Academics accuse Meghan Markle of dropping her feminist beliefs as part of an 'upperclass makeover' to become a more traditional royal

Meghan Markle has not revolutionised the royals with her feminist ideals but has instead been subjected to a 'conservative, upperclass makeover' it has been claimed.

A new report into The Duchess of Sussex has suggested rather than encouraging change at the heart of the British monarchy, Meghan has conformed to conservative ways.



The Suits actress who won Prince Harry's heart has been a vocal campaigner, activist and feminist and travelled around the world to speak out for change in society.

But since her wedding, the Duchess has used her celebrity status to 're-legitimise' the royal family's male monarchical power Laura Clancy and Hannah Yelin from Celebrity Studies said.

The researchers studied Meghan's activities before and after her wedding.

They say: 'Markle's activist voice has been either silenced or appropriated by the monarchy: she has quit her acting career, closed down her popular blog and social media accounts for all her online activity to be ciphered through Kensington Palace.

'Meanwhile, Markle is said to be receiving 'duchess lessons' from the Queen's advisers, to be brought up to speed with protocol and expectations of life with the monarchy.'

The Duchess has a long history of charitable work and fighting for women's rights.

In 2015, The Duchess became the UN Women's Advocate for Women's Political Participation and Leadership.

She said: 'Women make up more than half of the world's population ... it is neither just nor practical for our voices to go unheard at the highest levels of decision-making.'




On her royal profile the palace states her work with charities has encouraged her to devote herself to issues for women.

It states: 'These early experiences helped to shape her lifelong commitment to causes such as social justice and women's empowerment.'

Clancy, lectures in a sociology at Lancaster University and Yelin researches 'celebrity and gender issues' at Oxford Brookes University. The pair accused the Duchess of reversing the good work she had previously done.

They wrote: 'A celebrity (post) feminist such as Markle is of great value to a British monarchy keen to ... mask, or at least deflect attention from, their own intensely problematic relationship with issues of race, gender, class and religion.

'What is at stake here is much more than the representations of one woman and the meanings contained therein; it is the meaning of feminism itself.'

However, the actress who is pregnant with her first child has spoken out about women's issues and is expected to devote time to female empowerment work next year.

Ah PeDe, a million stars for you! I've been saying all along that instead of a game changer she's a conformist. She's going to do whatever it takes to keep the royal gravy train rolling her way. I'm glad some real feminists are calling her out on it. She's a pseudo-feminist, she doesn't have a strong commitment to anything or anybody except herself, she just happens to be a narcissistic woman.

I'm an academic.  I've been saying all along that if she was a true humanitarian and feminist, she wouldn't have married into this institution.  This institution is the very definition of the words "unequal" "oppressive" "colonial" and "misogynist". At the very least, if she was holding true to her beliefs, she would have turned down the title after they married.

Excellent thread!  Star
Sparkle never was and never will be a feminist. Her whole career is built on being a woman and a sultry and sexy one that is 
If she was a true feminist, hypothetically of course, she would have asked Dimwit to come and live with her in Toronto while she kept on earning her own income. But no, she jumped on the gravy train quicker than a feminist can say equality. Not a good role model for young women at all  Thumb down

I think feminism can mean different things to different women. For some, it's being a staying home mother. For some, it's choosing not to be a mother and focusing on career and education instead. For others, it's finding a balance between the two, and for even others it's ... well ... I won't go any further other than to say it's, as you stated above, using their feminine wiles to get ahead. I have no problem with Sparkles declaring herself a feminist. What I do have, though, is a problem with her utter and flagrant hypocrisy: saying that she stood her ground regarding nudity and love scenes in "Suits", yet then doing a video like the one where she was grilling burgers, using sex to try to get ahead. Or that she calls herself a vegetarian ... but apparently only on weekends ... or when she's offered money/publicity to do something like the grilling video. She was effusive in her praise of herself as a mom to rescue dogs, yet she callously left one behind when she moved to England. She calls herself a humanitarian, yet she wears outfits and carries accessories that cost more than many people's yearly salaries. I realize that, as a royal, she needs to look the part, but she has been absolutely obscene with her spending and so far has shown no inclination toward following Letizia or Victoria's example of mixing high street with high end. She's an expert at talking the talk, but as far as walking the walk, I can't take her seriously. As others have posted regarding Sparkles, the dress she wore in her engagement photos was the very definition of "Begin as you mean to go on." I had tried to like her up to that point and to give her the benefit of the doubt, but 56,000 quid for ONE dress for ONE occasion was just obscene and showed me that she was going to prove to be exactly what she has: more interested in the position, the celebrity, and the perks than in the actual role and all that it entails. She's a monumental hypocrite, full stop.

Yes, the hypocrisy is a big disgrace and the whole: "Do as I say not as I do vibe she is sending is nauseating.
As so many of you wonderful dishes said already. She could have been the new star and brought so much to this institute, if only she had been real, sincere, modest, humble, caring and compassionate, if only.... Dead

The only way I can see Meghan "devoting more time to female empowerment" in the next year is by tipping the press off about her drug free, natural birth as an example of her empowerment. Or some sort of stupid press stories about her labour aimed in that way, no doubt peeing of millions of women!
I think in the past and certainly in the present she's used labels (not thinking clothes here) to get attention. So bring a un ambassador, being a feminist, being vegan, now being a duchess, etc etc

I'm still hoping that she's still going through a settling in phase with the BRF and that after the child is born and she starts working again, she will start to practise what she used to preach and earn some respect.  I think there is a balance to be struck between being an independent-thinking feminist and being a member of the BRF.  Change can come from within by picking your battles and taking baby steps.  I'm not holding my breath though.
