Since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made their final public appearance before their royal exit becomes official on March 31, 2020, a British journalist, Victoria Mather, shared her views on their departure.

Victoria, who has worked for Vanity Fair and The Telegraph, didn't hold back in sharing her frustrations with what she considered to be "disrespectful" towards the royal family's protocol.

"Meghan Markle, who many people consider as only, you know, five clicks up from trailer trash, has actually tried to disrespect the Queen."

In Harry's final speech before reuniting with his family, who has been in Canada when he made the announcement about their exit, he addressed the role the media had played in the decision to step down as a royal.

Harry recalled how his mother Princess Diana faced similar attacks and he explained his need to protect his family from what he experienced growing up in the spotlight.
