People recall the previous statements by Meghan Markle regarding her school life

Meghan Markle’s complaints about the stereotypes she faced in school did not go well with a lot of people. Amidst the criticism, her interview from 2017 with Craig Ferguson resurfaced, where the former American actress proudly revealed Nutmeg as one of her nicknames. In the interaction, Markle seemed absolutely okay with the Catholic school girl stereotype. She defended her nickname, Nutmeg, in the interview by mentioning that it was a hilarious way to call her craziness.

In the 11th episode, the Sussex royal carried out a proper investigation on the difference between the troops for girls in school in her generation and the current lot. Following her visit to her school, Meghan Markle indulged in a conversation with three recent pass-outs of the Immaculate Heart High School. The three girls, Abigail, Diana, and Grace, openly discussed how the b-word is used as a way to demean women and pull them back.

Notably, it was a few episodes back that Markle had discussed the stigma around the b-word. Further, the Duchess asked the three Immaculate alums about their thoughts regarding the bimbo label. The response Markle received was quite shocking, as the girls informed her that, until very recently, bimbo was not considered something negative.
