But it seems Meghan has dealt with a lot worse before, in an interview on Sunday, Meghan revealed viewers threatened to KILL her after her on screen character in Suits cheated on her boyfriend.

Meghan has reportedly asked for time off from her TV show 'Suits'. The news comes just days after Prince Harry released the statement blasting the media for the “abuse and harassment” of his new love.

Prince Harry and Meghan have quietly been in a relationship for 6 months now, but only confirmed the relationship in a statement through Kensington Palace earlier this week.
according to Page Six, Meghan is taking the time off in order to meet with lawyers to discuss her rise to international fame, and the scrutiny that goes along with it.
The official Kensington Palace statement said:
“The past week has seen a line crossed. The Prince's girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment.
“Some of this has been very public – the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments.”
Meghan appears to be a beautiful, talented and intelligent girl of good sense. She is taking the logical steps to protect herself now and in the future. It's early days yet but she would make a lovely princess.
