On the topic of what could be the biggest problem facing teens…online bullying, Meghan Markle openly talked about a distinction of hers she would rather do without, which is being last year’s most trolled person in the entire world.
You could feel the emotion in Meghan’s voice as she said, “I can speak personally, too. I’m told that in 2019 I was the most trolled person in the entire world, male or female.” She went on saying, “Now 8 months of that [was when she was pregnant] I wasn’t even visible. I was on maternity leave or with a baby. But what was able to be manufactured and churned out, it’s almost unsurvivable.”
And for Harry, he talked on loss and grief, something which he knows all too well. He also obliquely touched on politics saying, “Vulnerability is not a weakness. Showing vulnerability in today’s world especially is a strength.” He added, “We can certainly see that more from some of our global leaders.”
“I don’t care if you’re 15 or you are 25 if people are saying things about you that aren’t true, what that does to your mental and emotional health is so damaging.” By this Meghan made it clear she was deeply affected by the negative comments.
