Meghan Markle called Labor MP Holly Lynch to thank her for writing an open letter that 72 female politicians signed to support her with & # 39; unsavory & # 39; reporting.
Politicians, including Diane Abbott and Jess Phillips, wrote to the Duchess of Sussex, in which they said they were standing with her and related to her experience with negative reporting.
Mrs. Lynch, Halifax MP in West Yorkshire, led the campaign and was astonished when Meghan called to thank her.
She told ITV: & She called to thank myself and other female MPs for standing with her and to send the open letter saying that we, as women in public office, absolutely understand what she is going through.
& # 39; Although we are in solidarity with her in very different public roles and say that we should not tear down women in public life through the press or otherwise, so she was happy to have seen that letter. & # 39;
In the letter addressed to Meghan Markle (above), it was claimed that the MPs stood with her in front of the media
Halifax MP Holly Lynch tweeted the letter to her followers earlier today
The letter was sent by Holly Lynch and claimed that MPs & # 39; shared a term & # 39; with the duchess
She added that she & # 39; very worried & # 39; was over & # 39; incredibly sexist & # 39; reporting about the duchess.
& # 39; She's here, she's married to our prince, they have a young son, we want to welcome her into our society and I'm afraid that not all articles in our national press reflect that, and it's time to stop & # 39, she said.

Others who also put their name on the letter were the liberal democrat MP Angela Smith and the conservative MP Tracey Crouch.
The letter stated that & # 39; as female MPs of all political beliefs & # 39; the group wanted to stand & # 39; against stories they said they were & # 39; often unpleasant and misleading & # 39; were in a number of national newspapers in the UK.
It went on: & # 39; On occasions, stories and headlines have infringed your privacy and we have tried to disagree about your character for no good reason as far as we can see.
& # 39; Even more disturbing, we call out what can only be described as an outdated, colonial undertone of some of these stories.
& # 39; As female MPs of all backgrounds, we stand by the fact that it should not be allowed to remain untouched. & # 39;
The letter addressed that although the women had different lives in public interest, they shared an understanding of the & # 39; abuse and intimidation & # 39; that is used as a means to despise & # 39; women in public office & # 39; to continue their work.
& # 39; We expect the national media to have the integrity to know when a story is in the national interest and when it is trying to break down a woman for no apparent reason.

& # 39; We stand with you & # 39 ;: the letter from female MPs to the Duchess of Sussex
& # 39; As female members of political convictions, we wanted to express our solidarity with you by taking a stand against the often unsavory and misleading nature of the stories printed in our national newspapers about you, your character and your family.
Sometimes stories and headlines have infringed your privacy and we have tried to find out for whatever reason your character is.
In fact, we call out what can only be described as an outdated, colonial undertone of some of these stories. As women MPs of all backgrounds, we agree that it should not remain undisputed.
Although we find ourselves in a very different way as women in public life, we share the understanding of the abuse and intimidation that is now so often used as a means of discouraging women in public office from continuing with very important work.
With this in mind, we expect the national media to have the integrity to know when a story is in the national interest and when it is trying to break down a woman for no apparent reason.
You can assure us that we are in solidarity with you.
We will use the means at our disposal to ensure that our press accepts your right to privacy and shows respect, and that their stories reflect the truth. & # 39;

The letter from MPs comes after Prince Harry launched a tirade against the media during his recent ITV documentary.
Harry described the way he handles the pressures of his life as a matter of & # 39; constant management & # 39; and added: & # 39; I thought I was out of the woods and then it all came back suddenly, and this is something that I need to manage.
Deel Part of this work, and part of every work, like everyone else, is making a brave face and giving cheeks to many things, but again, for me and again for my wife, there are of course many things that hurt especially if most of it is not true.
& # 39; But all we have to do is focus on being real and focus on the people we are and stand up for what we believe in.
He added: & # 39; I am not being bullied to play a game that killed my mother. & # 39;
During the documentary, he also emphasized the behavior of the press and said it played a role in the public investigation that he and his wife Meghan Markle experienced.
In his statement, Prince Harry said he and Meghan believed in & # 39; media freedom and objective, truthful reporting & # 39; as a & # 39; cornerstone of democracy & # 39 ;.
However, he added that his wife & # 39; victim & # 39; had become the gossip press in a campaign he claimed to have escalated & # 39; relentlessly & # 39 ;.
He also said that such items & # 39; human costs & # 39; brought with him and said that his wife was now the same person as she was on our wedding day.
Harry also said that he talked about his struggle with mental health and how his mother's death affected him
Earlier this month, his wife Meghan launched legal action against the Mail on Sunday for a claim that the newspaper illegally published one of her private letters to her father Thomas.
The support of the MPs also comes when Ms. Markle's father on screen Wendell Pierce offered his support to the former actress, who said her mother Doria Ragland would have prepared her for the ugly side of the human nature.
He spoke to GM at ReB this morning about the struggles to be in the spotlight, he insisted that & # 39; millions take care of her & # 39; and revealed that at the last minute he had with the Duchess of Sussex, he told her: & # 39; Life is going to be very different. & # 39;
About the recoil that the Duchess received after the ITV interview in which she said she told Tom Bradby that she & # 39; not okay & # 39; , the actor added: & Remember in those difficult times that you have many people who care about you.
& # 39; And that you know, protocol, we probably won't have as much contact with each other as you think, but just know that you have a friend in me and that there are many people who care about you. & # 39;
Pierce also spoke about the Duchess's mother, Doria Ragland, as a woman who had prepared herself for difficult moments in life.
He said: “I'm sure her mother raised her well, so she prepared her for the ugly side of human nature, as women in color would teach their children, just as my parents taught me.
Wendell Mr. Pierce, 55, originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, and Robert Zane played in the long-term lawyer series, said Ms. Markle's mother would have prepared her for & # 39; the ugly side of human nature like any woman from color would teach child & # 39;
& # 39; There will be people who are not in your best interest, but they are not the people you are targeting, you are concentrating away from them. & # 39;
Ending up with a cheerful note, he joked that he would always be there to offer his support and said, & # 39; I am her TV dad! & # 39;
The words of Mr. Pierce came after the division of the Duchess of Sussex during a documentary following the first official engagement of the royal couple in Africa this year.
With Mr. Bradby, who asked how she adapted to the pressure of being royal, the duchess admitted that she & # 39; not okay & # 39; used to be.
She said: & look, every woman, especially when she is pregnant, you are very vulnerable and so that was made very challenging, and when you have a newborn, you know …
& # 39; And especially as a woman it is a lot. So you add this to just trying to be a new mother or a newlywed. & # 39;
