It’s been just four months since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said “I do,” but the new Duchess of Sussex is already struggling with royal life. The former Suits actress has been criticized for everything from her style choices to the way she crosses her legs and how she wears her hair. She also received backlash for attempting to hold her husband’s hand in public. 

Perhaps that’s why Meg allegedly went on a secret trip recently to visit her BFF Jess Mulroney in Toronto — to escape all the stress. “Meghan has lost touch with some of her close friends from before the wedding, which has been tough,” a source told People in a new interview. “She’s finding it hard to know who to trust.”

Most recently, she’s been dealing with all the drama around her father, Thomas Markle, who cannot seem to keep his mouth shut in a plethora of TV interviews. “It was very wearing on her. It’s her private life,” the insider added.

Not only was her father caught making a deal with paparazzi before he skipped her wedding, but her half-sister, Samantha Grant, recently tweeted that because Meghan has ignored her father’s pleas to reconnect, “If [he] dies, I’m holding you responsible, Meg!”

Royal sources recently told Life & Style that her health is deteriorating as a result. “Her rings are slipping from her hands and her hair is thinning,” an insider revealed. “She loves Harry, but when it comes to life as a royal, she’s lately been asking herself, ‘How will I get through this?'”

And while Harry’s new wife puts on a false front during appearances, she breaks down when no one’s watching. “She’s never felt so alone,” the source added. “She’s all smiles at events, but behind Kensington Palace doors, it’s a completely different story. Meghan has been in tears.”

Right now, she needs all the support she can get. “No matter how hard Meghan tries,” the source said, “she feels like she can’t do anything right.” We hope things get easier for her!
