Meghan Markle Has Been ‘Stressed’ by All the Drama

For Us Weekly’s new cover story, a “royal insider” (who?) told the publication, “Meghan has so much on her plate, between being pregnant and dealing with the public backlash, and she’s finding the whole situation incredibly stressful.” Beyond that, the portion of the report that was published online doesn’t really go into details about her frustration, other than to say that of course the nonstop rumors were getting to her.

The publication’s latest scoop falls in line with its December report that the duchess was frustrated that because of her position as a royal, she wasn’t supposed to speak out publicly against the rumors against her. Another “royal insider” (or the same one? Who knows!) told Us Weekly at the time:

“She’s always relied on her own voice to stand up for others, and for herself. So not being able to say anything is a debilitating feeling. She’s always been so independent, her entire life, and that’s all been taken away from her. She’s always been able to clap back on social media and now she can’t.”

In late November, news surfaced that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be moving to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, about 20 miles away from their current apartment at Kensington Palace, next door to Prince William and Kate Middleton. The first big difference? With Meghan and Harry in Windsor by the time of their baby’s birth sometime this spring (maybe even early spring), a Lindo Wing birth is unlikely. The public has seen Kate present her children shortly after their births at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, but Windsor is about an hour’s drive from the historic royal birthing suite. It may make more sense for Meghan to select a hospital closer to her, and Frimley Park Hospital, in Surrey, is about a 15-mile drive from their new home. Local Surrey publications are already getting excited at the prospect of the royal baby watch taking place in their area, but it’s not the first time. Prince Edward’s wife, Sophie Wessex, gave birth to her children, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, at Frimley Park; Louise was born premature in 2004. What do you all think?? Will Meghan and Harry opt for The Lindo Wing where Prince Harry was born? Or opt for a closer location to their new home in Windsor such as Frimley Park Hospital? 🤔
