Hilary Clinton Slams UK Press for being ‘Cruel’ towards Meghan

Listen Now

Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is an American politician, diplomat, lawyer, writer, and public speaker who served as the 67th United States secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, as a United States senator from New York from 2001 to 2009, and as First Lady of the United States from 1993 to 2001. Clinton, 73, made the comments during a live event with the Washington Post. She called Harry and Meghan’s Sunday interview with Oprah ‘heart-rendering’.

Hillary Clinton says the ‘cruelty’ the British press showed to Meghan was ‘outrageous’ and slams the Royals for failing to support a ‘young woman who was just trying to live her life’.

The former Secretary of State made the comments during a live event with the Washington Post on Monday, a day after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive interview with Oprah aired on CBS.

‘I found it so heart-rending to watch,’ Clinton said, adding that she had met the pair before, as well Harry’s mother, Princess Diana

Clinton then said it was ‘heartbreaking’ to watch the ‘incredible accomplished’  Markle be ‘not fully embraced’ not only by the ‘permanent bureaucracy that surrounds the royal family, but by the media in the UK.’

The former presidential hopeful said she too is no stranger to facing off with the British press, adding: ‘I’ve had my time in the box with the British tabloids, as anybody who is in the public eye has had, and their cruelty in going after Meghan was just outrageous.

‘The fact she did not get more support that the reaction was, you know, “let’s just paper it over and pretend it didn’t happen or it will go away, just keep your head down”—well, this young woman was not going to keep her head down.

‘You know, this is 2021 and she wanted to live her life, she wanted to be fully engaged and she had every right to hope for that,’ Clinton added.
