Meghan Markle is being mocked by Royal fans online after an awkward statement she made. She said that women should be “linked not ranked” during an interview with feminist and author Gloria Steinem. Their discussion with one another focused on “representation, why each vote matters and how all women ‘are linked, not ranked.’”
It was the use of a Royal title next to a statement such as this that many Internet users questioned and even mocked. “‘All women aren’t ranked’… yet still uses the title,” someone writes. One Twitter user actually saw this as a dig at the Royal Family. “Women linked not ranked. Def a dig.” They added, “But coming from Duchess Meghan ya gotta laugh.”
Meghan Markle’s awkward statement leads to mocking and questioning
Another fan adds, “Isn’t using her title for this implying her rank though.” One more says, “It’s not a great look to have the main quote from the interview be about women being ‘linked not ranked,’ and be referred to by your literal rank.”
Others said that the use of the Royal title undermines Meghan’s calls for equality of the sexes. “But why try talking about being equal when HRH Megs insists on using a title of hierarchy on every occasion while pretending she’s one of us,” someone asks. Another says, “In that case why is Meghan using her rank? Seems hypocritical. Also, pure coincidence that Meghan & Gloria are signed to the same speaking agency I’m sure.”
Those in higher-up positions will soon be able to talk more openly about topics close to their heart

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA

Both Steinem and the Duke and Duchess are represented by the speaking agency Harry Walker. The agency is currently helping to organize events to allow the Royals to discuss topics that they are passionate about. “The conversations will relate to topics that are important in their lives — and in the world,” they tell Town & Country Magazine.
“Topics will largely relate to the social issues the world is facing now including racial justice and gender equity, mental health, issues impacting women and girls and the environment — as well as the intersectional nature of these issues”.
