Meghan Markle is facing criticism ahead of her upcoming speech to veterans at the Invictus Games. Some people have questioned her right to speak about courage, given her privileged upbringing and lack of military experience.
Markle, who is the Duchess of Sussex, will deliver the keynote address at the Invictus Games closing ceremony in The Hague, Netherlands on September 5, 2023. The Invictus Games are an international sporting event for wounded, injured, and sick armed services personnel and veterans.
Markle’s speech has been met with mixed reactions. Some people have welcomed her involvement, saying that she is a strong advocate for veterans and that her speech will be inspiring. Others have criticized her, saying that she is not qualified to speak about courage and that she is using the Invictus Games to promote herself.
One critic, journalist Piers Morgan, said that Markle “knows nothing about courage” and that her speech will be “a joke.” Another critic, royal commentator Angela Levin, said that Markle is “trying to make herself look good” by speaking at the Invictus Games.
Markle’s supporters have defended her, saying that she is a strong and independent woman who has faced her own challenges. They also say that she is passionate about helping veterans and that her speech will be a powerful message of hope.
It remains to be seen how Markle’s speech will be received. However, it is clear that she is facing a lot of criticism ahead of the event.
The Invictus Games are a celebration of courage and resilience. Markle’s speech is an opportunity for her to share her own story and to inspire others. Whether or not people agree with her, her speech is likely to be a powerful message of hope.
