Leigh-Anne Pinnock has praised the Duchess of Sussex for speaking out about her experience within the Royal Family.

The Little Mix star, who recently stunned with a brand new hairstyle, took to her Instagram feed to share a gorgeous snap of Meghan Markle before launching into how strong a woman she is for speaking out about the “underlying racism within the royal establishment”.

Meghan, 39, and her 36 year old husband Prince Harry spoke out about how there were “concerns about how dark” their one year old son Archie’s “skin might be when he’s born.”

Oprah later said that the alleged comment was not made by grandmother Queen Elizabeth II or his grandfather Prince Philip.

Throwing support behind Meghan and Harry, Leigh-Anne told her 6.4million followers: “What people may wish to believe and view as a “privileged life” let this be a lesson to all of us.

“When you become known to the public there is no safety net to protect you from what people can fire out and say about you.

“We witness this all the time, particularly concerning women and more to the core, women of colour.”

The Black Magic hitmaker, who recently shared a touching tribute to Jesy Nelson with a sweet video to celebrate their last months together as a girlband, continued: “Meghan has been dragged from the start and we have all witnessed it.

“I praise her strength and determination for speaking out on her experiences showing the underlying racism lying within the royal establishment.”

She also commended Prince Harry’s role in standing by Meghan as she went on: “I praise Harry for standing by his wife and child and being brave enough to say enough is enough, we’re out.

“As it’s international women’s day, I wish to send my love and support to Meghan.

“Too often we disregard a women’s emotions and mental strength. No more.

“Today, I urge anyone within a position where by they feel silenced, underrated, overlooked or less than to speak up and speak out.
