The Fine Gael Senator who chaired the Oireachtas committee on the Eighth Amendment has deleted a tweet that said the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, was pleased by the result of Ireland’s abortion referendum.
After meeting the duchess at the British ambassador’s residence in Dublin on Tuesday, Senator Catherine Noone tweeted: “The Duchess and I had a chat about the recent referendum result — she watched with interest and was pleased to see the result.”
