Meghan Markle will now be able to use the “very powerful voices” on her side outside the Royal Family in the US, according to a commentator. The Duchess of Sussex’s friends and former colleagues have been emerging to defend her against intense scrutiny and negative onslaught. ITV Royal Rota podcast host Chris Ship detailed the “new escalation in this war of words”.

He told listeners: “Meghan’s got some very powerful voices.

“Mostly her American friends, of course.

“She is speaking to an American audience as well.

“I think they will be much more receptive to these views than perhaps people in the UK.”

Mr Ship continued: “Gayle King spoke about the texts and emails that exist to back up everything Meghan said to Oprah.

“Janina Gavankar said as much last week.

“It’s kind of like a new escalation in this war of words.

“Given that Meghan’s friends feel that they are now free to speak is this how the PR campaign is going to go forward from here?”

The Duchess had revealed during her Oprah interview that those close to her had been instructed not to speak by the Palace.

She said: “Everyone in my world was given very clear directive, from the moment the world knew Harry and I were dating, to always say, ‘No comment’. That’s my friends, my mum and dad. And we did.

“I did anything they told me to do — of course I did, because it was also through the lens of, ‘And we’ll protect you’.”

However, since leaving the monarchy, especially in the run-up to and aftermath of the Oprah interview, supporters have been coming out in droves.

Tennis star Serena William tweeted: “Meghan Markle, my selfless friend, lives her life – and leads by example – with empathy and compassion. She teaches me every day what it means to be truly noble. Her words illustrate the pain and cruelty she’s experienced.”

Former First Lady Michelle Obama told NBC News: “I feel like that was heartbreaking to hear. As I said before, race isn’t a new construct in this world for people of colour, and so it wasn’t a complete surprise to hear her feelings and to have them articulated.”

Suits co-star, Patrick J Adams, wrote: “It sickened me to read the endless racist, slanderous, click baiting vitriol spewed in her direction from all manner of media across the UK and the world but I also knew that Meghan was stronger than people realized or understood and they would regret underestimating her.

“Find someone else to admonish, berate and torment. My friend Meghan is way out of your league.”
