According to many royal watchers, the Duchess of Sussex has faced her fair share of unfair headlines and treatment in the British press.
“I have a great deal of feeling toward and about her because it’s one thing to be told what it will be like when you step onto the biggest stage with the brightest spotlight joining the royal family…and yet it’s still really hard to imagine,” Hillary explained to BBC Radio 5 Live’s Emma Barnett. “It takes some getting used to having every move scrutinized and analyzed and frankly things made up and I really wish her and her husband the very best because they are struggling to have a life of meaning and integrity on their own terms and that’s hard enough if you’re just walking around in today’s world.”
The former First Lady added, “But if you’re that big of a platform, it’s really difficult.”
As a mother, Hillary said she “just wants to put my arms around her. I want to hug her.”
She also has a message for the proud mom as her life continues to be put under a microscope.
The Book of Gutsy Women author added, “People don’t choose who they fall in love with. They fall in love and she is an amazing young woman. She has an incredible life story. She has stood up for herself. She has made her own way in this world and then she falls in love and he falls in love with her and everybody should be celebrating that.”
