Jameela Jamil has stepped in to defend Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle against the cruel treatment by the British press regarding her usage of private planes to go on holiday last week.

Celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Pink, Elton John, and Meghan's best friend, Jessica Mulroney, have all blasted the media for degrading the Duchess consistently and unfairly.

The Good Place actress and activist Jameela Jamil has now had her say, pointing out that the reason why the royals take private planes is because of their assassination risk.

"Ugh. Dear England and English press, just say you hate her because she’s black, and him for marrying a black woman and be done with it God dammit," she wrote on Twitter.

"Your bullying is so embarrassing and obvious. You’ve all lost your marbles. It’s 2019. Grow up.

"I will never forget reading an English sh*t rag, writing the words, “Meghan’s exotic DNA shall certainly THICKEN the royal blue blood line…” (bangs head against table and throws up in own mouth.)" Jamil added.

"I too used to not understand that in this day and age there’s still such a distinct hatred/disrespect towards black women in the world, because I grew up sheltered and without personally feeling any negative way towards any race. But we have to open our eyes. It so prevalent," she tweeted.

"ALSO, it’s not safe for us to be on the same planes as royals or presidents you absolute muppets. They are prime targets for kidnap and sometimes assassination. It’s in the interest of us civilians to not be endangered by proximity to people in such powerful positions."

Hopefully the media and general public realise the inequality which Prince Harry's wife faces as a result of her race, and checks their privilege.

Fair play to Jameela for saying it like it is.

The Duchess of Sussex has made her first public appearance since welcoming her baby boy Archie last month. The new mum attended Trooping the Colour with her husband Prince Harry.

Meghan looked as stunning as ever in a navy blue ensemble by Givenchy and a hat by Noel Stewart. The new mum was glowing as she arrived at Buckingham Palace for Queen Elizabeth’s birthday celebration.

Meghan joined her husband Prince Harry, The Duchess of Cambridge and The Duchess of Cornwall for the carriage procession this morning.

Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 93rd birthday today, even though her actual birthday is April 21.

The spectacular Trooping the Colour is one of the biggest events for the royals so we’re not surprised to see Meghan make an appearance this year.

The Duchess has taken a step back from her royal duties as she is on maternity leave. She has not been seen in public since May 8 when she introduced baby Archie to the world with Prince Harry.

It is understood that Meghan will take three months maternity leave, meaning she will officially return to royal duties later in the summer.

“Three months’ maternity is standard in the US for American mums – they don’t normally get the six or even 12 months women get here in the UK. So this is totally normal for Meghan.”

Prince Harry has given his first interview since the Duchess of Sussex gave birth to a health baby boy, thanking the public for their support during Meghan's pregnancy.

The Duke of Sussex spoke to the BBC this afternoon, saying himself and his wife were "absolutely thrilled" about their newborn son.

He confirmed that both Meghan and the baby were doing "incredibly well" since the little one arrived, weighing 7lbs 3oz (3.2kg).

Prince Harry was present for the birth, and added that the couple are still thinking about names for their infant, who was delivered today at 05:26 BST.

Buckingham Palace stated that;

"The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Earl Spencer have been informed and are delighted with the news.

"The Duchess's mother, Doria Ragland, who is overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild, is with their Royal Highnesses at Frogmore Cottage."

The Duke of Sussex couldn't stop beaming as he delivered the news to the press, lavishing praise on his wife enduring the labour.

He added that the little one had been "a little overdue" and that he will be making another announcement in two days' time "so everyone can see the baby."

When quizzed on his experience in the delivery room, Harry smiled and said: "I haven't been at many births. This is definitely my first birth. It was amazing, absolutely incredible, and, as I said, I'm so incredibly proud of my wife.

"As every father and parent will ever say, you know, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to-die-for, so I'm just over the moon."

He continued on the topic of Meghan's labour: "It's been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension."

Harry and Meghan's baby boy automatically acquired US citizenship via the former actress at birth, so is a dual citizen.

He is currently seventh in line to the throne, behind the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and his children, and Prince Harry. The infant is the Queen's eighth great-grandchild.

Prime Minister Theresa May responded to the baby news, tweeting; 

"Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the arrival of their baby boy. Wishing you all the best at this happy time."

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who married the couple in the summer of last year, wished the couple joy; "May God bless the new family with love, health and happiness."

Congratulations to the new parents, and we can't wait to hear what name they choose for their newborn son.

We can all admit we’d love to live like a member of the royal family, especially after seeing Prince Harry and Meghan’s stunning Oxford home.

The first ever image of the property has been released by The Sun and we must admit we are hopelessly in love with the duo’s country pad. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved into the £2.5million farmhouse before their May wedding last year.

The property has four bedrooms, a large dining room, an outdoor seating area and even a two-bedroom cottage for Harry and Meghan’s staff.

The dream home is set in four acres of beautiful Oxfordshire land.

A friend of the royal couple told The Sun: “Meghan adores the area. She and Harry love walking the dogs there, and they can entertain their friends in complete solitude.”

“It’s a fabulous place with stunning views and extraordinarily private. It’s set in a small bowl of the beautiful countryside so is not overlooked in any way,” they added.

It is believed the parents-to-be will keep the cottage, even when they move into their new home in the coming weeks.

Kensington Palace confirmed that the parents-to-be are planning on moving early in the new year ahead of the arrival of their first child.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move into Frogmore Cottage once refurbishments are complete. It is believed the house is undergoing a large transformation to ensure it is a suitable home for a family.

The 10 bedroom house will be turned into a lavish family home. It will feature a nursery and even has space for a yoga studio and a gym.

Frogmore Cottage is located in Windsor and holds a very special place in Harry and Meghan’s hearts.

Since marrying the former Suits actress, Harry has been living a healthier life. “All she [Meghan] did was show him there’s another way to live and he’s become a huge fan. He eats well, doesn’t poison his body, exercises, does a bit of yoga and is a lot happier.”

Just Married: Introducing The Duke and Duchess of Sussex #RoyalWedding

A post shared by Kensington Palace (@kensingtonroyal) on

After deciding on the basics like the venue and the dress, the bride-to-be was faced with choosing her wedding tiara.

She remembered that day, saying that her number one priority was finding a piece that complemented her timeless Givenchy dress.

But she could not make the decision without her devoted partner, Prince Harry.

According to People, a new exhibition at Windsor castle called “A Royal Wedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex” tells the behind-the-scenes story of the royals’ big day.

“Harry and I had gone to Buckingham Palace to meet with Her Majesty The Queen to select one of the options that were there, which was an incredibly surreal day as you can imagine,” said Meghan’s recorded voice.

Both her and Harry decided on the gorgeous art deco style bandeau tiara.

“I think it was just perfect because it was so clean and simple – and also to that point, an extension of what Clare and I had been trying to do with the dress which was have something that could be so incredibly timeless but still feel modern.”

The diamond bandeau is an English style and was made in 1932, with the entire brooch dating from 1893, said Kensington Palace.

Prince Harry called the tiara “every girl’s dream”.

"Funnily enough, it was the one that suited the best, the one that looked the best on you without question," he said.

"I shouldn't have really been there – but an incredible loan by my grandmother. Very sweet."

How special that the two were able to choose one of his grandmother’s treasured tiaras together.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently announced they were expecting and were met with congratulations from people around the world.

The royals are over the moon for this next step in their relationship together and cannot wait to meet their little boy or girl.

Now, one of the next decisions the two will have to make is who their child’s godparents will be.

Royal tradition rules out honouring siblings with this title, but there are quite a few family friends in the running.

Here are the current godparent contenders:

Serena Williams

Serena’s close friendship with Meghan is often talked about. Being a mum herself as well, the tennis star is an obvious candidate for the godparent role.

Jessica and Ben Mulroney

As one of Meghan’s best friends and her personal stylist, Jessica is a clear contender. Her and her husband’s children were in Harry and Meghan’s wedding party as well.

The Duchess of Sussex was the maid of honour at her wedding. Lindsay is one of Meghan’s closest friends from university and the two have remained close ever since.

Zoe and Jake Warren

Jake was one of Princess Diana’s godsons and both him and his wife have grown up with Harry. Their daughter Zalie was also a bridesmaid in the royals’ wedding.

Misha Nonoo

Not only is the designer one of Meghan’s favourite travel companions, but her ex Alexander went to school with Harry as well. There are no more double dates but the four remain close.

Tom Inskip and Lara Hughes-Young

Since their days at Eton, Tom has been buddies with Harry ever since. Both Meghan and Harry attended his wedding in Jamaica.

Benita and Darren Litt

The couple’s two daughters were in the duke and duchess’ wedding party and Meghan is the girls' godmother. So it would only suit if the royals reciprocated the gesture.

However, we will just have to wait and see who Meghan and Harry choose as godmother and godfather for their baby.

Despite the Duke of Sussex's ample experience in giving public speeches, it seems that he still gets nervous in front of crowds.

In preparation of the Invictus Games 2018, Prince Harry wanted to practice his speech in front of the person whose opinion he values most – his wife.

Meghan Markle walked over to the rows of empty chairs set up for the big event and took a seat in the front row.

Her hubby took the stage with microphone in hand and began his practised words.

Outside the Sydney Opera House, Harry looked at his partner’s reassuring smile and found the words he knew would be spoken in front of a full house that evening.

With the support of his duchess, he knew he could do anything.

Many fans have already commented on how sweet Harry and Meghan’s relationship is.

“What a great picture. Duke and Duchess are showing their commitment to each other and to the causes close to their hearts,” said one comment.

“They truly are an amazing team”, said another.

Prince Harry started The Invictus Games four years ago after seeing the positive impact sport could have on the recovery and rehabilitation of wounded, injured and ill servicemen and women.

Wounded warriors compete from all over the world in sports like golf and wheelchair tennis.

It is sweet to see the couple supporting each other in all that they do, and we are seriously jealous of how perfect they are for each other!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made their first public appearance since announcing their joyous pregnancy news yesterday.

The couple are currently on tour in Australia. Meghan and Harry greeted the public in Sydney on their first day of royal engagements.

The Duke is Sussex seemed quite moved when he delivered a speech during their first day in Sydney.

Harry gushed about the public’s reaction to their pregnancy announcement.

“We genuinely couldn't think of a better place to announce the upcoming…err…baby," he shared.

The couple were welcomed by the Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and Lady Cosgrove at Admiralty House, Kirribilli to mark the beginning of their royal visit.

They even gave Meghan a toy koala. The Duchess told them that she would put it ‘in the nursery.’

Kensington Palace confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be welcoming their first child into the world in the spring of 2019.

Mere hours have passed since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were expecting their first child together, and the bookies already have a list of the top names for their baby.

The couple has yet to confirm whether they are expecting a boy or girl, and more than likely won’t because it doesn’t follow royal tradition, but that hasn’t stopped the betting houses from conjuring up a list of potential names for the parents-to-be.

Harry and Meghan will be welcoming their bundle of joy into the world in the Spring of 2019, but the couple won’t have to be as strict when it comes to their newborn’s title.

Alexander, Arthur and Philip are amongst the top names for a baby boy, which come as no surprise. The royals tend to pick from a list of traditional, family names.

Other potential options include Nicholas at 10/1, Alfred at 6/1, James at 50/1 and Thomas, after Meghan’s dad.

If the Duke and Duchess welcome a baby girl in the new year the odds of naming her Alice and Victoria are exceptionally high.

Obviously, many people hope Harry will honour his late-mum Princes Diana by naming their daughter after her. Isabella is currently at 6/1, followed by 12/1 Eleanor and Rachel at 25/1.

Who knows what name Harry and Meghan will choose for their first child, but there’s no doubt it’ll be traditional.

We do hope they honour Diana in some way. There’s no doubt his mum would be overjoyed to hear her son’s incredible news on this special day.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot in the most magical May wedding this year. Their love story is like something out of a fairytale and we couldn't be more jealous. 

They may be one of the most-loved celebrity couples of the 21st century, but like all of us, former Suits actress Meghan couldn’t help but worry after her first date with the prince.

A close friend of the royal couple set them up on a blind date back in 2016. 

Meghan only had one question to ask about her now-husband when her friend recommended going on a date with him.

All she asked was “Is he nice and kind?”

The couple enjoyed an “intoxicating first date” but Meghan was extremely worried about one thing in particular.

According to royal biographer Andrew Morton, the Duchess of Sussex was afraid she came across as too eager after she agreed to a second date with the prince.

"As she relived that fateful evening in her mind, she perhaps wondered if she had been too eager to accept his invitation to meet again the following day.”

We’re sure the Duke of Sussex was thrilled when Meghan agreed to a second date: "They were mesmerised by one another, Harry enthralled by her beauty, sophistication and perceptiveness.”

Now if only we could find a fella like Prince Harry.
