Meghan Markle has developed a way of dealing with negative press: She doesn’t read it.
After a tough week in the media spotlight, with ongoing rumors that Meghan and her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, are not getting along, the Duchess of Sussex tunes out the negativity, according to Vanity Fair.
The magazine wrote that Prince Harry often reads newspapers (including The Sun, which broke the story that he and Meghan were leaving London), although his bride steers clear of the press.
“Meghan is a believer in karma and she doesn’t want to sit there reading negative online stories and comments about herself,” a source told Vanity Fair. “She 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.”
Some of the negative articles seem to paint Meghan as a diva accustomed to getting her way. The Sun revealed the queen may have been upset over the tiara Meghan chose for her wedding. Also, when word spread that Meghan and Harry were moving from London, Palace insiders said that tension between Harry and Prince William might be the culprit, according to Vanity Fair.
Another article in the Daily Telegraph dished on Kate being reduced to tears during a dress fitting for Princess Charlotte before Meghan’s wedding, allegedly over the way Meghan acted leading up to the wedding, which upset Kate. Royal aides neither denied nor confirmed the incident.
Meghan has been widely praised for her enthusiasm and work ethic so far as a royal, from her recent energetic South Pacific tour to her best-selling charity cookbook, she is known for being direct and has ruffled some feathers as a result.
