London: Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, has claimed she is the “most trolled person in the world” and the effect on her health is “almost unsurvivable”.
The Duchess, interviewed by American teenagers for a podcast, said it was “so damaging” to mental and emotional health for anyone to have people “saying things about you that aren’t true”.
She said the trolling she suffered was “so big, you can’t even think of what that feels like”. Claiming she could “speak personally” about the detrimental effects of the digital world from being trolled in 2019, she also gave an insight into her candid interview in South Africa with ITV’s Tom Bradby in which she tearfully said “not many people have asked if I’m OK”.
Disclosing she was “exhausted” and breastfeeding son Archie at the time, she said she had no idea her comment would “resonate” with people around the world, adding: “I was in a moment of vulnerability, because I was tired, because there was no presentation. It was just, here’s where I am: I’m a mum with a four-and-a-half-month-old baby, and we are tired.”
