Now, the Duchess in particular is receiving a deeply personal defense from her best friend.
And she's calling this what it is -- undeserved hate from racist bullies.
Jess Mulroney is a Canadian stylist who happens to be longtime besties with Meghan Markle.
So now that the Duchess of Sussex has been bombarded with tabloid hate for taking a private jet despite her environmental views, Jess is speaking up.
"3 years of undeserved hate and abuse," Jess laments in her Instagram captions.
She puts her foot down: "It’s enough."
Jess is absolutely right.
The stylist went on to share a message taking aim at Meghan's most relentless critics.
"When someone faces unfair criticism, you call it out," Jess affirms.
"When that person is your friend and family," she continues. "You call those critics what they truly are."
A lot of people have tried to dance around why British tabloids seem to delight in taking cheap shots at Meghan Markle.
Jess isn't mincing words.
She concludes: "Shame on you, you racist bullies."
She's right. Meghan's status as a divorced American cannot alone account for how much vitriol has been hurled in her direction.
She is a beautiful woman of color in the royal family, and a lot of racists feel threatened by that.
Clearly, Jess and other celebrities are not the only ones who feel that way.
"Bullies," chimed in a comment.
Another commenter emphasized: "RACIST bullies."
"It’s not even just the British press," another follower wrote. "@thetorontostar called them 'King and Queen of Hypocrisy' today."
They added: "Imagine if instead they focussed on the fact that millions of little girls who have never seen a woman like themselves in such an esteemed public position ..."
The comment continued: "... are now inspired to do great things in their community."
"Just imagine if that were the press," the comment concluded.
Wouldn't that be amazing? But then, racists aren't interested in clicking on how Meghan inspires people.
"Goes through our head constantly that she’s a brand new mom," another commenter points out.
She really is! Archie is still a tiny baby.
"Navigating that alone is [a lot]," the follower acknowledges. "Let alone being dragged every which and scrutinized for every little thing."
"Isn’t it crazy how we hold a higher standard to children than we do adults these days....." the comment marvels.
The follower then praises: "You’re a great friend Jess."
Beloved The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil has also spoken out to defend Meghan.
"Ugh. Dear England and English press," her post begins.
She instruct the tabloids: "Just say you hate her because she's black, and him for marrying a black woman and be done with it God dammit."
"Your bullying is so embarrassing and obvious," Jameela accuses. "You've all lost your marbles. It's 2019. Grow up."
She then very correctly points out that royals, world leaders, and a number of others simply cannot safely fly commercial.
It's not safe for them and it's not safe for other passengers. This entire "scandal" was concocted as another excuse to shame the Duchess.
