While it was just a rumor last week, actress Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are indeed a couple, and Prince Harry is not happy about the way the media and racist trolls have been treating her about it.

In a new statement, Prince Harry has attacked the “racial undertones” of press coverage of his girlfriend, stating that “a line has been crossed”:

“But the past week has seen a line crossed. His 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.”

He also expresses concern for her personal safety, feeling that some of the press coverage has given licence to social media users, on platforms such as Twitter and in newspaper website comment sections, to troll Meghan, with racist slurs a particular worry:


“Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her. It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm.

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.”

Prince Harry is one of the most eligible bachelors in the world. Of course all of the white women are upset. Here’s to hoping that the media and racist bigots aren’t the downfall of their budding relationship. And if you’re interested, you can click here to read the full letter.
