The Duchess of Sussex marked National Mental Health Day this year with a podcast appearance about being trolled by social media users. The First Lady, when announcing her anti-bullying Be Best initiative in 2018, also took Trolls to task for attacks on her. Meghan has often criticised Donald Trump for sexism, with the President also attacking the Duchess recently.
Meghan and Prince Harry made an appearance on the podcast Teenager Therapy to mark National Mental Health Day.
During the chat, the Duchess discussed the negative comments she received online while a full-time royal and said: “I’m told that in 2019 I was the most trolled person in the entire world-male or female.
“Now eight months of that I wasn’t even visible. I was on maternity leave or with a baby but what was able to just be manufactured and churned out, it’s almost unsurvivable.
“That’s so big you can’t even think about what that feels like because I don’t care if you’re 15 or 25 if people are saying things about you that aren’t true what that does to your mental and emotional health is so damaging.”

In a surprising parallel, Meghan’s comments matched Mrs Trump’s in 2018.
The First Lady told ABC News she was the “most bullied person” while announcing her Be Best initiative.
She said: “I could say I’m the most bullied person on the world.”
When asked if she meant that, she clarified: “One of them, if you really see what people saying about me.”
