Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, have been a constant subject of criticisms since they tied the knot on May 19, 2018. The harsh treatment and persistent attack on the Royal couple started to hurt Harry and Meghan that the former made a move to protect his wife. While this sweet gesture impressed fans, some members of the press were not pleased about how he handled the situation.
The Sun journalist Jane Moore stated that Prince Harry need not use Princess Diana "as a weapon" to defend himself and his wife. She said that the former wife of Prince Charles never judged the press "by the actions of a few," even if she had received several criticisms during her time. The Princess of Wales was even close to some media personalities.
"It's such a shame because, until now, the success of their tour of South Africa suggested that Harry and Meghan had finally turned a corner in their tricky relationship with the media," Moore wrote. "But many of the royal reporters who penned that positive spin are now feeling bruised by the couple's accusation of "double standards," she went on.
On Wednesday, Prince Harry finally broke his silence about the hateful comments and disparagements about Meghan Markle via an official statement. The younger brother of Prince William even wrote that he witnessed how the Duchess of Sussex has been silently suffering from the "permanent abuse" and "harassment" by British tabloids.
The second son of Princess Diana added that the media had overstepped their boundaries and infringed Meghan's copyright when they published her private letters to her estranged father, Thomas Markle Sr. Moore retorted that, if Prince Harry and the former "Suits" actress want to protect their privacy from the members of the press, they should consider stepping down as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Moore even alleged that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are misguidedly living their lives as celebrities and not as Royal personalities for hiring showbiz lawyers at Schillings, which is known for helping big stars who try to hide their wrongdoings from publication. The Royal couple's camp has not yet said a word about Moore's recent statements.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have, reportedly, funded the legal proceedings against the Mail on Sunday newspaper. The Royal couple, represented by the Schillings, decided to file charges against the publication for the alleged misuse of private information, infringement of copyright and breach of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
