That Meghan Markle is a full blown sociopath. She has done nothing but tear that family and her own apart. She saw a wimp with mental issues and took advantage of him. She did what all sociopaths love to do and that is go to the media before anyone in the Royal family knew anything about it. They should have never let her into that family she was a prostitute on Epstein's Island and has caused trouble for the Royal family from day one sticking her tongue out at the cameras stealing money for her mom, she even threw hot tea on a women and the Royal family had to apologize and pay to get them out of that mess. She's a sick person and a dirty s**t always in dirty clothes she is GROSS! Glad she is OUT! Oh and there is no baby!
