Published 10/20/2022, 10:00 AM EDT

Queen Elizabeth II breathed her last on September 08 at the Balmoral Castle in Scotland and things have only gotten difficult for Meghan Markle since then. For the past month, the Duchess of Sussex has been subjected to extensive trolling and criticism. Royal experts and monarchists have been recalling all the incidents where the Queen was hurt by Meghan’s actions.

The royal family also sidelined Meghan Markle during the state funeral and service. Kate Middleton was caught giving a cold stare to the former American actress on one of the occasions. Meanwhile, Meghan and her husband Prince Harry were also pushed to the second row during the funeral. They were also uninvited from certain important events during their stay in the United Kingdom. Following a month of all the backlash and criticism, the Sussex woman finally expressed her views on the late monarch.
