Former Second Lady and presidential candidate of the United States of American, Hillary Clinton has words of encouragement for Meghan Markle.
A few days ago, Meghan Markle shared her candid view on how she currently feel in her position as a wife (married to Prince Harry), new mother and media reports about her.
On the tour in Southern Africa, where she was interviewed by renowned journalist Tom Bradby for a documentary on ITV, which was aired last month. The documentary went viral with social media folks divided into two, one in support of her open nature to reveal the truth of how she is feeling, and the other thinks it’s a privilege to be part of the Royal Family.
In one of the clips, she said: “Look, Any woman, especially when they are pregnant – you’re really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging. And then when you have a newborn – you know… And especially as a woman, it’s a lot.”
After which Tom asked her if she was doing okay, she continued: “And, also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m OK. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”
This drew the attention of female members of parliament in the United Kingdom, who sent her an open letter to affirm their solid support for her. The latest to join the tall list of women who are behind Meghan and sending encouraging words her way is the former Second Lady and presidential candidate of the United States of America, Hilary Clinton, she is currently in the UK promoting her new book – The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.
During an interview with Emma Barnett on BBC Radio 5 Live, she added her voice to Meghan’s situation, “I think even if you go back and look at social media from the time the engagement was announced, race was clearly an element in it,” she said. “And to think that some of your – what we would call mainstream – media actually allowed that to be printed in their pages, or amplified, was heartbreaking and wrong,” she said.
“I feel as a mother I just want to put my arms around her. Oh my God, I want to hug her! I want to tell her to hang in there, don’t let those bad guys get you down. Keep going, do what you think is right, she added, “You know, it’s not easy. And there are some techniques that can be learned along the way, some humour, some deflection, whatever, which I’m sure she will come to. But it is tough what she is going through. And I think she deserves a lot better.”
Several women around the world took to twitter to join a special hashtag #WeLoveYouMeghan created to show love and encourage Meghan Markle to stay strong.
