The Royal Family’s Reaction to Report
Apart from the action taken by Kensington palace the royal family in light of the Hope not Hate report has released a list of guidelines for people to follow while posting material online regarding them or other people. Anyone who breaches the guidelines will be subjected to police action.
The guidelines came as a result of an increase in the online abuse against Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge which was mostly sexist.
Why is Meghan Markel the Target of Such Hatred?
According to experts usually, when people think of royalty or a Dutch’s, in this case, they tend to picture a white person with British royal background or decent. Even though Meghan who is now royal by marriage, defies or contradicts all the general norms. She’s an American national who was born to an immigrant family and is of mixed descent
The contradiction of these general norms may have unintentionally invited this rude and disrespectful reaction from the people.
