A magazine pointed out Meghan Markle's single grey hair, and Twitter is not happy
There are many things to talk about, when it comes to Meghan Markle.
Her acting career, sartorial prowess and, as if we could forget, her upcoming marriage to a prince.
But instead, one magazine chose to focus on the 36-year-old’s singular grey hair.
The article in Marie Claire, ‘Meghan Markle Has a Single Gray (sic) Hair’, described the existence of Markle’s single strand as a positive thing:
“Who knows if Meghan Markle is choosing to just own it, not waste the time and money on such frequent upkeep, or, just doesn’t notice because it’s ONE HAIR,” its author wrote.

“But, either way, it’s nice to see she’s a regular person with a few stray grays, just like everyone else!”
But whether the magazine meant for it to be a positive story or not, Twitter did not take the ‘reveal’ well.

One person tweeted: “Seriously, how is this a story?! Who cares if she has a grey hair, she’s a human being! Next time it’ll be ‘Meghan Markle has eye lashes’.”
Another said: “Just saw an article report on Meghan Markle’s ONE GREY HAIR. Can this poor woman just live her life?”

Someone else added: “Articles like this make teens and women lose confidence…”
Whether the piece had good intentions behind it or not, it’d be more inspirational for women to spot that Markle has a grey hair for themselves.
They’d see that Markle isn’t super human, and doesn’t spend her valuable time agonising over grey hairs.
But far more importantly, they’d notice that nobody cares.
