Gabrielle Union took to Instagram to express her pride and support for former actress Meghan Markle following her and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey. She even shared a rare joint photo with the Duchess.


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's recent bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey aired over the weekend and was met with mixed reactions from fans and critics worldwide.

While some people have slammed the "Suits" actress for her actions and claims, fellow actress Gabrielle Union had only positive words of affirmation for Markle, which she shared on Instagram.

Union's heartfelt post came alongside a photo of herself and her husband, retired NBA player Dwyane Wade, posing for a photo with Markle at a Prada fashion show in 2015. The post was captioned:

"I hope we all continue to rally around women who dare to stand up for themselves and others. We see you, we support you, we got your back."

The photo, taken before Markle met Prince Harry, sparked much support from Union's fans. Over half a million people liked the picture, and several more left encouraging messages in the comments section.



Union's public message of support is one of many that Markle has received from celebrity friends and co-workers who have spoken up after she was accused of allegedly bullying and harassing two former palace aides.

Producer and author Lindsay Roth, makeup artist Daniel Martin, and her former "Suits" costar, Patrick J. Adams, are some of the celebs who took to social media and shunned those they believe have mistreated Markle.



Markle has been the subject of headlines ever since she and Prince Harry began dating. According to the "Horrible Bosses" actress, her life as a working royal was not the fairytale it seemed from the outside.

During the two-hour interview with Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex revealed how she was forced into an isolated life where the palace had control of her life and her image and even how often she socialized with her friends.


Markle also talked about racism and colonial undertones in the media and the royal family, especially when she was pregnant with her and the prince's first child, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

The actress revealed that her son's skin color had been a topic of conversation and that she had been told that he would not be given the title of a prince, nor would he be given security.



Prince Harry and Markle's interview also contained shocking revelations as they opened up about feeling trapped and how the former actress was driven to contemplate suicide during their time at the palace.

The couple finally found freedom when they officially stepped down from their roles as senior royals last year and moved to California, where Markle was born and raised.
