Chrissy Teigen has defended Meghan Markle with a devastating message to the Duchess of Sussex’s critics ahead of her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey this weekend.
Markle has come under intense scrutiny in recent weeks over her decision to speak publicly about why she and Prince Harry left their royal duties last year and moved away from the UK.
In a post on Twitter, Teigen said that the coverage of the Duchess of Sussex was “hitting too close to home” and issued a stark warning about protecting the actor’s health.
“this meghan markle s*** is hitting too close to home for me,” she wrote.
“these people won’t stop until she miscarries. f****** stop it.”

Teigen lost a pregnancy in September 2020 and shared a personal essay on her experience of the miscarriage soon after.
In February 2021, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they were expecting their second child later this year.
It came after Markle revealed in an article for the New York Times that she had a miscarriage in July 2020.
“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” she wrote in the article.
The actor added: “Yet despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning.”
Teigan also wrote about her experience last month – which was when her due date was expected to have been.
“He would have been here any day now - if he were like Luna and Miles [her other children], I’d probably be holding him as we speak,” she wrote on Instagram.
She added: “This month is a rough reminder and to be honest, I thought the worst was over but I guess life and emotions aren’t on any sort of schedule.”
