Meghan Markle’s inner circle is rallying around the duchess following claims of “bullying” and “harassment” from two former palace aides during her two-year tenure as a working royal.
Some of the duchess’s confidantes, including friends from college, producers from her time on Suits, and even her trusted makeup artist Daniel Martin have chimed in on social media sharing their favorite memories with Meghan and defending her character against what Meghan’s team is calling a “calculated smear campaign.”
One of Meghan’s friends from college, producer and author Lindsay Roth, shared two throwback images of the duchess on Instagram: one from Roth’s own wedding day and another from their college graduation at Northwestern University.
“Meg’s M.O. has always been kindness; goodwill runs in her bones. I know this to be true after 22 years of very close friendship. I have seen firsthand how she treats her friends and their families, and her colleagues,” wrote Roth in the caption. “If she’s driving with you in the passenger seat, she will fling her right arm in front of you at the slightest bump in a gesture of love to ensure your safety. If you have a specific goal, she will help you get there, and your passions will become hers on your behalf. If you ever have the pleasure of meeting Meg – and I hope more of you do – you will see the altruistic, magnanimous friend who I am so lucky to have in my corner.”
