Meghan Markle has been under a lot of media scrutiny and as the Duchess of Sussex, it didn't stop there. She was also targeted by online trolls who abused her.

Reportedly, Meghan Markle was targeted with staggering levels of online abuse ever since one photo of her emerged, prompting the Royal Family to issue a dire warning to cruel trolls.

Apparently, the Duchess of Sussex, who is around seven months pregnant, wowed in Dior gown during her recent royal visit to Morocco but trolls were quick to point out Meghan's belly button, which appeared to be protruding from her dress.

A "popped" belly button appearance is a sign a woman who is well into her pregnancy - but vile trolls were quick to blast the Duchess.

It is being reported that the Royal Family issued a warning to trolls, demanding users show respect and courtesy when commenting on the Royal Family's social media sites.

The statement reads: "The aim of our social media channels is to create an environment where our community can engage safely in debate and is free to make comments, questions and suggestions.
