PARLIAMENT STANDS ‘IN SOLIDARITY’ WITH MEGHAN MARKLE

Female British lawmakers are letting Meghan Markle know they have her back after she and husband Prince Harry spoke out against the raw treatment they have received at the hands of the tabloids.

On Tuesday, 72 women shared their solidarity for the royal mom in an open letter, led by Holly Lynch of the Labour Party.

"Women MPs from all political parties have put aside our differences to stand in solidarity with the Duchess of Sussex today and are sending her this open letter," Lynch wrote on Twitter, sharing images of the letter and all who signed it.

"On occasions, stories and headlines have represented an invasion of your privacy and have sought to cast aspersions about your character, without any good reason," the letter states. "Even more concerning still, we are calling out what can only be described as outdated, colonial undertones to some of these stories."

It continues, "As women Members of Parliament from all backgrounds, we stand with you in saying it cannot be allowed to go unchallenged."

Harry and Meghan have launched a legal battle against the Mail on Sunday for publishing Meghan's letter to her estranged father Thomas Markle, and Harry is suing The Sun and The Daily Mirror for allegedly intercepting his phone messages.

The pair also spoke out in the documenatry Harry & Meghan: An African Journey. "Look, part of this job and part of any job, like everybody, means putting on a brave face and turning a cheek to a lot of the stuff. But again, for me and for my wife, of course, there's a lot of stuff that hurts — especially when the majority of it is untrue," Harry said.

Meghan revealed that she just takes "each day as it comes," adding, "I think the grass is always greener. You have no idea. It's really hard to understand what it's like. I know what it seems like it should be, but it's a very different thing."

Meghan added, "I really tried to adopt this British sensibility of a ‘stiff upper lip.' I really tried, but I think that what that does internally is probably really damaging."

HARRY'S GAMES

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday morning, Harry showed up late at the Honourable Artillery Company in London to attend the launch of the British team soon heading off to the next Invictus Games for the most relatable reason … traffic!

He was extraordinarily apologetic and dove right in. The Games are a global sporting event leveraging the "power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider-understanding and respect of all those who serve their country."
