Following their defining interview with Oprah Winfrey and the allegations of Meghan bullying palace staff, friends and colleagues of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex came to their defence and offered support on social media. Serena Williams, Gabrielle Union, and longtime colleague and friend Patrick J. Adams, plus so many more all shared heartfelt tributes about Meghan.

On 10 March, Beyoncé was the latest celebrity and friend of the couple to offer her kind words. "Thank you Meghan for your courage and leadership. We are all strengthened and inspired by you," Beyoncé wrote on her website, shared next to a photo of them both at the Lion King premiere. The premiere photographed is where Meghan and Beyoncé first met, hitting it off instantly as they hugged and had a short, casual conversation about their children.

Though Beyoncé's message was short, it spoke volumes in support for the duchess.
