Actress Meghan Markle has urged fans to lead by example after suffering weeks of criticism for her relationship with Prince Harry.
Markle, 35, and Prince Harry, 32, have been publicly dating since early November after an official statement by Kensington Palace confirmed the rumours.
The actress has been a target of varying abuse on social media for the romance as members of the public seemingly reject her as a suitable candidate. Criticism and outright hate directed towards Markle has grown so extreme that even Kensington Palace released a statement in regards to her her safety.
“Prince Harry is worried about Ms Markle’s safety,” it read.
Markle who has been largely quiet on social media since news broke, shared a message with fans on Friday that urged them to “be the change they wish to see.”
