Earlier this month it was revealed that Meghan and the Duchess of Cambridge's staff are spending hours each week dealing with vile messages sent by trolls on social media, including "violent threats" and sexist and racist comments.

In a series of interviews with People, they have revealed what Meghan is really like and shared details about how she's coping with royal life.

One, described simply as a costar, said: "Meg has silently sat back and endured the lies and untruths. We worry about what this is doing to her and the baby.

"It's wrong to put anyone under this level of emotional trauma, let alone when they're pregnant."

The friends claim they've all been to Meghan and Harry 's cottage, describing it as "small" and saying she's "made it cozy".

They say she cooks for her and Harry every night and stress that she still loves feeding people.

The interviews also address the fallout between Meghan and her family, with the friends saying her half-siblings Thomas Jr and Samantha Markle were "not part of her life".

They also claim her dad Thomas has "never called; never texted" and said it's "super painful".
