It’s official! Prince Harry confirms he’s in a serious relationship with actress Meghan Markle. With the announcement, he shares he’s concerned about her safety and that the media has crossed the line! Details inside….
We told you Prince Harry had a new girlfriend. Now, it’s official.
Today, the 32-year-old British royal issued a statement to confirm he’s dating “Suits” actress Meghan Markle. But that’s not all he had to say. He went IN on the media and cyber bullies for harassing Meghan and her mother.
The prince reportedly instructed Kensington Palace to issue a one-page letter via his communications secretary, Jason Knauf, addressing his relationship and those spewing hate and racists comments. It reads:
"The past week has seen a line crossed. 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."
Prince Harry fears for her safety and privacy now that everyone knows they’re in a relationship. So, he has issued security agents to keep Meghan and her mother safe. The letter continued:
"Some of it has been hidden from the public — the nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers; her mother [Doria Ragland] 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."
“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."
Several media outlets have written up stories with racial undertones. (FYI -Meghan’s mother is black and her father is white). Being that Meghan, 35, was born in L.A. and her mother wears dreadlocks, several media outlets have disrespectfully drawn up stories with harsh criticism.
By the way, the Royal Family issuing such a statement now allows for Meghan to be protected under the Family's secret security, this according to ABC News.
Prince Harry goes against the grain drawing up such a statement, but it’s definitely much needed. The letter concludes:
"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. “
That’s right Prince Harry! Clap back at the racist trolls who continue to spread their hate. Why won’t they let them live?!
