Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle is trending online again — but not because of her achievements, activism or acting. No, Prince Harry‘s wife is buzzing on social media because of her “skinny legs.” And this isn’t even the first time her gams have been slammed.
On Wednesday, Aug. 29, Meghan, 37, and Harry, 33, stepped out in London to attend a charity performance of Hamilton and, at the event, Meg flaunted her long legs in a tuxedo minidress. But instead of commenting on how gorgeous the royal looked, many people took to Twitter to criticze Meghan’s legs for being too thin.
“Meghan Markle needs a few burgers. Way too skinny,” one person wrote. A second hater similarly added, “Meghan Markle has some strange looking legs,” to which another person replied, “Yes, very skinny.
Earlier this year, Meghan’s legs were similarly slammed when she and Harry stopped by London’s Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in April to meet with delegates at the Commonwealth Youth Forum. During the outing, Meghan looked characteristically stylish in a white-and-black striped sleeveless dress by Altuzarra, a black blazer by Camilla and Marc, and shoes by Tamara Mellon. But apparently, the appearance of her legs sparked criticism online, just as they did a month before when she and Harry were photographed at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day.
“Do NOT let #MeghanMarkle wear [a] dress or skirt again,” one Twitter user wrote at the time, per Revelist. “Her legs are so [ugly], skinny, and shapeless.” Another person similarly added, “THOSE ARE SOME SERIOUS UGLY LOOKING LEGS.” And a third hater wrote, “Did Meghan Markle never walk as a child? They are seriously underdeveloped limbs.”
Sadly, these aren’t the only times that people have picked on the Meg’s appearance. In recent months, Meghan has also been criticized for putting her hair in a messy bun and for not wearing pantyhose, as AOL pointed out.
Even worse, the former Suits star has additionally been attacked over her mixed-race status ever since she and Harry became an item. “It’s disheartening,” she told BBC News in November 2017. “You know, it’s a shame that that is the climate in this world to focus that much on that or that that would be discriminatory in that sense, but I think… at the end of the day I’m really just proud of who I am and where I come from.” We hope Meghan can ignore the image-obsessed haters as much as she can dismiss the racist trolls. And perhaps the rest of us can focus on more important issues!
