There is an astonishing-even-to-us amount of anti-Meghan craziness on social media and a whole bunch of shady-as-shit low-rent media outlets this week. And it should be noted that a significant number of royal reporters and pundits in the UK have also spent their time drumming up clicks and viewership by scrutinizing her every move (quite literally because there is nothing more pathetic in journalism than relying on “body language experts” for your story) and then criticizing her for making them talk about her. To our somewhat experienced Meghan-watching eyes, it feels like the fervor against her has reached alarming proportions. We can kind of understand or expect why it would spike at the time of their docu-series or when they briefly reunited with the family at the Queen’s funeral, but they are off doing their own thing, for a cause that is inarguably good and dear to his heart. The only attention they’re seeking is the kind they’re supposed to be seeking as celebrity patrons of any cause. In other words, everyone told them to go and get a job if they didn’t want to be royals and that’s exactly what they’re doing. We’re bringing this up for two reasons: at this point, it would be a little irresponsible not to and also because she’s very clearly dressing in a way that doesn’t draw too much attention to herself, even as scores of rabid commenters insist that she’s making everything about herself.
There’s all this chatter about how she’s treating this like a fashion show and bitches, she’s in a beige Zara romper and a pair of flat sandals. She hasn’t worn a single color all week. Get a grip on yourselves. We have never agreed with her approach of wearing all neutrals all the time as a way of countering any criticism about attention seeking. First, the highest-ranking female members of the royal family have been using fashion and bold colors to stand out during their engagements since the advent of color television. Second, wearing neutrals and relatably affordable brands like Zara and J. Crew have clearly done nothing whatsoever to lessen or counter any charges of being attention-seeking or grandiose. People – some with regular platforms on some of the biggest media outlets in the world – are simply going to make up whatever they want about her, even when she’s just supporting her husband’s passion and doing the work of being a celebrity philanthropist and charity patron. Fuck ’em and wear red, Meghan.
