Another added, “She looks like she’s trying to look like Kate….that won’t happen.”
Meghan the Duchess of ……what? Thought she didn’t want to associate with the racist royal family. Only when it suits (pun) her? She looks like she’s trying to look like Kate….that won’t happen. https://t.co/mGlyECtwTY

Some didn’t see the comparison to Kate but instead to the singer Jennifer Lopez.
Well, if that’s true, she looks less like Catherine now than before.
Imo, she’s actually copying the Jennifer Lopez look more.

Others praised Meghan’s altered appearance. A cosmetic marketing agency, the Cosmic Lane, tweeted, “Our good sis, Meghan Markle looks good! Is it the new hair, being stress free & living on her own terms orrrrrr we noticing a few tweakments?”

“Meghan didn’t have plastic surgery. It’s all about lighting, angles, and contouring,” one Twitter user wrote.
Meghan didn’t have plastic surgery.
It’s all about lighting, angles, and contouring.
And hair straightening is something many black women do. It has nothing to do with “erasing all traces of origin.”
Also, yte people need to shut up about about black women’s hair.

The U.K.’s Telegraph best summed up the surprising reveal by saying, “Whatever the reason behind Meghan’s decision to reveal her glossy new makeover, the message is clear — this is a woman firmly in control of her own narrative.”
