I want Meghan’s daughter, my daughter and your daughter to live in a society that is driven by respect: Serena Williams supports Meghan Markle

“We must recognize our obligation to decry malicious, unfounded gossip and tabloid journalism. The mental health consequences of systemic oppression and victimization are devastating, isolating and all too often lethal,” she further added.

During her interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle opened up on the reports of her tiff with Prince William’s wife Kate Middleton. UK tabloids had reported that prior to Markle’s wedding there was an altercation between the two which left Middleton in tear. Markle however said that it happened the other way around. “A few days before the wedding [Kate] was upset about the flower girl dresses and it made me cry,” she said.

The 39-year-old former actor also revealed she had “suicidal thoughts” during her time at Buckingham. “That was a very clear and real and frightening thought… I couldn’t be left alone.”

Drawing parallels of their time at Buckingham Palace, to that of their mother, Prince Harry said, “I can’t begin to imagine what it must have been like for her, going through this process by herself, all those years ago.”
