Prince Harry’s Lawsuit Against the British Press

Prince Harry’s Lawsuit Against the British Press

There’s only so far that you can push a person before they snap back and apparently, Prince Harry has reached his breaking point.

Since Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, first began publicly dating, the British media has been extremely hard on them as a couple. Many outlets have seemed focused on making sure Markle was painted in the most negative light possible. No matter what she did, be it wearing jeans to Wimbledon or hugging Beyonce when she met her at the European premiere of The Lion King, it was all the end of the world, according to certain publications.

Well, Prince Harry has finally had enough.

Normally, the royal family is pretty quiet when it comes to all of the rumors that are floating around about them. But in this case, it got so bad that Harry had to take legal action.

On Oct. 1, he released a statement regarding his lawsuit.

“As a couple, we believe in media freedom and objective, truthful reporting,” he wrote. “We regard it as a cornerstone of democracy and in the current state of the world – on every level – we have never needed responsible media more.”

“Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences – a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son.”

For Harry, the lies spread in the media posed a threat that he could not ignore.  

“There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face – as so many of you can relate to – I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been,” he continued. “Because in today’s digital age, press fabrications are repurposed as truth across the globe. One day’s coverage is no longer tomorrow’s chip-paper.”

He went on to defend his wife and announce the lawsuit.

“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.”

What is Prince Harry suing for?

He's mad and he's been mad since he was a child Because he believes that unwarranted and unfair publicity was the cause of his mother's untimely death.
