Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, is being criticized by the British press for using her role in the royal family to wage a social justice culture war.

Some of the American press has attributed the British press’s targeting of Meghan to racial prejudice. But some British tabloids contend they are giving Meghan negative press because she is employing the implied weight of the crown to advance her liberal politics. Elizabeth II aims for the crown to be politically neutral in its representation of the people of Britain and the commonwealth.
