In the wake of rampant rumors suggesting she’s feuding with her sister-in-law Kate Middleton and after facing attacks made by her father and other Markle family members, Princess Tessy Antony of Luxembourg has come to Meghan Markle‘s defense. The princess took to Twitter on Sunday, February 10 to speak about an op-ed piece posted by Royal Central defending the Duchess of Sussex, 37, against online criticism.
“Absolutely! No one deserves that. One should never assume. Either you know or be [quiet],” the 33-year-old wrote. “It’s not nice to talk badly about someone else just because one can, as he or she takes advantage of the anonymity of the web.”

The royal added, “Stay Kind!!! It’s the new cool! She does not deserve that.” Princess Tessy is no stranger to online criticism and faced a lot herself after she separated from her husband, Prince Louis of Luxembourg, in January 2017.
The sweet words from Princess Tessy came just one day before Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York opened up about her previously reported rivalry with her late sister-in-law, Princess Diana. To support the launch of Hello! magazine’s new #HelloToKindness campaign, Fergie penned an essay about the pros and cons of social media.
“Women, in particular, are constantly pitted against and compared with each other in a way that reminds me of how people tried to portray Diana and me all the time as rivals, which is something neither of us ever really felt,” Fergie, 59, wrote.
Just last week, Meg’s friends also came to her defense and spoke to People about who she truly is outside of the royal spotlight. The duchess’ close pals explained they chose now to open up about Meghan because they want to “stand up against the global bullying we are seeing and speak the truth about our friend.”
They also revealed that Meg has stayed genuine and sincere to herself since becoming British royalty after marrying Prince Harry in May 2018. “When you see her at walkabouts, when she crouches down to talk to the kids and genuinely has real conversations with people, that’s Meg,” her former costar said. “That’s how she crouches down with our kids at home. That’s how she plays with them. That’s how she engages with people and how she always has.”
The sudden outpouring of love for Meg doesn’t come as a total shock considering it was recently reported that the former Suits actress has been leaning on her friends for support while dealing with the criticism she’s faced. “Meghan just didn’t realize the scrutiny would feel as intense as it does, and over the last few weeks a reputation is building that she can be difficult,” a source told Closer UK. “While Harry‘s been a great support, she’s also been relying on her girlfriends — speaking and messaging with them daily and crediting them with helping her get through the past few months.” We hope Meghan starts feeling better before Baby Sussex arrives this spring!
