Following the death of the phenomenal "Justice of Courage," Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Meghan Markle, poured out her heart in a warming tribute to her.


Meghan Markle had the most awe-inspiring words to share as she honored the late Nistuce of the supreme court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who recently passed on.

In an official statement to People, Markle talked about how Ginsburg inspired her while writing on her impactful life and times.

The Duchess of Sussex called her a "true inspiration," and made it known that Ginsburg wielded an unforgettable legacy in the world of human and women's rights. Markle said in her tribute:

"With an incomparable and indelible legacy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg will forever be known as a woman of brilliance, a Justice of courage, and a human of deep conviction…"


The mom-of-one noted that she looked up to supreme court justice when she was a child while beckoning on citizens to honor and remember her as due. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, also known as the Notorious R.B.G, passed on last week after battling metastatic cancer.

Ginsburg was the second woman appointed to the supreme court, and her years as a litigator were nothing short of outstanding. The veteran justice died at the age of 87.

Ginsburg was appointed to her Supreme court position in 1993 by the then-president Bill Clinton, and now that she is late, her position is open for a successor.

However, there seems to be a bone of contention regarding Ginsburg's wishes to be replaced when a new president was elected. Presently, President Donald Trump's nominee is gearing for the voting exercise on the floor of the United States Senate.

In the wake of the liberal justice's death, notable politicians and celebrities have put up their tributes and farewell messages on social media.

Former President Barack Obama pointed out Ginsburg's exceptional efforts in seeing to the end of discrimination regarding women's rights and President Donald Trump referred to her as an amazing woman.

Entertainment mogul, Jennifer Lopez shared a post of her and the late legal personality on her Instagram page. Lopez admitted that she was heartbroken after hearing the news.

Lopez referred to Ginsburg as a "true champion of gender equality." More entertainers like Tyra Banks, Jennifer Aniston, Yara Shahidi, and Zoe Kravitz paid honors as well.
