Hillary Clinton has expressed her support for Meghan Markle after the Duchess of Sussex candidly revealed her struggles with being in the public eye.
“Oh my God, I want to hug her!” Clinton told BBC Radio 5 Live host Emma Barnett on Tuesday. “I feel as a mother I just want to put my arms around her, I want to tell her to hang in there, don’t let those bad guys get you down. Keep going, do what you think is right. She has made her own way in the world,” Clinton said. “Then she falls in love, and he falls in love with her, and everybody should be celebrating that because it is a true love story. You can just look at them and see that.”
Hilary Clinton who is currently on a promotion tour for The Book of Gutsy Women, which she co-wrote with daughter Chelsea Clinton, added some advice for Meghan Markle: “You know, it’s not easy, and there are some techniques that can be learned along the way, some humor, some deflection, whatever, which I’m sure she will come to. But it is tough what she is going through. And I think she deserves a lot better.”
