Wendy Williams clapped back at The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle after her tell-all interview for the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, saying to the former Suits star, “No one feels sorry for you.”
Williams spoke about the documentary during her Hot Topics segment on The Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday, October 23 and remarked that she didn’t feel any sympathy for the newbie royal, claiming that Markle could not have been as undereducated as she claimed to be about what life would be like when becoming involved with Prince Harry.
“You knew what you were signing up for, girl!” claimed the talk show host after showing her audience a clip of Markle claiming that her friends from the United States were happy for her relationship with the Duke of Sussex, but her British friends tried to talk her out of moving forward in their love affair, claiming that the British tabloids would destroy her life and Markle claiming that she “just didn’t get it.”
“Yes, you did. You knew exactly what you were doing. Please, don’t try to garner sympathy from us. You knew what you were doing,” slammed Williams. “Or Meghan’s lying to try and get sympathy, for us to give her sympathy, if someone, in fact, told [her] that.”
Williams continued to go after Markle, stating that Markle should not be surprised the notorious British paparazzi are following her every move now that she is a royal. She then quipped that Markle wasn’t getting followed when she was a key player as the star of Suits.
She also dropped a bombshell, reported Page Six, stating that Markle had a brief connection to her show. Williams claimed that she didn’t know who the fledgling actress was when she reportedly came for employment at Wendy and “wanted to be one of our runway models.”

In Tembisa, Johannesburg, today The Duke and Duchess visited to meet young entrepreneurs at the YES hub – a hive for creativity and social enterprise. Their visit was an amazing tour of the ingenuity and opportunity – seeing businesses that varied from food to essential sanitary products for local women. During their visit, they were able to sample food from ‘Chef Mish’ – a local masterchef winner – which he makes at the site as part of his catering business and cafe. They then joined YES community members to take part in training and tests that will help them gain skills and find work. On the third stop today, entrepreneur Moss showed The Duke and Duchess the organic produce he's growing in the township with aquaponics – supplying local restaurants. And finally, The Duke and Duchess met the women behind the amazing Blossom Care Solutions – who are making 80,000 sanitary pads every month for women in their community. They are 100% compostable, and provide an essential low-cost product for women and girls. The Duchess has long campaigned on this issue and wrote in Time magazine in 2017, saying: “In communities all over the globe, young girls’ potential is being squandered because we are too shy to talk about the most natural thing in the world. To that I say: we need to push the conversation, mobilize policy making surrounding menstrual health initiatives, support organizations who foster girls’ education from the ground up, and within our own homes, we need to rise above our puritanical bashfulness when it comes to talking about menstruation.” • See our previous post to see The Dukes speech #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica Photo ©️ PA images
The Inquisitr previously reported that Markle’s candid admission about not only her difficult adjustment to life in the spotlight as well as her feelings about motherhood and navigating life as a newlywed had some comparing her interview to that of her late mother-in-law Princess Diana, who candidly spoke of her own troubling adjustments to the House of Windsor in 1995.
In that interview, conducted by Martin Bashir for Panorama, the late Princess of Wales spoke candidly about life within the palace walls. She blamed Charles’ affair with Camilla Parker Bowles for the breakdown of her marriage and questioned her then-estranged husband’s suitability to be king.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly going to spend the Thanksgiving holidays in America with her mother Doria Ragland. They will return to London in time to spend Christmas with the rest of the royal family.
