Not only are they discrediting her success, they are willing to drag her race and religion into it, as well as directing blame of mother-in-law's brooch on her (Sophie). The accusation of racism have been thrown tirelessly, which could have serious libel consequences.
How actress Sophie Winkleman married into the royal family . . . and survived
Not all actresses who join the Firm run off. Sophie Winkleman, who played Big Suze in the sitcom Peep Show, fell for the 49th in line to the throne. So how’s it going?
Let's not forget that Charles and Camilla were attacked whilst arriving at the Royal Variety Performance by car. The student protestors "racked windows and threw paint on the Rolls-Royce", even though the student fees vote lies solely on the government and parliamentary vote. Camilla later joked about the incident.

When Catherine married into the Royal Family, she was being criticised by modern feminist and republicans for "not having a career" and submissive to the "outdated, sexist" institution simply by following protocol.
I have never questioned that other members of the BRF get criticism on Twitter and elsewhere. They do.
However my beef over my last few posts on the subject was what about all the other married-in professionals of various sorts who married into other royal families in Scandinavia and Europe.
They weren't required by observers and keyboard warriors to have reached the very top of their professions before they married or were somehow beneath contempt for not getting there.
So why was Meghan supposed to have had to have been a Grace Kelly or else she was nothing? I happen to consider that a regular role in a TV cable show for seven years, earning her own money is praiseworthy in a profession where 92% are unemployed at any one time. Meghan has nothing to be ashamed of at all in pursuing a career in acting and working regularly in it.
