The Duchess of Sussex has received an outpouring of support from her fans after a private letter she wrote to her father Thomas Markle was published online. And among those who jumped to Meghan's defence was Princess Tessy of Luxembourg. Tessy, who is the ex-wife of Prince Louis of Luxembourg, replied to a tweet posted by Royal Central that linked to an article about Meghan.

The article praised Meghan for being "a positive force for the monarchy," for carrying out successful tours abroad and for choosing to support a diverse range of charities – and not least, for making Prince Harry happy.

Their tweet read, "The Duchess of Sussex still deserves better than how she has been treated," prompting Tessy, 33, to reply: "Absolutely! No one deserves that. One should never assume. Either you know or be quite, it's not nice to talk badly about someone else just because one can, as he or she takes advantage of the anonymity of the web. Stay kind!!! It's the new cool! She does not deserve that."

Last year, Tessy represented herself at the High Court in London during her divorce proceedings. According to the Daily Mail, Tessy faced senior barrister James Ewins QC and his legal team, who were representing Prince Louis.
