Meghan Markle has made numerous tabloid headlines since the former Hollywood star married Prince Harry. However, the Duchess of Sussex never seems to be bothered by any of this. She has always been vocal and never hesitated to share her opinion. Markle launched her own podcast Archetypes in August 2022. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also set to appear in their upcoming docuseries which will release next month on Netflix.
Although it may have seemed like she never needed any support, Markle’s long-time friend Gloria Steinem has got her back. The feminist activist has recently talked about her friendship with the Suits star and praised her for her gentle heart and kindness.

Gloria Steinem Says Meghan Markle is a Great Human Being
In a recent interview with People, Gloria Steinem talked about her relationship with the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle. When she was asked about her collaboration with Markle on a Vogue article about reproductive rights, Steinem praised the Duchess by calling her a “great human being.”
She also claimed that Markle is nothing like how she is portrayed in the media. “I’m not an expert on the media, but it seems to me that she is different from the picture of her in the media,” Gloria Steinem said. She also called the Duchess smart, and funny and said that she is devoted to social issues.
“Maybe it’s the British tabloids that are the problem,” Steinem added joking. The duo collaborated earlier this year on Vogue. They talked about the overturning of Roe v. Wade and shared how they met for the first time.
Gloria Steinem also recently supported Amber Heard. The activist signed the open letter in defense of Amber Heard. The open letter is available on several social media platforms and asks everyone to end online harassment. However, the support did not go well with people after an activist like Steinem supported Amber Heard.
