Royal SLIP-UP: Meghan Markle’s 'banana messages' deemed 'OFFENSIVE' by sex worker

She penned words like "you are special", "you are strong", "you are brave" and "you are loved" with love hearts.

But the Duchess's messages - which she'd hoped would help some of the workers trapped in the cycle of selling their bodies to survive - has attracted widespread ridicule.

Meghan Markle wrote inspirational quotes on the fruit whilst helping to pack food parcels, which were then distributed to sex workers around Bristol, during a visit to a charity.

US Weekly reports that the Duchess is making her own rules when it comes to her first birth so royal tradition will just have to be forgotten for this particular event in her life.

Meghan's connection to the royal family is clear (you know, since she's officially in it and all), but if you need a refresher on Mirren's, think back to 2006.

It found shocking evidence of misconduct and greed in the Australian financial sector, at the expense of customers and businesses. Under particular threat are funeral insurers, with the commissioner recommending they be regulated as a financial product.

According to the Daily Mail, the doula is believed to be Laura Mishcon, who is expected to be by Markle's side when she welcomes her first child with Prince Harry in April and has reportedly already made several visits to Kensington Palace. I have an idea. "Harry and William have mentioned it to me and have been very amusing and very cool about it.I think Harry once said, when I was at an awards ceremony, he said, 'And Granny is here'".

"On each of the bananas she wrote an affirmation, to make the kids feel really, like, empowered".

She said: "It's so cold right now, it's a struggle to raise money to get a bed for the night, so any food and bedding is a big help".

Doulas are also known as "birth companions", "birth coaches" or "post-birth supporters", providing practical and emotional guidance during labour and beyond - they are not medically trained, but help mums-to-be achieve a positive birth experience. "It is really sweet".
