Meg's mag should be hailed, not torn apart.

I absolutely abhor the idea of a monarchy but the ferocious attacks on Meghan Markle by Royalist commentators are racially charged.

The royal family is elitist, a waste of cash and born of an idea which should have remained in medieval times.

But even commentators who normally can't prise their lips from a royal backside are tearing at Markle like a pack of hungry hyenas.

She has guest edited the September issue of British Vogue and instead of gracing its cover herself, she featured the faces of 15 female, mainly non-white "activists".

It took until the 70s to have a black woman on the cover of the magazine, so having a number of women of colour on the front of the glossy is only positive.

The Queen is omitted from her list of inspiring women, so that is certainly a positive.
