During her interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan discussed the different standards applied to her and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge -- and how glaringly obvious it becomes when you examine media headlines.
When Kate was photographed cradling her baby bump, she was praised as a doting expectant mother -- but when Meghan was photographed doing the same, British media accused her of "pride or vanity."
Winfrey contrasted media coverage of Meghan and Kate eating avocados during their pregnancies. For Kate, it was said to be helping with morning sickness. However, for Meghan, avocados became a fruit linked to water shortages and "environmental devastation."
"You have to laugh at a certain point because it's just ridiculous," Meghan said. "That's a loaded piece of toast," she added.
She said she didn't know why there was a difference in standards for her and Kate.
"I can see now what layers were at play there. And again, they really seemed to want a narrative of a hero and a villain."
