Meghan Markle insists she’s ‘not controversial,’ blasts Critics


Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, claimed on Tuesday that her public comments were often misunderstood by detractors and that they were “not controversial.”

The Duchess of Sussex talked about “what it will take to create humane tech” at Fortune’s “Most Powerful Women” virtual event.

The Duchess of Sussex attended the meeting from her Santa Barbara home, telling viewers, ′′We have got to all put our stock in something that is true and we need to have reliable media and news sources that are telling us the truth… when you know something is wrong, report it, talk about it.″

“It’s like we live in the future when you’re talking about bots and trolls and all of these things,” she continued. “It seems so fantastical, but that’s actually the current state of affairs and that is shaping how we interact with each other online and off — and that’s the piece that’s important. It is not just an isolated experience. It transcends into how you interact with anyone around you and certainly your own relationship with yourself.”

Meghan, who was born in the United States, asked people to spread positivity online and urged Americans to vote in the November presidential election. This sparked outrage in certain places because the royal family of the United Kingdom does not typically engage in politics.

“If you look back at anything I’ve said, what ends up being inflammatory is people’s interpretation of it,” she remarked.


“But if you listen to what I actually say, it’s not controversial, and some of it is reactive to things that just haven’t happened.”

After abandoning their roles as full-time working members of the royal family and relocating to North America, first to Canada, and subsequently to the United States, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex started working on this issue this year.

Markle goes on to say that she tries to manage her detractors by having a ‘sense of humour,’ despite the fact that some of their remarks are ‘a bit of gravity’.

‘The moment that you’re able to be liberated from all these other opinions of what you know to be true, then I think it’s very easy to live with truth and live with authenticity,’ she explained. ‘That’s how I choose to move through the world.’

Meghan urged people to avoid clicking on false content online and to report incorrect remarks on Tuesday.

“As we are just days away from this election period, we have got to all put our stock in something that is true,” she said. “And we all need to have reliable media news sources that are telling us the truth. Without that I don’t know where it leaves us.”

Allowing abuse and disinformation on social media is “not sustainable,” she added, and must be addressed.

People ‘are all going through a reset and we are all going through a moment of reckoning — and probably a re-evaluation of what really matters,’ the mother-of-one remarked of the continuing Coronavirus epidemic.

‘For me, it’s been amazing to spend time with my husband and watch our little one grow and that’s where our attention has been. In addition to, of course, how we can be a part of the change of energy that so many people are craving right now and whatever we can do to help in that capacity.’

Reforming online spaces—by engaging with everyone from tech CEOs to grassroots activists—sat at the crossroads of their interests, which included veterans’ problems, mental health, and gender equality. “It’s like taking two steps forward and five steps backward,” the duchess remarked.

Advertisers should boycott networks that enable hate speech, such as Facebook, according to the Duke and Duchess.

During Tuesday’s conversation, Meghan said, “It’s not about trying to take down Facebook, for example.” “If the changes that are being made are in fact made, it’s for the good of everyone, Facebook included.” However, she emphasized that transformation must be long-term. Meghan said, “We can’t have this slap on the wrist,”

The duchess concluded her ‘appearance’ at the summit with a statement from Georgia O’Keefe, an American artist: ‘I have already settled it for myself so flattery and criticism go down the same drain and I am quite free.’

After stepping down from their royal duties in March to pursue new professions, Harry and Meghan currently reside in Southern California. They left the United Kingdom after increasing media hatred.
