The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry has accused British press of ‘bullying’ and running ‘relentless propaganda’ saying he feared Meghan Markle having to face same ‘powerful forces’ as his late mother Princess Diana.
In a lengthy emotional statement shared on Tuesday October 1, on his and Meghan’s official website, Harry said, his ‘deepest fear’ was his ‘wife falling victim to the same powerful forces’ that his mother faced.
He went further to say, ‘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.
The Duke of Sussex revealed that they have instituted legal action against the Mail on Sunday newspaper over the publication of a private letter ” Any proceeds from damages will be donated to an anti-bullying charity, Harry revealed which their lawyers said was “unlawful.”
“There comes a point when the only thing to do is to stand up to this behaviour, because it destroys people and destroys lives,” Prince Harry said. “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.”.
35-year-old Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana was one of the most photographed women on the planet after she got married into the British royal family. She died in 1997 when her car crashed in a Paris tunnel while being chased by photographers.
Harry said that losing his mom Princess Diana on the “public platform” affected his personal and public life, and consequently his mental health.
The Duke of Sussex, said in 2017. “I can safely say that losing my mom at the age of 12 and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years has had quite a serious effect on not only my personal life but also my work as well,”
The Mail on Sunday denied the claim, insisting they will be defending their case vigorously.
