Kate criticized the silence about Meghan
Kate Middleton has faced criticism from Meghan Markle fans after she failed to publicly address Meghan’s claims about mental health in the royal family.
On Friday, Kate was unveiled as the Royal Patron of the Maternal Mental Health Alliance. The Duchess said: “It is therefore crucial that all those who may be struggling have the right support at the right time.”
But some royal fans slammed the Duchess of Cambridge for not publicly addressing Meghan’s comments about her pregnancy experiences, when she told Oprah Winfrey last year that she had suicidal thoughts before Archie was born in 2019.
The Duchess of Sussex told Oprah: “I went to the facility and said I had to go somewhere to get help, that I’ve never felt like I had to go anywhere before.
“And I was told I couldn’t do it, that it wouldn’t be good for the institution.”
In response to the Duchess of Cambridge’s Twitter announcement, Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu: “Agree Duchess Kate when Meghan Markle was having suicidal thoughts/needed mental health support during her pregnancy, why didn’t she receive ANY from the royal family?”
Another person wrote: “Right. It’s fine unless it’s your family. In that case protect the image at all costs.”
And a third responded to the announcement with a picture of Meghan during pregnancy with the comment: “Where was your support then?”
