Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spoke of the Duchess’ struggles with media scrutiny and negativity during their African tour, the royal couple has received support from countless people all over the world. One of these supporters is, surprisingly, the mother of one of the men the former “Suits” star previously dated.

The mom of one dated Cory Vitiello from 2014 until 2016. The Canadian restaurateur was Meghan Markle's last boyfriend before meeting Harry, according to Marie Claire. Apparently, the ex-couple parted amicably since the Canadian celebrity chef’s mother, Joanne Vitiello, remains supportive of her son’s ex-girlfriend.

“It's about time! So sad and shocking to see there is so much jealous, hostility and bullying directed her way,” Joanne Vitiello posted on her Twitter account, according to New Idea. However, the tweet was later deleted for still unknown reasons.

There were rumors, back then, that Meghan ended her relationship with the Canadian chef just weeks before meeting her future husband, Prince Harry. In fact, she posted an article on her blog right after they parted ways, which was believed to be her ode to her former boyfriend.

“And maybe that's part of it,” Meghan Markle wrote on her now-closed blog Tig. “The small-town charm and moral compass of someone who doesn't come from the big city, but dreams big thoughts and makes them happen – that makes his food so approachable yet inspired.”

Aside from Cory’s mother, the Duchess of Sussex also gained supporters among U.K.’s political personalities. Female members of the British Parliament have banded together to show their support in the Duchess’ legal battle against “often distasteful and misleading” press, according to Time.

In a statement, the group supported Meghan Markle’s fight against invasion of privacy. “On occasions, stories and headlines have represented an invasion of your privacy and have sought to cast aspersions about your character, without any good reason,” the statement reads.

Women MPs likewise expressed their support to Meghan’s fight against the sometimes misleading reports printed by tabloids. “Even more concerning still, we are calling out what can only be described as outdated, colonial undertones to some of these stories,” the group added.

Meghan Markle, previously, revealed on ITV’s documentary “Harry & Meghan: An African Journey” that she wasn’t expecting that kind of treatment from British tabloids at all. “I never thought this would be easy but I thought it would be fair,” the Duchess said. “And that is the part that is hard to reconcile.”
