Here's Why Chrissy Teigen Is "Extremely Protective" Of Meghan Markle

Chrissy Teigen never shies away from sharing her feelings on social media. She's known as Queen of the Clap Back on Twitter for good reason. One person who's been on the receiving end of her social media sass? Thomas Markle. Yup, Chrissy called out Meghan Markle's estranged father on Twitter for repeatedly talking about his daughter in the press. Why? Because she is "extremely protective of Meghan Markle despite not knowing her. I will not apologize." 

Chrissy revealed this tidbit over the weekend after British personality Katie Hopkins shared side-by-side photos of Meghan and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton, rudely implying that Meghan has no class. This didn't fly with Chrissy, of course. While a lot of fans and royal watchers feel protective of the Duchess of Sussex as she navigates her new life as a royal, it's not totally true that Chrissy doesn't know Meghan. The two appeared on the hit game show Deal or No Deal together about a decade ago. 

 

Chrissy and Meghan haven't stayed in touch over the years, but Chrissy's affection for her former co-star remains. She spoke with The Daily Mail about her relationship with Meghan, saying she loves all the royals but is "especially a fan of Meghan [Markle]. I was on Deal or No Deal with her and she was lovely. Now everyone asks me what she was like and I say, ‘Sorry, no dirt.’ She’s gorgeous."

Chrissy also recently opened up about Meghan during an interview with Andy Cohen. "I think she came in the second season or something," Chrissy said. "I did it from pilot season to first season, and then I got demoted because I couldn’t walk down the stairs. I got fired or something." 

"It was a very blurry time in my life," she continued. "I remember her being just very quiet and sweet. Just really kind, and I don't say that about anybody."

Be warned internet trolls: If you come for Meghan Markle, you'll have to deal with Chrissy Teigen.
