Meghan Markle's banana messages to sex workers branded 'offensive'

Adjust Comment Print

As the birth of her first child approaches, Meghan Markle has reportedly hired a doula to help her prepare for labour.

While many thought it was an act of kindness by the Duchess, Morgan believes otherwise.

"Giving a sex worker a banana is clearly exposing her to potential mockery".

While packing the food parcels, the royal newlywed asked for a marker to write empowering messages on the bananas.

The project provides women with practical and emotional support, including expert advice and crisis care to hot showers and lunch.

Meghan and Harry were paying a visit to Bristol charity One25, which supports women involved in sex work, when she got involved with helping to prepare food packages and chose to write motivational messages on bananas with a pen.

But Morgan scoffed at the idea on Good Morning Britain.

While meeting volunteers and preparing the food packages, Meghan suggested writing positive messages on the bananas, such as 'You are courageous, ' 'You are strong, ' and 'You are loved'.

She had been inspired by a canteen manager in the USA, who wrote similar affirmations on bananas to make school children feel empowered.

He said: "The Duchess of Sussex doesn't just wear the trousers in this marriage, she wears the suit, tie and marching boots of Harry's old army uniform too".

The duchess wrote on the bananas, "You are strong" and "You are loved", as well as "You are brave" and "You are special".

However, one of the sex workers due to be handed one of the bananas told The Sun the message was offensive.

But the former actress is going with whatever feels right for her, regardless of the rules.

Kensington Palace revealed that we'd see the Duke and Duchess of Sussex together again on Tuesday, February 12, for a gala performance of "The Wider Earth" at the Natural History Museum in London. "She's acting great at the moment".
