Let's be honest here. She may be a duchess, but Meghan Markle has had a rough and seriously fluctuating go since she joined the royal family in May 2018. At first, it was reported that everyone in The Firm was all about the Duchess of Sussex. They loved her! She had a solo outing with Queen Elizabeth! Prince Charles had a cute nickname for her! She and Kate Middleton were besties! Now, though? Not so much. It seems like every day there's a rumor going around about how people in the royal family are annoyed with her. 

It all started around the time of the royal wedding. Not only was her father, Thomas Markle, and half-sister, Samantha Markle, causing serious drama, but gossip started to emerge, claiming she was "difficult." There was a reported explosion from Prince Harry, who yelled something along the lines of "what Meghan wants, she gets!" Then Meghan reportedly made Kate cry. Then members of her staff quit. Then she had a lavish NYC baby shower that the queen found uncouth!

Is it all true?

To be honest, we hope not, but there have been a few photos where members of the royal family seem, well, annoyed with Meghan. Perhaps it's all in our imagination, but man, if a picture speaks a thousand words. 

Here's 20 times the royal family seemed irritated with poor Meghan. Give the woman a break already!

  • Um, Wills?

    The annual Christmas Day walkabout in 2017, before Meghan joined the royal family officially. Kate looks fine with Meg here, but why won't Wills look at her?

  • Um, Kate?!

    And now Kate is looking away from Meghan, and to be honest, looking a little irritated. Did Prince William say something to her about Meg?

  • Harry Wouldn't ... Would He?

    It's almost impossible to imagine Prince Harry ever annoyed with Meghan Markle, but hey, couples fight. Is he irritated with Meghan here? Let's hope not. 

  • Cold Shoulder

    Well, if this doesn't speak volumes, we're not sure what does? Prince William, who reportedly takes the most issue with Meghan, is just walking ahead of her here. 

    Or perhaps this is just royal protocol.

  • Giving It Back
