It surely seems that Prince Harry is not happy at all with the remarks that have been made about his new girlfriend, Meghan Markle. The Prince, in an unusual move, decided to release a statement to confirm his relationship with Meghan and claim that the Suits star has been subjected to racist and sexist abuse ever since their romance was revealed.
Without a doubt, Meghan has been dealing with a lot of media attention since rumors first emerged to indicate that she and Prince Harry were a thing. Well, it seems that things have been so bad that Harry actually worries about Meghan and her safety. In his statement, Prince Harry claimed that Meghan has been subjected to a “wave of abuse and harassment.”
The statement was released by Prince Harry’s communications secretary. It indicated that Prince Harry is grateful for the support he receives from the public and knows that he is fortunate. He also is aware that the public is much interested and curious about his personal life, although this is not simple for him.
“He has never been comfortable with this, but he has tried to develop a thick skin about the level of media interest that comes with it. He has rarely taken formal action on the very regular publication of fictional stories that are written about him and he has worked hard to develop a professional relationship with the media, focused on his work and the issues he cares about,” the statement said.
The statement went on to add that things have been exaggerated in the past week. “His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment. Some of this has been very public — the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments,” the same statement said.
It said that photographers have tried to enter Meghan’s home and even offered some bribes to people close to the actress to tell stories about her. Everyone in her life, including friends and co-workers, have been approached by the media. This is the reason why Prince Harry is worried for her. “It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm.” Prince Harry asked for the statement to be issued, hoping that people will understand.
