Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can never win in the eyes of some harsh critics. The former Suits actress is launching a fashion line with her friend, designer Misha Nonoo, to push her charity, Smart Works, which helps women land jobs.
Markle had this to say about the new project: “Sneak peek at the new Smart Works charity capsule collection shoot, ahead of the autumn launch. An initiative supporting the Smart Works collective which will equip women entering the work force with the key work wear essentials they need…coming soon.”
A critic shared this reaction: “Not a hater!! Megan, start by being humble! Your extravagant expenses are taking away the taxpayers money for your wealth.”
The person is not the only one to go after Markle this month.
Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage seems to have a thing or two to say about Prince Harry and his wife, and the way they have been campaigning for the environment recently.
His statements quickly diverted from that though, and turned into very personal attacks on certain people, such as the Queen Mother, whom he called an “overweight, chain-smoking gin drinker.”
Farage’s main issue seems to be the decision announced by the couple to only have two children, as a means of protecting the environment.
Farage added that the popularity of Prince Harry has deteriorated significantly after he was first spotted with Markle, and seemed to imply that she was having a negative influence on him and his political career.
He stated during a Conservative conference in Australia: “Here was Harry, here he was this young, brave, boisterous, all male, getting into trouble, turning up at stag parties inappropriately dressed, drinking too much and causing all sorts of mayhem. And then, a brave British officer who did his bit in Afghanistan. He was the most popular royal of a younger generation that we’ve seen for 100 years. And then he met Meghan Markle, and it’s fallen off a cliff.”
The controversial politician added: “We’ve been told in the last week that Meghan and Harry will only have two children… and we’re all completely ignoring, the real problem the Earth faces, and that is the fact the population of the globe is exploding, but no one dares talk about it, no one dares deal with it, and whether Prince Harry has two kids is irrelevant given there are now 2.6 billion Chinese and Indians on this Earth.”

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended #TheLionKing European premiere in London at the Odeon Theatre. In celebration of the film’s release, The Walt Disney Company announced #ProtectThePride, a global conservation campaign to support efforts protecting the rapidly diminishing lion population across Africa. As a part of their commitment to this cause, Disney also made a donation to The Duke of Sussex’s upcoming environment & community initiative which will be formally announced this autumn. The Duke and Duchess are committed to advancing conservation efforts across Africa and around the world, and working with communities to ensure a sustainable future for the planet. This evening Their Royal Highnesses had the pleasure of meeting the cast and creative team behind the film, as well as supporters of @africanparksnetwork, of which The Duke is President.

And while Farage is not the only one to disapprove of Markle, especially in public, the relationship between her and Prince Harry seems to be going quite well at the moment, all things considered.
The two have been making various successful attempts at improving the world around them, and they have been commended in various ways.
One of the people who seem to have something against their current relationship is quite important, though.
Queen Elizabeth has officially been supportive of things between Prince Harry and Markle, but behind closed doors, it is reportedly a different story.
The Queen might have some very serious concerns with the current state of their relationship, according to reports, and she has been very vocal about them in private, despite not saying much in public so far.
However, this is just speculation at this point.

Spotlight on: Smart Works We are proud to be supporting a very special initiative this autumn for @SmartWorksCharity! After quiet visits to Smartworks over the last year, The Duchess was moved by the impactful work being done by this non profit organisation that helps women into the workforce, equipping them with both the skills and clothes they need to feel job-ready. Throughout her visits she noticed that while the donations were plentiful, they were also notably a combination of mismatched items and colours which weren’t always the right stylistic choices or sizes that didn’t necessarily “suit” the job at hand: to make a woman feel confident and inspired as she walked into her job interview. As a result, launching this autumn, The Duchess will be supporting a collective to help equip the women of Smart Works with the key workwear essentials they need as they enter into the workplace. This initiative is supported by four generous brands who share the vision to empower the women of Smart Works to look and feel 💯 as they bravely venture in to what can often be a daunting environment for those who have been out of the job market. The brands have come together to work towards this united force for good, “[reframing] the idea of charity as community,” as The Duchess writes in a piece for this month’s British Vogue. They will follow the 1:1 model where an item from the collection purchased is an item shared with a woman of Smart Works because “not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story; it reminds us we are in it together.” For more information on how you can be part of another woman’s success story visit @smartworkscharity. Special thanks to: @JohnLewisandPartners, @MarksandSpencer, @MishaNonoo, @InsideJigsaw for supporting this very special organisation.
