Prince Harry Confirms Meghan Markle Relationship, Releases Statement Slamming Media Coverage

Prince Harry has just confirmed that he is dating Suits actress Meghan Markle, and in the statement, is condemning certain media outlets and trolls for the way she is being treated.

“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. Some of it has been hidden from the public – the nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers; her mother having to struggle past photographers in order to get to her front door; the attempts of reporters and photographers to gain illegal entry to her home and the calls to police that followed; the substantial bribes offered by papers to her ex-boyfriend; the bombardment of nearly every friend, co-worker, and loved one in her life,” Prince Harry‘s Communications Secretary said in a statement.

“Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her. It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm. He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘this is all part of the game’. He strongly disagrees. This is not a game – it is her life and his,” the statement continued. “He has asked for this statement to be issued in the hopes that those in the press who have been driving this story can pause and reflect before any further damage is done. He knows that it is unusual to issue a statement like this, but hopes that fair-minded people will understand why he has felt it necessary to speak publicly.”

    Why do people care so much about who famous people date. Give them a break people.

    Unfortunately Harry, they won’t listen. They’re blood hounds fighting to be the “first to report” for dollars.

    Comes with the territory. They did the same thing to Kate when she and William were dating. People will do anything to make a buck these days, it’s quite sad. Hopefully this doesn’t ruin a relationship. The media are ruthless unfortunately.

    Their PR teams must be working overtime. Prince Harry has other preferences, but this fake relationship helps promote a certain filthy agenda.

  • Paralyzed_Patriot

    I can tell all the royal palace PR plants are out in full force commenting at various entertainment sites. The same comment “themes” keep cropping up. It’s like they were all given the same talking points for this idiot Prince. If you don’t get it, go back the last few weeks and read.

    I really don’t give a shit about these two separately or together.

  • Gina

    They had a lot more respect for Kate.

    is she puerto rican?

    Half black, half white.

    Eh barely. They were pretty hard on her when she and William first went public. But Kate and Meghan know what comes with dating a prince. It sucks to be slated in the media, but it’s better to just ignore them. They know nothing.

  • Gina

    Well before Kate and William went public, they were dating in college and the media wasn’t that hard on her at the time. Harry and Megan hadn’t truly gone public before the media went in on Meghan with articles using coded racist language.

  • Madsxx

    That is very true. I think anyway we look at it’s bad, and the media really is a vile thing. But like I said I hope they don’t let a bunch on nobodies on a computer ruin their relationship.
