As Brexit's vengeance manifests itself, another issue has emerged that closely divides British society.
This week, Kensington Palace workers disrupted their silence about the unprecedented level of dishonest violence that recently hit both women in social media.
Sources said Hello! staff spent hours each week reducing sexist, racist and even violent comments on both kings.
• Money waste: $ 235 event
• Truth behind the "worst job ads"
• The wedding drama is worth $ 1.2 million
“Palace has always been watching the comments, but it is a very time consuming thing. They can block a few words, but some of them are pretty serious, ”published the source.
“Over the past year, with hundreds of thousands of comments, there were two or three violent threats.
“You can delete and report and block people and the police have opportunities around specific people. It is something you need to manage because there is no other way to control it. "
The news will not come as a shock to anyone who has recently seen posts on Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton, and Twitter comes out as an enemy of hate.
In fact, although many fan accounts have been created to celebrate the two royal wives, others have emerged that are dedicated to cutting them.
Hashtags #CharlatanDuchess, #megxit, and #moonbump have been used in recent weeks to destroy abuse and suppress former Suits star, with many anti-Meghan social media users who claim that the former actor has "fake" a pregnancy.
The Duchy of Cambridge also lacks offense, many criticizing her appearance and ethics.
But while online trolls are nothing new, the amount of abuse and the couple are focused on the vitriol level – this may be a symptom of psychological phenomena.
Counseling Psychotherapist Dr. Karen Phillip told news.com.au because of his personal experience, an individual can identify or react negatively to social people such as Kate and Meghan.
"People are very quick to judge, and we often combine our experience with the media, so many who feel treacherous, aggressive, family-friendly, especially from competing women, will react. There seem to be many who felt it, ”she said.
“We build our mind based on the information fragments that we choose to absorb, leaving other important pieces of information. We therefore accept the judgment and the vote that we believe to be true.
“We feel they are part of our family. We follow their lives, love, problems and achievements. ”
Meanwhile, psychologist and MindMovers Clinical Clinical Director Jaimie Bloch told news.com.au that the "BIRGING" phenomenon – or hiding in bright glory – also seemed to be a factor.
“This is when individuals associate themselves with someone they perceive as successful…. and note the success of this person, such as the same achievement, ”she said.
“When a person is attacked in the media, you also feel an attack and you become a defense. It's like someone who says something about you, and you have really intense emotions to protect a person.
"It's a tribe, a fight, or a reaction to a flight when you identify with someone who represents everything you want."
She said that the attacks on both kings were also proof of the long poppy syndrome that occurs when people try to discredit high-level people.
And she said support for the Duchy was also a matter of national pride, and the US would probably support Meghan from the US, while many of Kate fans provided support in the UK.
Dan Auerbach, a psychotherapist with associate advisors and psychologists in Sydney, said some people became "reactionaries" – and most likely trolls in social media – when the image they closely associate with stability, such as the royal family, was "threatened" . new person or event.
"When something or someone who does not meet our expectations, we can start to feel very unstable," he said.
"I think there is something about Meghan that does not meet people's expectations – she is an American actress who was previously married to two racial heritage, and many of these things may not meet people's hopes for kings."
"Another thing that can disrupt people is when they already feel excited about other events – such as domestic financial insecurity, politics, Brexit, or racial tension – they are starting to find their fears in one or one event.
"They can really think the threat comes from – they think," why do I feel so excited? Oh, that's Meghan – and they might feel that this person should stop or give up.
