Wigan and Leigh MP show support for Meghan

72 female MPs including Wigan MP Lisa Nandy and Leigh MP Jo Platt have declared their "solidarity" with the Duchess of Sussex - saying she's having to deal with "distasteful and misleading" stories about her.

In an open letter to Meghan, the group from different parties says certain articles are outdated, and an invasion of her privacy. 

The duchess recently revealed that British friends told her not to marry Prince Harry because the tabloid press would "destroy" her life.
