Fashion

It seems no one can stop talking about Meghan Markle. With her royal wedding to Prince Harry quickly approaching, everything the former actress does or wears makes headlines. But one article in particular about the bride-to-be’s hair is receiving a lot of criticism online.

The story, which ran on Marie Claire’s website Thursday, is titled “Meghan Markle Has a Single Gray Hair — And it’s magnificent.” The author, Sally Holmes, doesn’t seem malicious with her piece, as she points out that Markle’s gray hair makes her seem more “human” and relatable.

“Who knows if Meghan Markle is choosing to just own it, not waste the time and money on such frequent upkeep, or, just doesn’t notice because it’s ONE HAIR. But, either way, it’s nice to see she’s a regular person with a few stray grays, just like everyone else!” Holmes wrote.

But despite the author’s intentions, the article received a lot of backlash on social media. Many people are upset that the magazine bothered to even call out Markle’s gray hair in the first place. Others joked about the non-news nature of the story.
