Lady Colin Campbell has alleged Meghan Markle is “poking” her nose into other people’s business after she “reached out” to tennis player Naomi Osaka. The Japanese tennis champion is taking a mental health break from the court and has received praise from a number of celebrities including the Duchess Of Sussex.
Lady Colin addressed a question from a fan on her YouTube channel over whether “it is appropriate” for celebrities to reach out to public figures “who are dodging their professional responsibilities”.
The former I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here contestant said: “Yet again Meghan ‘reached out’ … it use to be called, ’Pushing your nose in everybody else’s business’ but I suppose now we live in a truly George Orwellian age and euphemism is hyperbole and vice versa.
“I suppose poking your nose in everybody else business is ‘reaching out’,” she claimed.
After the tennis star withdrew from the French Open last month, Meghan was just one of the many famous names to offer Naomi support.
Naomi revealed that the famous figures who stood by her, included Michelle Obama, Michael Phelps, Steph Curry and the Duchess of Sussex.
Meghan and her husband Prince Harry have long championed the importance of speaking out regarding mental health and have recently shared their own experiences managing their emotional well-being during royal life.
Naomi typed in a personal essay for Time magazine: “I want to thank everyone who supported me.
“There are too many to name, but I want to start with my family and friends, who have been amazing.
“There is nothing more important than those relationships. I also want to thank those in the public eye who have supported, encouraged and offered such kind words. Michelle Obama, Michael Phelps, Steph Curry, Novak Djokovic, Meghan Markle, to name a few.”
Naomi also reiterated her decision to not participate in a press conference for the French Open (and eventually withdraw from the tournament as a whole) wasn’t meant to be seen as a stand against the press and media at large.
“This was never about the press, but rather the traditional format of the press conference. I’ll say it again for those at the back: I love the press; I do not love all press conferences,” Naomi explained.
“I have always enjoyed an amazing relationship with the media and have given numerous in-depth, one-on-one interviews. Other than those super-stars who have been around much longer than I (Novak, Roger, Rafa, Serena), I’d estimate that I’ve given more time to the press than many other players over recent years.”

She continued, “I always try to answer genuinely and from the heart. I’ve never been media-trained, so what you see is what you get.
“The way I see it, the reliance and respect from athlete to press is reciprocal. However, in my opinion (and I want to say that this is just my opinion and not that of every tennis player on tour), the press-conference format itself is out of date and in great need of a refresh.
“I believe that we can make it better, more interesting and more enjoyable for each side. Less subject vs. object; more peer to peer.”
Naomi concluded her essay by stating that after having time to rest, she’s looking forward to competing at the Olympics in Tokyo later this month.
In response to her comments regarding the press, Lady Colin claims it is less about her mental health and more to do with “dodging” difficult questions.
Speaking on public figures who shun the media, she claimed: “They should see a psychiatrist to cope with the effects of fame but by the look of it, all they’re trying to do is dodge a discomforting situation and yes it is uncomfortable, but how do you think you develop character in life?
“You face your challenges and you learn to hit back as and when it is appropriate. It’s called growth.”
