With Helena Bonham Carter decades in entertainment experience, she offered the Duchess of Sussex some advice on how to cope with negative media attention and online trolls.
This is not the first time that the advice has been given to Meghan Markle, so maybe it is time that she really start listening.
The 53-year-old actress, who portrays Princess Margaret in the Netflix series “The Crown,” went on the “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” on Tuesday. She spoke about her thoughts on the negative press on Meghan Markle and drunkenly asking Prince William to be her child’s godfather.
According to Carter, she does not pay attention to it and wishes she would not have to.
“I feel like there’s just so much. It’s just all too much. It’s tough for her not to,” Carter explained.
The Oscar-nominated actress added that despite the unfairness of negativity, it should not come as a surprise to Markle and that it is something she’ll have to accept.
“All I’d say to her is as soon as you become well known and in the public domain, you have to accept that, possibly, you’re all that people think of you and write about you.
And whatever, that’s about them, and it’s not really about her,” the “Oceans 8” star furthered.
Carter also questioned why Markle has to be affected by the opinions of strangers. She emphasized that Markle, or anyone for that matter, should ever put their self-esteem in the hands of people they do not know at all.
The actress went on to explain that she could see similarities to what Markle is experiencing and what she learned while playing the late Princess Margaret.
“So many people keep giving me an opinion about every single person in the royal family. You’re like, ‘You didn’t meet them!'” Carter exclaimed, adding that everyone feels that they are an authority.
During her interview, Carter also recalled an experience she had with Prince William from 2014.
“The Crown” Season 3 is already on Netflix. The entire cast was replaced to mark the passage of time.
Claire Foy left after the first two seasons, replacing the Queen role with Olivia Colman.
