Meghan Markle’s Suits co-star Patrick J Adams defends Duchess in emotional Twitter message
Meghan Markle‘s former Suits co-star actor Patrick J Adams has leapt to the Duchesses’ defence on Twitter in a string of powerful tweets. The actor who worked with Meghan “for the best part of a decade” is the latest in a handful of close friends to speak out in support of her.
Patrick J Adams tweeted: “Meghan Markle and I spent the better part of a decade working together on Suits.
“From day one she was an enthusiastic, kind, cooperative, giving, joyful and supportive member of our television family. She remained that person and colleague as fame, prestige and power accrued.
“She has always been a powerful woman with a deep sense of morality and a fierce work ethic and has never been afraid to speak up, be heard and defend herself and those she holds dear.
“Like the rest of the world, I have watched her navigate the last few years in astonishment.”
The actor even branded Meghan’s time as a senior royal “toxic”, writing: “She fell in love, moved to a new country, became a household name across the entire globe and began the difficult work of trying to find her place in a family dynamic that can at best be described as complicated and at worst, seemingly archaic and toxic.”
He added: “It sickened me to read the endless racist, slanderous, clickbaiting 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.”
J Adams claimed Meghan and Harry were “hunted” following the birth of their son Archie, writing: “And then they welcomed Archie.”
He added: “And on any sort of decent planet that would be a time to stop sharpening the knives and let these two people enjoy the magical early months and years of starting a family.
“But we don’t live on that planet and instead the hunt continued.”
The actor lashed out at the Royal Family and called accusations of bullying against Meghan “obscene”, writing: “It’s OBSCENE that the Royal Family, who’s newest member is currently GROWING INSIDE OF HER, is promoting and amplifying accusations of “bullying” against a woman who herself was basically forced to flea the UK in order protect her family and her own mental health.”
He went on: “IMO, this newest chapter and it’s timing is just another stunning example of the shamelessness of an institution that has outlived its relevance, is way overdrawn on credibility and apparently bankrupt of decency.”
On Wednesday Buckingham Palace announced it had launched an investigation following allegations of bullying made against Meghan by former royal staff.
The Buckingham Palace statement announcing the probe read: “We are clearly very concerned about allegations in The Times following claims made by former staff of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”
“Accordingly our HR team will look into the circumstances outlined in the article.
“Members of staff involved at the time, including those who have left the Household, will be invited to participate to see if lessons can be learned.
“The Royal Household has had a Dignity at Work policy in place for a number of years and does not and will not tolerate bullying or harassment in the workplace.”
Responding to the reports of bullying allegations in The Times, a Sussex spokesman said: “The duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma.
“She is determined to continue her work building compassion around the world and will keep striving to set an example for doing what is right and doing what is good.”
