Prince Harry finally admitted to dating actress Meghan Markle but that was not all, he also took it upon herself to defend his lover against all the online hate she received lately. He felt like he had to address some issues with the type of harassment she went through which was of a sexist and even racist nature.
The statement was posted on Twitter in the form of an official letter from the handle @KensingtonRoyal. Aside from the letter, the tweet read: “Kensington Palace has issued a statement this morning about the harassment currently being experienced by Meghan Markle and her family.”
In the official statement released though a spokesperson the Prince expressed his disdain and disapproval of such actions:
“The past week has seen a line crossed. [Harry‘s] 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.”
“It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm,” the statement continued. “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.”
We have been thinking that the two were in a relationship but it is only now official. The two have been seen together before, on a private jet going to Canada and even attending a Halloween party at the actress’s house. They would even take care of her dogs together like a family would.
It didn’t take much before she started being criticized and attacked, even by her own sister who claimed Meghan was unfit for the Royal family and the fact that she was using him to acquire more fame was even more of a shocker. The sister just went out and made public Meghan’s relationship with her family and claimed Harry and her would not last.
“The royal family would be appalled by what she’s done to her own family. The truth would kill her relationship with Prince Harry. He wouldn’t want to date her anymore because it puts her in a bad public light. I certainly don’t think Harry or his family would want to associate with her afterwards.”
