Ever since the Duchess of Sussex became a part of the British royal family, she has been the target of various tabloids and the media. Any information and opinions shared about Meghan Markle, which are primarily negative get readily accepted by social media warriors. Even her accent is sometimes criticized. Although she is American, there have been moments where Markle seemed to have tried using the English accent while addressing the British public, however, all she received were harsh criticisms.
And once again, Markle was trolled, following the latest episode of her podcast Archetypes. Some listeners are not happy with Markle’s apparent attempt at a British accent calling it ‘pathetic’.
Meghan Markle was Heavily Criticized for trying to do a British accent
In the latest episode of her podcast Archetypes, Meghan Markle sat down with guest Jameela Jamil. Some people believe that while greeting Jamil, the Duchess of Sussex, tried to say it in a British style. Following that, tons of social media users and the English press alike harshly criticized her for a simple ‘ello’.

At the beginning of the podcast, Jamil who is British greeted Markle with an ‘Ello’ (British way of saying ‘Hello’). Markle then reciprocated the greeting with “Ello. Hello, my friend. How are you doing?”
Although later it was revealed that Markle’s was ‘ello’ probably an editing issue and that she actually did not utter the word, it still did not stop the haters from criticizing the Duchess of Sussex. Referring to the ‘ello’, some took to Twitter and claimed it was a ‘Pathetic attempt’ from Markle’s side. One user tweeted,
Aside from this, many others also used harsh words against Markle. Also, back in 2018, while on a trip with the late Queen Elizabeth II, Markle was criticized once again. At the time, a CNN reporter said referring to Markle’s speech,
“Strictly speaking, for someone in Britain, it’s not British yet. It’s not. But it is on the way.”
Overall, the whole podcast since it started has been hated. One tweeted,

Amid all this hate and criticism, supporters of the Duchess have also come up with tweets to defend her.
Instead of telling her to shut up you should be sympathetic to all the racist behavior she has had to endure in the palace. I wonder what a better place this world would be if we used kindness and compassion on social media rather then shut up! 🥰

I will never see Brits in the positive light I had always seen them. They have been racist and cruel to this young lady. Wow. Shameful, Brits.
