The Duke of Sussex has finally had enough of the hate, and is issuing a statement in response to the horrible treatment of Meghan Markle in recent tabloids.
What’s up guys, it’s Emile Ennis Jr. back here on Clevver News, and the Royal family is in a royal uproar, soooo this is my fair warning to the British tabloids that you best call up your biggest lawyers because Prince Harry has officially had it up to HERE... and to give you a point of reference, “here” is, like, reallllllllly really high.
I’m not quite sure if it’s her newfound fame, or the fact that it’s Prince HARRY, ORRR, the fact that she is now set for life with a giant castle, but the British tabloids have been overbearingly spreading false rumors and fake “facts” about the Duchess, and it’s time to put an end to the madness.
And who better to come to Meghan’s defense than her loving and supportive hubby, who has had enough of the toxic headlines… so much so that he’s taken a powerful stance and issued a public statement on behalf of his family.
In the statement published to the Duke and Duchess’ website yesterday, Harry explained QUOTE, “Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences – a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son.”
He then went on to say that he and Meghan have QUOTE, “…continued to put on a brave face – as so many of you can relate to – I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been.”
The royal family’s statement comes just days after it was reported that the bullying had gotten so bad, that the couple has taken legal against British tabloid The Mail.
For months, this tabloid has creating lie after lie at Meghan’s expense because she has not been visible while on maternity leave.
Furthermore, the privacy claim being filed is specifically in regard to the outlet’s article of a private handwritten letter Meghan sent to her father, Thomas Markle, about selling stories to the media a week before she and Harry’s wedding.
In the weeks surrounding the royal wedding, Thomas Markle sold stories about his alleged “heart attack” and even staged photos with the paparazzi…
But what might be the most impactful reason for taking legal action, was Harry’s point about his own personal fear that should the bullying and hounding of his wife continue, history will repeat itself, and I didn’t want to have to bring this up, but the paps leave no choice...
This same heartbreaking instance occurred when Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, was being chased by paparazzi, resulting in a massive traffic collision when her car slammed into a wall and killed everyone on impact.
Harry is doing everything he can to ensure that the same thing doesn’t happen to Meghan.
He further stated, “I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditized 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.”
The royal couple also added in their statement, QUOTE, “We believe in media freedom and objective, truthful reporting. We regard it as a cornerstone of democracy and in the current state of the world – on every level – we have never needed responsible media more.”
But over the past few months, or actually what feels like the day Meghan Markle stepped onto the scene, many other outlets have been releasing articles with false statements.
The Sun also published an article just last month, detailing a feud between Prince Harry and Prince William.
Another article along the same lines was posted by The Cut almost a year ago, stirring rumors that Meghan and Kate Middleton were feuding.
The detailed article broke down every rumor related to the feuds between the two families, claiming that uncredited “sources” had revealed most of this information to the outlets…
Although the article brought up the rumors, it was quick to shoot down rumors claiming that there had been “tension” between the two brothers, adding that no further details about what might be causing the tension.
But before I continue to ramble on about this topic, I’m gonna stop myself right here and turn it over to you guys.
Do you think Harry and Meghan will win their case, and could this be the turning point in putting new rules on British tabloids? Get to talking down here in the comments.
