Speculations about Meghan Markle’s recent appearance have been making rounds on social media, with some suggesting that she has undergone cosmetic procedures to resemble her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton.
Markle, who made her first appearance since announcing that she won’t be attending King Charles’ coronation, debuted a sleek straightened hairstyle during a video link at a TED Talk by her friend, Misan Harriman.
Social media watchdogs were quick to point out the similarities between Markle’s new look and Middleton’s appearance. One Twitter user raised the question of plastic surgery, stating, “PLASTIC SURGERY ALERT? Sad Meghan Markle wants to be Kate Middleton so bad.” Another claimed that Markle had changed the color of her eyes with contact lenses to resemble Middleton. Some even accused Markle of trying to copy Middleton’s style, with one tweet sarcastically stating, “She looks like she’s trying to look like Kate…that won’t happen.”
While some of Markle’s supporters defended her, stating that her appearance was a result of lighting, angles, and contouring, and that hair straightening is common among black women, others speculated that she may have been inspired by Hollywood stars like Jennifer Lopez or Kim Kardashian.
Markle has been relatively out of the public eye in recent months, leading to speculation about potential cosmetic procedures. Some online commentators speculated that she may have had a facelift, filler dissolved in her lips, buccal fat removal, cheek fillers, Botox, veneers, or a chin implant. However, Markle’s representatives declined to comment on these accusations, and insiders close to her camp denied the surgery claims.
Multiple sources who have worked with Markle claimed that her recent change in appearance may be due to losing the weight she gained during her pregnancies with her daughter, Lili. Some sources also mentioned the possibility of hair color changes, Botox, and lip fillers.
Apart from her appearance, Markle has also been in the spotlight for her decision not to attend King Charles’ coronation. Speculations arose that Middleton had “blocked” Markle from the event, while others suggested that Markle’s absence was a way for her to portray herself as a martyr. Markle’s representatives, however, dismissed reports that her decision was related to exchanged letters with King Charles about her concerns of racism within the royal family.
To sum up, Meghan Markle’s recent appearance has sparked speculation about potential cosmetic procedures and resemblances to Kate Middleton. While some have made accusations of plastic surgery, Markle’s supporters and insiders have denied these claims. Markle’s appearance and decisions continue to be a subject of interest and speculation in the media and among royal watchers.
