A recently resurfaced clip from the Netflix documentary series ‘Harry & Meghan’ has raised questions about whether the Duchess of Sussex smokes.
This revelation has stirred intrigue, as it sheds light on a hidden vice of the 41-year-old former royal, who now resides in Montecito, California.
Does Meghan Markle smoke?
In the opening scenes of the Netflix series feature Meghan without makeup, with a towel covering her hair, and emotionally vulnerable.
The Duchess expresses her desire to overcome the challenges she faces and says: “I just really want to get to the other side of all this. I don’t really know what to say anymore. Unfortunately, in us standing for something, they are destroying us.”
During that scene, some viewers suggested that Meghan Markle was smoking as they noticed the presence of smoke.
However, others point out that Meghan is a known fan of Soho Home candles and frequently uses them to create a relaxing atmosphere in her home.
The clip has reminded many users on the networks of a photo posted in 2019 that shows Meghan reclining on a lounger in a luxury hotel, allegedly holding a cigarette.
Meghan Markle’s controversial smoking photo
In the image, Meghan holds what appears to be a cigarette in her right hand while accompanied by a friend.
The photo sparked reactions at the time, with many concerned about the implications of Meghan smoking while pregnant with her first child, Archie.
Kensington Palace did not comment on the veracity of the photo or clarify whether Meghan smoked.
As a health-conscious blogger and yoga enthusiast before joining the royal family, Meghan is not expected to be a smoker.
In addition, Meghan is said to have helped her husband, Prince Harry kick the cigarette smoking habit.
However, both the reappearing scene on Netflix and the controversial 2019 photo have led some to speculate that Meghan herself smokes cigarettes or marijuana in private.
It should be emphasized that these are purely speculative rumors born from social media.
