Meghan Markle on the reason why she doesn't read the reports about herself
Meghan Markle has revealed why she feels it is "safer" not to read the stories about herself - and to stay off Twitter.
The Duchess of Sussex took part in a panel discussion on International Women's Day on Friday in King College. The panel was convened by The Queen's Commonwealth Trust, which the Queen made Meghan vice-president of earlier that day.
Anne McElvoy, the panel's chairwoman and senior editor of The Economist, asked her about how she felt about the newspaper headlines that called her feminism "trendy".
The mum-to-be responded [via Hello]:
"I don't read anything, it's much safer that way.
"But equally that's just my own personal preference, because I think positive or negative, it can all sort of just feel like noise to a certain extent these days, as opposed to getting muddled with that to focus on the real cause."
The Duchess was later asked if she looked at Twitter, and said it was her "personal preference" to avoid the social media site.
Before Meghan was a member of the royal family, she was very into her social media.
As the star of hit show Suits, Meghan earned herself over three million followers on Instagram.
She used the photo-sharing site to give her fans a candid view into her life, posting everything from selfies and holiday snaps to photos of herself and her co-stars on set and adorable pictures of her two dogs, Bogart and Guy.
Meghan also used her Instagram to promote her lifestyle blog, The Tig, and raise awareness of the humanitarian causes she was involved in.
She closed her social media accounts, as well as her lifestyle blog, when her engagement to Prince Harry was announced.
