Royal fans joke of ‘GoFundMe’ starter for crying Meghan next to £2,000 blanket

Meghan Markle has been mocked by Royal Family fans who have joked they will start up a GoFundMe for the weeping Duchess.

The Duchess of Sussex was spotted in the trailer of the upcoming Netflix documentary, Harry & Meghan, crying in front of a blanket valued at £2,000.

Seemingly moved by this crying screengrab from the trailer, several Royal Family fans took to Twitter and joked that they would "give to her GoFundMe" in a brutal jab to the Sussex pair ahead of their documentary release.

A trailer for the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle-led documentary was released by Netflix just days ago.

Within that trailer, Meghan could be spotted weeping in a chair, clutching her mobile phone and her head in one hand, right in front of a £2,000 Hermés blanket.

Twitter users were less than impressed by this act of emotion and subsequently mocked the Duchess, claiming they would set things right with a bit of fundraising.

One user wrote: "Where can I give to her GoFundMe for another Hermes blanket… no one should live like this."

Another user blasted the Duchess as someone attempting to be relatable yet material with her fancy blanket, which costs upwards of a couple grand.

Expert Elser wrote: "Does anyone, after watching this trailer, really think we are in for a nuanced portrait of the competing demands of personal happiness versus duty?

"That there might be any real acknowledgment of their extraordinary privilege, both materially and the global platform afforded to them as frontline members of the royal family? (The Hermès blanket moment nearly seems like a parody.)"
