Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex and wife of Prince Harry, has delivered a speech which the Daily Mirror suggests might have been her taking a swipe at her mother-in-law the Queen of England.
According to the newspaper, Meghan delivered these remarks in a pre-recorded video address Girl Up 2020 Leadership Summit, telling her audience that she wants to “share something” with them.
"It’s that those in the halls and corridors and places of power, from lawmakers and world leaders to executives, all of those people, they depend on you more than you will ever depend on them. And here’s the thing: they know this", she said. "They know that all of you, at a younger age than any modern comparison, are setting the tone for an equitable humanity. Not figuratively, literally. This is a humanity that desperately needs you".
She also mentioned the need to "drown out the noise" of negative voices and speak out "even when it makes others feel uneasy", the newspaper adds.
"Another thing about those lawmakers and leaders and executives I mentioned earlier. Now many of them, better or worse, they don’t listen until they have to because the status quo is easy to excuse and it’s hard to break", Meghan added. "But it will pull tightest right before snapping".
A number of social media users took a dim view of Meghan's rhetoric, mocking and criticizing her online.
