Meghan Markle has been a hot topic in the tabloids for over a year now; after becoming engaged to Prince Harry, marrying into the most iconic family in the world, and now entering into her third trimester with her first child, every little moment of Meghan’s journey has been exploited in the media.
Given Meghan’s new role in the Royal Family, she no longer has the opportunity to freely depend herself. Thankfully, she’s got some great girlfriends who are speaking on her behalf.
In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, one friend revealed that Meghan has had to turn to her relationship with God. The friend shared that “Meg is extremely faithful. We pray a lot together. We meditate. She has had, and especially has now, a very close relationship with God.”
Rather than playing into the rumors that tabloids have been spreading, Meg’s close friends revealed that she was much more meaningful and selfless than she’d been painted out to be. In hopes of revealing Meghan’s true nature, one friend said, “If I'm thrown some kind of curveball, I always think, 'I gotta talk to Meg.’”
Just hours after Meghan’s friends came to her a rescue (a response that was likely encouraged from the Royal Family given her massive online bullying), Meghan appeared with Harry at Draper’s Hall in London’s financial district for the Endeavour Fund Awards.
Meghan was glowing in outfit by her wedding dress designer, Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy. While some critics wondered if she’d carry herself differently after appearing in the headlines explicitly for the last couple days, she appeared as confident as ever.
Meghan has always appeared to be confident in her own skin, and after hearing her friends confirm her reliance on God, it’s clear that Meghan is not seeking approval from anyone. Her fans were thrilled to see her first appearance since her friends publicly defended her. It became clear that Meghan was at peace and grateful for her life.
