They are already startlingly alike in looks – but now Prince Harry’s girlfriend Meghan Markle and Royal sister-in-law Pippa Middleton are starting to sound alike too.

The actress moonlights as a blogger and offers ‘mantras’ of a type not seen since Miss Middleton recommended putting water in the freezer to make ice.

Miss Markle breathlessly describes her lifestyle website The Tig, named after her favourite wine, as a ‘breeding ground for ideas and excitement for an inspired lifestyle’.

The Fail has a lot of gall critiquing anyone's writing quality. In writing an article bashing the pot, the kettle has shown zero self-awareness.

You and me both!

Hopefully her already public persona will provide a bit of personal armour against the gaping masses!

On one hand it's a shame she's having to live in a state of hyper awareness and possibly paranoia. On the other hand, it's good she's getting a taste of what the fishbowl life is like. This way she can make an educated choice on whether she can handle a future with Harry. It would be much worse if she was treated with kid gloves during their courtship, then was suddenly thrown to the media wolves after joining the BRF. That might be a recipe for a very short-lived marriage.

This is trial by fire, and if she can't stand the heat she'll get out of the kitchen. Add a few extra clichés.

Actress Meghan Markle is reportedly willing to do whatever it takes to make her relationship with Prince Harry work.


The Suits star (35) has been dating the 32-year-old royal for six months and while the long distance has been a strain, they're keen to make it work.

Markle films in Canada for the hit US legal drama and Harry is at the end of a two-week tour of the Caribbean. With the festive season in full swing, the actress will reportedly spend Christmas with her family in Los Angeles and fly to London after.

She is said to be "head over heels" for her new beau and is willing to drop her schedule in order to make it work.

The tabs are desperate for some sightings and news on this relationship.

We'll she does give it to them if you see her last Instagram. If she really didn't want attention she would be off social media or at least not posting photos that will bring out the trolls.
So I think all the attention isn't worrying her

I don't think the attention is bad until it's abusive. She has a social media life established before the relationship. She can't just shut it down. Her professional life requires her to be on social media.

The media should leave her alone. Just don't overstep the mark with her.

No it doesn't plenty of actors aren't on social media. She doesn't need to post photos that will bring headlines because of their content. She's playing games with the media.

Prince Harry: Relationship Suggestions and Musings 2016

My last say about it for the day. Some of her "fans" on insta are posting pretty nasty things about Kate might be a good idea for her to block them.

Lets face it. The only way Meghan is going to be absolutely able to avoid the media and headlines and the gazillion of gawkers that follow her on social media since the news broke that she is dating Harry is to lock herself away in a convent in a remote rural village somewhere in France and preferably an order that doesn't allow contact with the outside world.

I'm sure she could find herself a nice nun habit in wardrobe.

I think if and when there is PR that is needed, I'm assuming that Meghan has an agent for that. The social media sites are her personal ones.

Younger actors are on social media. She have a group of fans out there and she interact with her fans through her social media.

Remember, she already have a media profile before it was officially known that she's in a relationship with Harry. No one should be wanting her to now shut her life down because she's dating him. She have her life to live and people shouldn't have a problem with it. This is her life.

I would suggest people stop following her on social media just because she's dating Harry. If you're a fan of her work as an actress and admire her philanthropy work, that's all different.

Other than the bannana the stuff she posts is what she always posts. Even the dog picture, if you look back in 2015 you will find the same union jack dog jumper. She has yet to say one word publically about Harry and I'm sure Harry is ok with her social media presence afterall this tour has relied heavily on social media even more than before. Maybe its the Meghan effect on their social media presence.

To even suggest, that she's supposed to close down all social media because she's dating Harry is crazy. They're not engaged, they have not been seen together, but she has to change her life around just because she's dating Harry. Crazy.

Someone commented on the daily fail comments section, that if the paparazzi bothered her, she should do her shopping online. And she's attention seeking going out in the first place.

agreed. Social media is a reality. You will be hard pressed to find a celebrity today who doesn't have it. Well anyone under seventy and betty white probably does. The days when you could rely on an agent to get interviews and events and that was enough ate long gone. Even royals are seeing the power of social media. People thinking she should delete her accounts and blog, are loving a decade ago. She shouldn't have to sacrifice her career for a new relationship.

there are so many actors with social media accounts from young to old. It is the new normal as many actors now tweet their fans while their show is on. Meghan is not doing anything out of the ordinary, it is the new normal.

If you are being harassed as she was ( Harry told us she was )the first thing she would be told would not be on social media for a while.
I'm not living a decade ago I know the world is on line myself included.
A photo of her dog in a jumper with a Union Jack on it is going to bring a lot more followers and trolls ( I know she put a similar photo up a long time ago so why do it again now )with it comes the terrible replies and Kate is dragged into. If you think the comments on the daily mail are bad the ones on personal accounts on line are worse. She will have gotten a lot more followers than pre Harry and lot more bullying trolls her choice but then you can't complain. You invite people into your life

You are living a decade ago if you think she can just disappear. Shopping online and closing social media will do nothing but cause the media to go crazy looking for her. She has a career and it relies on her public image.

Wake up. Celebrity fans live On social media. They live to ge pictures of dogs and turkey sandwich hints. The more followers, the more likely she is to say get other jobs, helps her profile. Asking her to disappear is asking her to destroy her career prospects for a brand new relationship. Unlike Kate who was willing to not to work and wait around for years, Meghan has a career and her other activities to think of and not simply Harry.

If I remember correctly, Harry mentioned racial undertones, harassing her mother, and trying to break into her home. If she gets racist abuse on social media, of course it should be called out.

Many actors promote themselves through social media, it's part of today's pop culture. Harry, or anyone, would be out of line to even suggest that she shut it down for a few month long relationship. A relationship, that many people don't even think will last, but she should change her life around for it anyway.

It also sounds awfully like victim blaming to tell her what she has to change, so she won't get harassed. She has done nothing wrong, she shouldn't have to change.

We all know, that if this relationship lasts, they get engaged etc, she will have to do huge changes in her life, closing her social media down being one of the minor changes. But to demand she change already, 6 months or so into the relationship is just not right.
