Shortly after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their farewell to the British royal family, celebrities immeditaley raced to social media to throw some supportive sunshine on the situation.
The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil emerged as a major cheerleader of the couple, tweeting "And that folks, is what power looks like", placing a convincing crown emoji at the end of her message.
Others chose to rather gently reinforce the news as an act of support, such as fellow actress and friend of Markle's, Janina Gavankar, who shared the Instagram announcement on her stories.
Singer Bette Midler shared solicitude by saying: "What a sad story. They hounded and bullied her until it was no longer tenable to stay, just like Diana. They'll never learn until it hits them in the wallet."
The breaking news brought plenty for humor, too. Columnist Matt Chorley cracked a joke, tweeting: "Hang on, this means Meghan can play Meghan in The Crown, doesn't it", while Comedian Amy Schumer countered the news with an Instagram post, declaring she too was stepping down from royal duties.
