The Duchess of Sussex has been voted the most unfairly treated person in the UK. 

A survey, which was conducted by PlayOJO, revealed that Meghan came out on top when thousands were asked who they felt had a particularly difficult year.

Other contenders included Greta Thunberg, Ant McPartlin and Queen Elizabeth.

The actress has constantly been ridiculed by the public. Her every move has been scrutinised and every word twisted.

No matter what she did, she was attacked, insulted and slated.

She quickly became one of the most disrespected women in the UK, despite doing nothing wrong. 

She supported the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire, became Patron of animal welfare charity The Mayhew, helped design a clothing collection in aid of Smart Works and became Guest Editor for the September issue of British Vogue.

Personally, Meghan became a mum for the very first time. She gave birth to her and Harry’s first child in May.

However, despite all of this, Meghan was constantly heckled and shamed by the public, even during her pregnancy.

She spoke out about the constant hatred in an interview with ITV: “Any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable. So that was made really challenging and then when you have a newborn … especially as a woman, it’s really, it’s a lot.”

"So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mum or trying to be a newlywed."

When asked how she was coping, Meghan replied: "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."

Let’s hope 2020 is an easier year for Meghan.

Meghan is the Vice President for The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and this marked one of her first engagements since controversial documentary Harry and Meghan: An African Journey aired.

Meghan was supposed to attend the royal engagement by herself but Prince Harry made a surprise appearance.

The couple put on a united front as reports of a ‘royal crisis’ continue.

It is understood that the Royal Family are concerned for both Harry and Meghan who have both expressed their upset about the media backlash they have faced over the past few months.

A royal source told the BBC that Prince William was worried about his younger brother and that the Sussex’s are in a "in a fragile place".

In the documentary, both The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said that the abuse they’ve faced from the British tabloids has had a severe impact on their mental health.

Meghan even revealed her friends advised her not to marry Harry because the “British tabloids will destroy your life”.

Prince Harry admitted that part of this role is ignoring these rumours, but sometimes it is too much to deal with.

"Part of this job is putting on a brave face but, for me and my wife, there is a lot of stuff that hurts, especially when the majority of it is untrue,” he stressed.

There's no doubt their families will support Harry and Meghan during this troubling time.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have announced they are pursuing legal action against the Mail on Sunday after they published Meghan’s private letter.

Prince Harry issued a moving statement tonight where he revealed he has watched his wife suffer in silence over the past few months and he won’t stand for the media’s bullying anymore.

He wrote, “My wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences – a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son.

“There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face – as so many of you can relate to – I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been. Because in today’s digital age, press fabrications are repurposed as truth across the globe. One day’s coverage is no longer tomorrow’s chip-paper,” Harry stressed.

“Up to now, we have been unable to correct the continual misrepresentations – something that these select media outlets have been aware of and have therefore exploited on a daily and sometimes hourly basis.

“It is for this reason we are taking legal action, a process that has been many months in the making. The positive coverage of the past week from these same publications exposes the double standards of this specific press pack that has vilified her almost daily for the past nine months; they have been able to create lie after lie at her expense simply because she has not been visible while on maternity leave.

“She is the same woman she was a year ago on our wedding day, just as she is the same woman you’ve seen on this Africa tour.

The dad continued, “For these select media this is a game, and one that we have been unwilling to play from the start. I have been a silent witness to her private suffering for too long. To stand back and do nothing would be contrary to everything we believe in.”

The Duke said the behaviour of the British tabloid media has been disturbing and destructive, “The contents of a private letter were published unlawfully in an intentionally destructive manner to manipulate you, the reader, and further the divisive agenda of the media group in question. In addition to their unlawful publication of this private document, they purposely misled you by strategically omitting select paragraphs, specific sentences, and even singular words to mask the lies they had perpetuated for over a year.

Harry added, “There comes a point when the only thing to do is to stand up to this behaviour, because it destroys people and destroys lives. Put simply, it is bullying, which scares and silences people. We all know this isn’t acceptable, at any level. We won’t and can’t believe in a world where there is no accountability for this.

“Though this action may not be the safe one, it is the right one. Because my deepest fear is history repeating itself. I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.”

The case against Associated Newspapers will be privately funded by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The Duchess of Sussex’s style is second to none. She has stunned in gorgeous Givenchy dresses, chic pant suits and stunning evening gowns, but it’s her casual outfits that always seem to win us over.

As a member of the royal family, Meghan obviously has to abide by certain fashion rules but she always manages to look effortless and today’s look is no different.

The mum stepped out in one of her most casual outfits to date, and many fans were surprised to see the royal wearing a denim jacket.

The outfit reminded many of Princess Diana’s iconic everyday style. It was her off-duty looks that made her one of the biggest style icons of our time and now it looks like her daughter-in-law is following in her shoes.

We honestly never thought this moment would ever arrive, but fate has aligned the stars.

PRINCESS Meghan Markle and QUEEN Beyoncé met at the UK premiere of The Lion King last night, and everyone's hearts stopped from witnessing sheer excellence.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a rare public appearance at the premiere, looking like movie stars themselves. Such greatness, much power.

The new parents walked hand-in-hand down Leicester Square's red carpet, greeting fans and smiling for pictures before meeting the legendary Queen Bey and her husband Jay-Z.

The iconic entertainer voiced Nala in the Disney live-action movie, calling Meghan ‘my princess’ when they embraced. Jesus take the wheel, we've vacated the earth.

Apparently, the two couples exchanged talk over life with newborn babies, which is just adorable. They're real people too, see? 

Many of us will remember the Brit Awards acceptance video for Best International Group, in which Jay-Z and Beyoncé created in the Louvre with Meghan Markle as the Mona Lisa.

"In honour of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas," the Instagram caption read. "Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy."

It's unclear whether the pair have met the Duke and Duchess of Sussex before, but they greeted each other like old pals.

"The baby, so beautiful," Beyoncé praised, about Harry and Meghan's newborn Archie. "We love you guys." 

Prince Harry also asked about Rumi and Sir, The Carters' two-years-old twins;

"They are not here. They don’t come on every trip. We left them at home. They would loved to have been here," Beyoncé replied.

Jay Z then apparently offered the royal couple a parenting recommendation, saying; "The best advice I can give you, always find time for yourself," he said.

What a surreal meeting between two powerhouse couples, busy inspiring the entire world with their talents. What we would have done to have bagged a seat at that premiere…
