Suitsactor Patrick J. Adams has lashed out at the British royal family to defend his former colleague Meghan Markle. The actor finds it unpalatable that Buckingham Palace is investigating alleged bullying of his girlfriend. “A shameless action by an institute without any decency,” he tweeted.
Patrick and Meghan were seen together as Mike and Rachel in the law series for years. Markle was enthusiastic, friendly and cooperative from day one, he writes to his 541,000 followers. “She remained the same person and colleague as fame, prestige and power increased.”
“She has always been a strong woman with a strong sense of morality and an enormous zest for work and she was never afraid to speak up and defend herself and her loved ones,” he continues. “Like the rest of the world, I have watched in amazement as she endured the past few years.”
He describes how she fell in love with Prince Harry, moved to England and became famous all over the world in one fell swoop. “She faced the difficult task of finding her place in a family dynamic that is, more conveniently, complicated and, less conveniently, downright old-fashioned and toxic.”
He also saw that toxic atmosphere in the media. ‘I got sick of the endless racist, libelous, sour criticism that all kinds of media poured out on her. But I knew Meghan was stronger than many people think and that they would regret underestimating her. ‘
He hoped things would unfreeze after Meghan and Harry had their son Archie. “On a planet that is a bit decent, that would be a time to stop sharpening the knives and let these two people enjoy the initial period of building their families. But we don’t live on a planet like that. ‘
The “hunt” continued, he saw. Not just in the media, but even within Buckingham Palace itself. That is now investigating allegations of bullying from Meghan to the staff. It is obscene that the Royal Family, whose newest member is currently growing in its midsection, is now bolstering allegations of ‘bullying’ by a woman who, of course, was more or less forced to leave England to protect her family and mental health. ‘
He continues: “In my opinion, this new chapter and its timing is yet another example of the shamelessness of an institution that is no longer relevant, completely unreliable, and has not an ounce of decency.” Patrick closes with an appeal. Find someone else to admonish, swear and torment. My friend Meghan is way too good for you. ‘
Meghan is currently in the news worldwide, mainly because of the interview she and Harry gave to Oprah Winfrey, which will air on Sunday. The pair explains their departure from the United Kingdom, as well their farewell as members of the royal family.
