January has been a long one for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following the announcement that they are resigning from the royal family, so they could be financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen, as they agreed to split their time between Britain and North America.
This news rubbed most shoulders the wrong way and many were quick to react to it. From popular tabloids, describing the Sussexes’ plans to move as vague and not something that Canada can allow, a local newspaper blatantly declaring that Canada is it is not open to anyone looking to get out of Britain while remaining a royal, to a porn website offering Meghan a job, social media was wild with the Sussexes fire.
However, someone thought long and hard, after putting himself in Meghan’s tight shoes. All those moments of being racially discriminated for being the first black woman in the royal family and paparazzi twenty-four hours a day into her space. He must have thought why not make a word for a person who is tired of being treated as an outsider and decides to get the hell out?
So came the verb, ‘to Meghan Markle’ meaning ‘to value yourself and your mental health enough to up and leave a room/ situation/ environment in which your authentic self is not welcomed or wanted.’
