BREAKING NEWS: Meghan Markle under fire for 'FAKING' her pregnancy
This is gaining traction all over the internet
Editor / March 25 2019
Vile trolls have bombarded royal social media with hurtful allegations that Meghan Markle is ‘faking’ her pregnancy.
Trolls have been posting abuse using a number of hashtags, notably #fakepregnancy and #moonbump, with several Instagram users posting multiple abusive messages a day.
Last month, the royals issued new guidelines about “courtesy, kindness and respect” from social media followers of Meghan and the Royal Family.
Anyone who doesn’t abide by the guidelines and who trolls the royal faces being blocked and their comments will be deleted.
But over the last few days, there are hundreds of new posts accusing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of faking the whole pregnancy.
Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, who married Prince Harry at St George’s Chapel, Windsor on May 19, 2018, is expecting a baby, in April.
But, online bullies are refusing to accept she is even pregnant.
One posted a series of photographs to the #moonbump hashtag intended to cast doubt on whether Meghan is actually pregnant, adding: “She is wearing #moonbump!
“Her tummy was deflated and then swollen again as she moves around. Im a mother of 2.
“No 6-months pregnant women still can do squatting and stand up smoothly (even they are yogis) and still wearing high heels.”
Another added, “All the newspapers are making ever so subtle digs... Come on be brave!! She's dying her hair, still having fillers and BOTOX because she's got a #surrogate #moonbump and this #fakepregnancy puts Beyonce and Amal to shame! Tell the truth!!!”
The palace has NOT reacted to the outrageous allegations online, but it is doubtful Meghan will be seen in public from now until the baby is born as she goes on her maternity leave from royal duties.
