Meghan Markle furious over claims about losing baby weight ‘we will be taking action’

Meghan Markle has been at the centre of a series of online adverts for ‘Keto Weight Loss’ tablets, where the campaigns attribute her weight loss to the diet pills. The ads use fake quotes claiming to be from the Duchess, where it states ‘keto body tone’ helped her return to her post-pregnancy figure. Buckingham Palace has vowed to stop the fake ads, with one royal source adding “action will be taken”, according to the Sunday Mirror.

First Level Fitness posted a fake quote on its site, which said: “Post pregnancy my body had lost its shape.

“But, with keto body tone, I came back.”

Another site promoting the same pills, quoted an interview with Meghan which claimed she “disobeyed the orders of Queen Elizabeth and other members of the Royal Family” to pursue her own weight loss line.

But the article attributes the interview to a US publication called Entertainment Today, which does not exist.

In response, the Sunday Mirror report that Buckingham Palace is fighting to stop the scammers from posting the fake adverts.

A royal source told the paper: “This is obviously not true and an illegal use of the Duchess’ name for advertising purposes.

“We will follow our normal course of action.”

Medical professionals have branded the pills as potentially dangerous and warned against taking them.

Tam Fry, chairman of the National Obesity Forum, said: “Nobody, but nobody, should go near diet pills advertised on the web – even when your favourite celebrity ‘endorses’ them.

“If you want to diet, it should be mandatory to seek advice from regulated professionals and use what they recommend.”

In another of the adverts, which uses the bogus Entertainment Today interview, Meghan is quoted fully endorsing the diet tablets as her “new weightless line”.

The quote said: “All my life I’ve been passionate about taking care of my weight due to the pressures of Hollywood to stay young and look fit.

“For the last 10 years I’ve been travelling the world and sourcing organic ingredients and weight loss remedies.

“The culmination is the launch of my all-female-owned weight loss line which combines the world’s richest and most sought after ingredients at affordable and everyday prices.”

But the article doesn’t stop there, it also uses quotes that state Meghan fell out with the Royal Family over her pursuit of the diet pills.

It said: “The Royal Family is not happy with me splitting my time up.

“They made me decide on which direction I was going to focus on the future.

“Being so turned off by the reaction of their power move I have decided to pursue my new weight loss line and dream.”

Another outrageous advert claimed Meghan wanted the pills to be her “passion project”, a phrase she used in a speech about the launch of her charity cookbook to raise money for the Grenfell community, because she is “obsessed over her weight”.

YouTube videos have also featured the fake campaign, using images of Meghan before and after her pregnancy to showcase the diet pills.

In reality, the Duchess has barely discussed her weight, or her diet publicly since reaching stardom for her role in American legal drama Suits and hasn’t discussed her weight since she began dating Prince Harry in 2016.

Before that, Meghan had only spoke of her diet a handful times, where she said she likes to following a clean, plant based-diet and works out regularly to maintain her lean figure.

Meghan isn’t the only royal to be targeted by the online scam, with sister-in-law Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, also being used by scammers to plug the pills.

Other celebrities caught up in the fake adverts include Cheryl Cole, Susanna Reid, Amanda Holden and Holly Willoughby.
