Meghan Markle has come in for more than her fair share of criticism since joining the British royal family last year, and I'm not referring to the crap coming from her publicity-hungry father and half-sister.
London tabloids and royal watchers alike delight in thinly-veiled racist and classist attacks portraying her as a conniving, social climbing American interloper. But the latest criticism of her to gain traction online is that she's faking her current pregnancy by wearing a "moonbump" prosthesis. The hashtag #DuchessofDeception is currently trending on Twitter.
Just a sample of the insanity:
Ι deeply dislike conspiracy theories but this pregnancy looks so fake. There is nothing wrong with using a surrogate or not being able to have kids BUT it is wrong to lie to so many peaple. Brits dont deserve this. #Megxit #moonbump #MeghanMarkle— Scarlet.P.Hudson (@ScarletPHudson) January 26, 2019
In addition to what you said, she is wearing 4 inch heels. The bulk, weight, and girth of a real baby would not accomadate this crouching and springing up behavior, without assistance. #moonbump— ❌The Random Tweeter❌ (@cliftonhfc1) February 18, 2019
THE ROYAL CAT IS out of the bag. Fears that Meghan is NOTpregnant but FAKING IT have hit the world this morning. The big question is Why would they lie about it? Where is the pressure from? #moonbump @tugengirl @Emmah017 #meghanmerkle #megxit?? pic.twitter.com/H3kmWHTRBc— Richard Kitheka (@goldfishpr) March 2, 2019

#Moonbump alert"! Sometimes it's flat, sometimes round, sometimes square, sometimes big, sometimes small, sometimes high, sometimes low, sometimes dented, sometimes lopsided. Hmm. Never seen anything like this before. https://t.co/Ued8JkSEiu— TeaLipstickCeleb (@CelebLipstick) February 24, 2019
There's even a "Moonbump Mountbatten Windsor" twitter account dedicated to the fake royal pregnancy, although it also branches out to general Meghan-hating:
#MeghanMarkle sure loves taking presents from the peasants! Look at her greedy face...cant make up her mind what to grab first! Greedy and oh so thirsty. #DuchessofDeception #CharlatanDuchess #MeghanMarkle #moonbump pic.twitter.com/V97tJf7nw2— Moonbump Mountbatten Windsor (@GiftedDirty) February 27, 2019
