Duchess Meghan has endured all kinds of awfulness throughout her royal life, everything from racism to classism. Particularly lately, and particularly on social media. Now, if you are a normal human being with a heart and conscience who knows what it means to be kind, then you probably just keep scrolling past the vile, derogatory stuff — which means you likely haven’t heard the latest conspiracy theory surrounding Meghan. There are people out there who — wait for it — believe she is faking her pregnancy.
Apparently there are hashtags like #moonbump and #megxit on the various social platforms that will turn your stomach, so if you feel like taking a trip down a rabbit hole and landing in some seriously disgusting poop, click away. Just don’t do it while you’re eating, or shortly after, because you might throw up your lunch.
Here is just a sampling of what some confused individuals truly believe — including “photographic proof” of what they see as Meghan tricking us into believing she is carrying Prince Harry‘s heir.

Many call us haters. I always observe, what i see here is… this is not normal behavior. When Meghan visit to The Mayhew Animal Home in Kensal Green, you see that Meghan was able to perfectly bent very down! Without the help from anyone! #MeghanMarkle #DuchessOfSussex pic.twitter.com/P6hHm3MVqk

Damning evidence? Not quite. In fact, there are two words that can explain everything: Pregnancy. Spanx. When she’s out and about and wearing fancy dresses to various events, she has to find the best, most comfortable way to do it. Right now, she might prefer wearing her granny panties to everything else, but is also aware that we don’t need to see them. Hence, the most magical invention for pregnant women who want to keep it all in while supporting and smoothing those not-so-flattering areas. Spanx very much.
Also? Babies shift positions when they’re in their mamas so if she’s not carrying the same way ALL THE TIME, chalk that up to Baby Sussex kicking and punching and swimming around in there.
This offensive BS happened with Angelina Jolie, Beyoncé and Amal Clooney, so it shouldn’t be too surprising that it’s happening to Meghan. While most people simply take joy in new life entering the world, there are others who want to tarnish that. And in Meghan’s case, apparently she’ll never be English enough, young enough and white enough for Harry.
In an attempt to keep the trolls at bay and the online bullying to a minimum, The Royal Family (a.k.a. the motherf*cking Queen) — as well as Clarence House and Kensington Palace — have issued a statement, in what we can only presume is in response to the monsters abusing members of the BRF, cough, cough, Meghan. The gist? “Show courtesy, kindness and respect.”

Inappropriate comments that breach the guidelines will be hidden or deleted, and users may be blocked. In addition, those extra hateful monsters could be investigated if they cross the line.
Finally, something is being done and we suppose it’s a way to help make the online world a little bit nicer, but the new regulations only help with the royals’ official social media channels. The hate will continue via other avenues. At this point, though, we’ll take anything positive. And this is definitely a good start.
