The royal drama continues apace, with Meghan Markle claiming she doesn't care if the public loves her, she just wants everyone to understand her perspective and the Queen reportedly fretting over her and Prince Harry's proclivity for chattiness.
In the past few years, the public and media have been laser-focused on and highly crticial of Meghan and Harry, causing the pair recently to file lawsuits against tabloids in the U.K. and speak out in a documentary about the sheer hell of living their lives with a nonstop barrage of criticism and judgment.
Now, Meghan is speaking out again to The Telegraph, saying she doesn't "want people to love her," she just "wanted them to be able to hear her." Meghan wants people to focus on what she's focused on …. Namely organizations that help others.
The paper followed her to an event with Luminary Bakery, an organization that helps disadvantaged women through training and employment opportunities.
"One of the things I have realized since being here in the UK is that people have an expectation when I'm coming somewhere, so I'm like, 'Let's just be really relaxed, keep everyone nice and chilled, because at the end of the day we're all just women,'" Meghan said at the event. "We all have a story to tell, and I feel honored that I am getting to hear yours."
She added: "I find that when you strip all the layers away, as people, and especially as women, we can find deep connection with each other, and a shared understanding."
Meanwhile, the Queen and Prince William are reportedly concerned about the "fragile place" Meghan and Harry are in right now.
Daily Express royal correspondent Richard Palmer tweeted: "While there is concern for Harry and Meghan's mental health, their attitude has disappointed the Queen and other members of the Royal Family, according to several sources."
