans who know nothing about what went on behind doors spreading hate to Harry’s father who funds him.’

Another said: ‘Gotta say… Judging from these comments, Meghan is well liked.’

Prince Harry and Meghan are currently living in LA with their one-year-old son Archie after stepping back from life in the royal family. 

In November 2016, Harry lashed out at the ‘wave of abuse and harassment’ the former US actress had faced from the media – citing the ‘racial undertones of comment pieces’ among his concerns. 

Elsewhere, the duchess spoke in the 2019 ITV documentary Harry and Meghan: An African Journey about finding it hard to deal with the spotlight following her wedding to the duke.

She said she had ‘no idea’ of the struggles she would deal with as a member of The Firm and revealed her friends warned her not to marry Prince Harry because the public scrutiny would ‘destroy your life’.
