Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sue the Daily Mail and its parent company over its “relentless” attacks and for publishing a private letter she wrote to her father, Thomas Markle, after their wedding.
Prince Harry slammed the British media in a scathing statement, saying he is fearful for his wife’s life. “I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces,” he wrote.
Up to now, we have been unable to correct the continual misrepresentations – something that these select media outlets have been aware of and have therefore exploited on a daily and sometimes hourly basis.
It is for this reason we are taking legal action, a process that has been many months in the making. The positive coverage of the past week from these same publications exposes the double standards of this specific press pack that has vilified her almost daily for the past nine months; they have been able to create lie after lie at her expense simply because she has not been visible while on maternity leave. She is the same woman she was a year ago on our wedding day, just as she is the same woman you’ve seen on this Africa tour.
This particular legal action hinges on one incident in a long and disturbing pattern of behaviour by British tabloid media. The contents of a private letter were published unlawfully in an intentionally destructive manner to manipulate you, the reader, and further the divisive agenda of the media group in question. In addition to their unlawful publication of this private document, they purposely misled you by strategically omitting select paragraphs, specific sentences, and even singular words to mask the lies they had perpetuated for over a year.
There comes a point when the only thing to do is to stand up to this behaviour, because it destroys people and destroys lives. Put simply, it is bullying, which scares and silences people. We all know this isn’t acceptable, at any level. We won’t and can’t believe in a world where there is no accountability for this. Source: Sussex Official
The British tabloids have been attacking Meghan Markle even before they got married. It seems to be racially motivated because she is biracial. Piers Morgan, for one, has been especially vicious towards the Duchess since they couple announced their engagement. It is disgraceful on every possible level. I also believe her father and her half-sister, Samantha Markle, deserve to be sued as well. They are adding fuel to the fire by running to the Daily Mail.
