Meghan Markle has become a household name since marrying Prince Harry! The pair tied-the-knot in front of thousands of people and their wedding was viewed all over the globe.

Sadly, a story about Meghan Markle's friend is making headlines for a completely different reason. Apparently, Meghan's friend is being charged with a crime.

"A women's rights activist and close friend of Meghan Markle faces 20 years in a Saudi jail after allegedly confessing to conspiring with enemies of the nation. Loujain Al-Hathloul, 28, who once posed for a Vanity Fair shoot with The Duchess of Sussex, is among nine women held after a brutal crackdown in May," reported The Sun.

While Meghan most likely hasn't seen the young girl in a few years, she was still close at one time. It is truly sad to see what she is facing now. Details about her charges are still being reported.

"Al-Hathloul's arrest came two years after she attended a One Young World humanitarian summit with Meghan Markle, Emma Watson, Cher and Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau," reported The Sun.

This story is still developing and we hope to bring you more details. It is said to see this ending after a young woman so passionately fought for activism and change in the world. The summit she attended is a major event.

"One Young World invites young adults from all over the world who are actively working to transform the socio-political landscape by being the greater good," wrote Markle in reference to the summit.
