Pink is the latest celebrity to defend the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, saying Meghan has been subjected to ‘the most public form of bullying I have seen in a while’.
The US singer followed Sir Elton John and chat show host Ellen DeGeneres in condemning the perceived mistreatment of the royal couple, who have been criticised for their use of private jets.
Sir Elton had earlier hit out at ‘relentless and untrue assassinations on their character’ while Ellen said they were ‘the most down-to-earth, compassionate people’.
I’m happy to see people coming to the defense of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The way people treat her is the most public form of bullying I have seen in a while. It’s out of control. Let’s all be a bit kinder, huh? Let’s show our children that it’s cool to be kind.

Grammy Award-winning Pink has now asked fans to ‘be a bit kinder’.
She tweeted: ‘I’m happy to see people coming to the defence of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
‘The way people treat her is the most public form of bullying I have seen in a while. It’s out of control. Let’s all be a bit kinder, huh?
‘Let’s show our children that it’s cool to be kind.’
Harry and Meghan, who have been vocal on environmental issues, were criticised after reportedly taking four private jet journeys in 11 days.
Sir Elton said he had provided Harry and Meghan and their baby son Archie with a private flight to ‘maintain a high level of much-needed protection’.
US chat show host Ellen DeGeneres also defended the royal couple.
She posting on Instagram: ‘I met Prince Harry and Meghan in England to talk about their work on wildlife conservation.
‘They were the most down-to-earth, compassionate people.
‘Imagine being attacked for everything you do, when all you’re trying to do is make the world better.’
On Monday, Harry and Meghan posted a quote by South Africa’s Archbishop Desmond Tutu on Instagram, urging their followers to overwhelm the world with ‘little bits’ of good.
It read: ‘Do your little bit of good where you are. It’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.’
