However, it wasn’t long before trolls took to social media to criticise Meghan’s appearance.

Some people commented on her weight, with one troll viciously ‘fat-shaming’ her.

They cruelly wrote: “Wow she’s fat these days.”

A few others echoed similar views, with one person tweeting: “I am just surprised she has really put on weight around the waist.”

Within minutes, Meghan’s loyal fans leaped to her defence and slammed the trolls’ horrible comments.

One person said on Twitter: “Silly bitter comments, she had a baby only five months ago she is healthy happy and very beautiful full of life. Next.”

Another tweeted: “She looks good and beautiful.”

Hitting back at one troll, a third added: “She gave birth 5 months ago, that is only a bit of baby weight. Are you crazy?”

A fourth wrote: “She is gorgeous. There is nothing wrong with her body at all.”

Another loyal fan said: “Meghan is a definition of what freedom looks like, happy, beautiful and thriving.”

Meanwhile, it comes amid news that Meghan apologised to the High Court for ‘misleading’ them over her involvement in the Finding Freedom biography.
