We're just going to go ahead and file this one under: OF COURSE. Being that Meghan Markle has been the victim of endless defamatory news stories and Twitter trolls, it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to hear that it's affecting areas of her personal life -- but it sucks nonetheless. According to a new report in Us Weekly, Harry and Meghan's relationship is suffering, thanks to the out-of-nowhere smear campaign against the duchess. Can this poor woman catch a break?!

  • Even though practically none of the reports about Meghan's behavior have come from credible sources, it's been stressful for the couple.

    Not long after The Sun published a piece, saying that Prince Harry felt that Prince William was trying to "wreck his relationship" with Meghan before the royal wedding, it's being reported that Harry has officially cracked. 

    Us is reporting that Harry "feels powerless" when it comes to the unflattering stories that continue to crop up about Meghan. A source says they've "put pressure on her relationship with Harry." Additionally, the supposed insider said, "He’s very frustrated with how little can be done. Keeping her away from the negativity and harm has been hard for him. It’s been his purpose in their relationship to keep her away from the negativity.”

    Again, who knows how much weight these sources carry, but it's unsettling to hear regardless.

  • Evidently, though, Meghan has a different approach when it comes to dealing with the daily barrage of gossip -- she avoids it.

    Earlier this month, a source told Vanity Fair's royal correspondent Katie Nicholl that “[Meghan] feels to a degree the British press is out to get her and while she’s aware of the news and what’s going on, she tries her best not to read all the stories about her."




  • Good idea, Meg. 

  • Even before marrying Prince Harry, Meghan apparently lived by this ethos.

    In an interview with Vanity Fair in November 2017 Meghan said, "I don’t read any press. I haven’t even read press for Suits. The people who are close to me anchor me in knowing who I am. The rest is noise."

  • Here's to hoping Prince Harry can take a page out of Meghan's book.

    Because even though he may be able to control a lot, he certainly can't control the press. 

    Sounds like it's time to sit back, relax, and let Jesus take the wheel, Harry. Your sanity will thank you.
