However, there were also people who supported the former ‘Suits’ actress. One person tweeted: “Meghan Markle wore a black version of the cape dress she wore to the Queen’s birthday, a black version of the hat she wore to the Queen’s Jubilee and the pearl and diamond studs were a gift from the Queen. Her whole look today revolved around the Queen. Talk about being thoughtful.” Another person added, “I really feel for Meghan Markle, I can’t imagine how hard it must be for her to be there for her husband while also dealing with her own trauma to be in this toxic environment again. Like she’s handling everything with class and dignity, but I still want her out of there.”
