Twitter cheers Prince Harry standing up for his wife Meghan Markle against the relentless attacks from the British press, as they announce they’re suing the Daily Mail and its parent company.
Prince Harry slammed the Daily Mail, accusing the tabloid of publishing and altering a private letter she wrote to her father. “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,” he wrote in a scathing statement.
The tabloid is accused in the couple’s lawsuit of copyright infringement, misuse of private information, and breach of the Data Protection Act 2018.
Prince Harry also invoked Princess Diana’s untimely death at the hands of the paparazzi: “I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.”
Many have said the attacks on the Duchess of Sussex is racially motivated because she is biracial. Piers Morgan, who is one of the editors at the Daily Mail, has been especially vicious towards her, even egging on her father, Thomas Markle, and half-sister Samantha Markle, in their attacks.

The fact Prince Harry is the only BRF member that has public defended Princess Meghan from the racist, xenophobic, & misogynistic British Media is really something.The rest of his family stood by & watch her get bullied while majority of the public & his/her friends supported her pic.twitter.com/fm8WXSkgwT

Yes, this is a game changer, Harry means business, tell your colleagues in the media it's a new day, Prince Harry is more determined than ever to protect his wife and child, unlike his mother who did not have a husband to defend her like that because that was a different time. https://t.co/cY5xdItINi
