Considering how much backlash and judgement Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle gets just for ... existing, really, it should come as a surprise to absolutely no one in the entire world that the judgement didn't stop when she became a mom. Meghan and Prince Harry welcomed baby Archie in May of this year, and since then she's kept a pretty low profile! We love that Meghan took a maternity leave to settle into motherhood and bond with her son - we wish every single mother in the world got that same opportunity, it's so incredibly important. But now that Archie is four months old, she's slowly getting back to her duties as Duchess of Sussex. And we've missed her! But, things are different now - Meghan is a mom now! So pretty much everything she does is revolves around that role. Last week, Meghan was on the red carpet for the launch of her Smart Works capsule collection, which is a curated collection of attire and accessories to help unemployed women return to the workforce. While on the red carpet, Meghan made a VERY mom comment about Archie, and like clockwork, the haters came out in droves.
In the clip from the event, Meghan says she had to go after speaking with reporters because Archie was probably hungry, and it was time to feed him. Totally innocuous and normal, right? We've all had to skeedaddle from something when our baby needed a fill-up. But of course, people just can't leave well enough alone when it comes to Meghan Markle.
Who has been feeding her "baby" while she was jetting across the Atlantic to watch a tennis match? Just wondering...— Deplorable Mary 🇨🇦 (@May21222) September 12, 2019
Maybe, just maybe, Archie came with her? Crazy, we know! It's not like the host of the US Open would have made available a quiet, cool room for Archie and the nanny to chill in while Meghan supported her BFF, Serena Williams.
The poor thing will be shocked to see her, isn’t there a tennis tournament somewhere that she should be at?— Sudge (@sudge_24) September 12, 2019
No, totally, Archie probably has no idea who she even is! Babies have the attention span of a gnat and forget a face as soon as it's out of their line of sight, that's how it works, right?
But Chris, he didn’t need her attention last weekend?— Remoulade Sauce (@Remisagoodboy) September 12, 2019
This shining example of humanity clearly doesn't understand that you can program babies to only need you every OTHER weekend. Duh. She turned off his needs last week!
It's easy to joke about the absurdity of it all, but when you really think about it, Meghan Markle is really between a rock and a hard place. If she locked herself in her home with Archie and never ventured out again, she'd be reamed for it. Go to a tennis match or walk the red carpet at her own event? Reamed for it. People have way too much damn time on their hands, is what.
