MEGHAN Markle fans have hit back at an article that pits royal women against one another ahead of the Duchess of Cambridge’s 40th birthday this weekend.
Royal commentator Omid Scobie shared an opinion piece from a tabloid newspaper that appeared to speak favourably of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, who turns 40 on Sunday, but heavily criticized other royal women including Meghan Markle, Princess Charlene of Monaco and Queen Letizia of Spain. Mr Scobie wrote: “I don’t understand this constant need to use op-eds about the Duchess of Cambridge’s 40th to sling mud at women that have nothing to do with her or her birthday. The language in this vile article is sexist, hateful and creepy.”
Jo Holmes echoed Omid’s thoughts writing: “This article is vile.”
While writer Abby Gardner referred to the article as “deeply disturbing”.
Royal fan Mayita simply wrote “horrible”, while another follower of Mr Scobie’s with the screenname Meiya wrote: “Wow – that article is shockingly hateful.
“And so glaringly exaggerated in its compliments to Catherine – it’s almost as if it mocks her too.”
