Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have, since their marriage, dedicated themselves to highlighting charitable causes and important issues.

They use their Instagram account “Sussexroyal” to raise awareness for environmentalism.

Meghan has edited the September issue of Vogue, in which she has promoted a number of social justice issues.

However, Nigel Farage has had harsh words for couple.

Nigel Farage appeared at a event in Sydney, Australia, making a speech in which he criticised members of the Royal Family, the Guardian has reported.

At the rightwing event the British Brexit Party politician he called Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s political endeavours “irrelevant”.

The event was the Conservative Political Action Conference, at which Mr Farage appeared last night.

Many will be shocked by his views on many members of the Royal Family.

He particularly criticised Meghan, Harry, the Queen Mother and Prince Charles.

The UK politician appeared disappointed in the apparent change in Prince Harry’s persona overtime. He has become more activism-minded in later life, although Mr Farage took issue with this.

“Terrifying,” Mr Farage said, “here was Harry, here he was this young, brave, boisterous, all male, getting into trouble, turning up at stag parties inappropriately dressed, drinking too much and causing all sorts of mayhem.

“And then, a brave British officer who did his bit in Afghanistan. He was the most popular royal of a younger generation that we’ve seen for 100 years.

“And then he met Meghan Markle, and it’s fallen off a cliff. We’ve been told in the last week that Meghan and Harry will only have two children…and we’re all completely ignoring, the real problem the Earth faces, and that is the fact the population of the globe is exploding but no one dares talk about it, no one dares deal with it, and whether Prince Harry has two kids is irrelevant given there are now 2.6 billion Chinese and Indians on this Earth.”

Mr Farage appeared to be referencing a time when the young Prince dressed in a Nazi uniform for a 2005 fancy dress party, a move that was widely condemned and criticised.

Mr Farage also had very harsh words about the Queen Mother. He called her “overweight, chain-smoking gin drinker.”

However, the Queen he roundly praised, calling Mer Majesty, 93, “an amazing, awe-inspiring woman, we’re bl**** lucky to have her”.

Twitter users weighed in on the controversial remarks made by the politician.

Another politcian, David Lammy, has weighed into the drama, tweeting: “Lay off Meghan you bellicose toad.”

Royal correspondent of the Daily Express Richard Palmer said: “British politicians rarely criticise members of the Royal Family. So this is controversial.”

Another said: “Just in case anyone hadn’t realised what a low life Farage is – read what he’s been saying in Australia.Not so patriotic when it suits him.”

“An appalling speech – see where we are heading with #Brexit!” another said.

Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.

She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

Charity and humanitarian work

Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.

In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.

But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.

She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.

And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.

They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan’s heritage

Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.

Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.

She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
