It has become a common theme that Meghan Markle always seems to get negative press in some sections of the British media and Prince Harry has had enough of it.
The straw that broke the camel’s back was the Daily Mail’s decision to publish a private letter sent by the Duchess of Sussex.
The couple have now moved forward with legal proceedings against the Daily Mail and its parent company Associated Newspapers.
In a statement on their website, Meghan Markle, through her representative, announced their intention to sue the tabloid, saying: “We have initiated legal proceedings against the Mail on Sunday, and its parent company Associated Newspapers, over the intrusive and unlawful publication of a private letter written by the Duchess of Sussex, which is part of a campaign by this media group to publish false and deliberately derogatory stories about her, as well as her husband. Given the refusal of Associated Newspapers to resolve this issue satisfactorily, we have issued proceedings to redress this breach of privacy, infringement of copyright and the aforementioned media agenda”.
Prince Harry also released a lengthy statement on the website where he called out the British tabloids for their constant negativity towards his wife. He also stated that they did the same thing to his mother and that he could do nothing about it then, but that he would stand against it now.
His statement read in part:
Though this action may not be the safe one, it is the right one. Because my deepest fear is history repeating itself. I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.
We thank you, the public, for your continued support. It is hugely appreciated. Although it may not seem like it, we really need it.
The reaction to the statement has been rousing as many have applauded Prince Harry for his bravery and for standing up for his wife in the face of such media scrutiny.
