She is still adored by so many people.

Over the weekend, Markle chose to fly to NY to support her close pal Serena Williams for the U.S. Open finals. I think her ambition is to become a princess. It's not the first time the Duchess of Sussex made the trip, but it is the only time she left her four-month-old son behind to do it. They say it was unthinkable for Meghan Markle to leave the baby home when he's so young.

The segment, which opened with hosts Nick, Jess and Simon commenting on the abundance of negative Meghan Markle stories online, saying "people just love to attack her", featured seven minutes of Hopkins spouting similar negativity to her widely-criticised 60 Minutes appearance.

DeGeneres tweeted in August about her meeting with Meghan and Harry, when she said she visited the couple with wife Portia de Rossi.

But on the most recent trip to NY, things were quite different. She didn't try to hide her itinerary or pretend she wasn't going to watch some tennis.

That report followed one in The Mail on Sunday that claimed Meghan and Harry are mulling a move to her native Los Angeles after facing criticism in England.

Private yoga classes? Not for Meghan Markle.

She concluded: "The reason I think it's the make-or-break time, as I say, they're at the three-year point in their relationship, they've had a new baby which is a pressure in itself, and they're in this invidious position where they are Royal, but not-Royal, having ordinary lives".

The new mom, wearing a casual denim dress, looked nervous as she supported her pal but Serena couldn't come back to beat Bianca.

Ms Cundy met the now-Duchess of Sussex during her first visit to the United Kingdom when then-Meghan Markle still worked as an actress for TV show Suits.

But instead of hiding from haters, Meghan Markle ignored the screaming headlines and did exactly what she wanted to do. She took a flight, did some yoga, shared some cupcakes, and settled in for a tennis match.

Snippets from the episode, which investigated how "Meghan Markle lost her sparkle, showed Karl Stefanovic interviewing outspoken and self-proclaimed "Biggest B***h in Britain" commentator Katie Hopkins and Meghan's supposed former friend Lizzie Cundy, who described the duchess as "manipulative" in the promo".
