“I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful sources.”

 Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex

“Not many people have asked if I’m okay” 

Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex


According to a previous BBC News article, “The Duke of Sussex has begun legal action against the owners of the Sun, the defunct News of the World, and the Daily Mirror, in relation to alleged phone hacking.” This was due to the Daily Mail allegedly publishing a private letter to Markle’s father. 

In another BBC News article, Meghan shares that her friends warned her not to marry the Duke of Sussex. They had warned her that, “You shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life.” 

According to the same source, Prince Harry has compared the Media’s coverage of Meghan to the way his mother Princess Diana was treated. He called “the ruthless campaign” is history being repeated. 

In what seemed like a difficult moment, Meghan Markle admits that she has found media attention difficult. She and her husband Prince Harry have recently released a documentary, Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, where the public get an insight into the newly weds lives. 

In an interview with reporter Tom Brady, Markle hesitantly admits, “Any women, especially when they’re pregnant – you’re really vulnerable. So that was made really challenging. And then when you have a newborn, you know?” She said. She after added, “Thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay.”

Previously famous for her role in T.V show ‘Suits’, Markle married her now husband Prince Harry in May 2018. This showed to be a world wide celebrated event many seemed ecstatic about. However, there were some who did not share the enthusiasm for this shift in History. 

According to Vanity fair, Hilary Clinton has called the way Markle is being treated as “Inexplicable.” She believes that Meghan’s ethnic background has something to do with the unjust behaviour. “It’s certainly a part of it.” 

Journalism.London interviewed Richard Palmer, royal correspondent for the Daily Express. We asked, “Do you think Harry and Meghan are being treated unfairly by the British press?”

“I don’t think they are being treated unfairly. I think they are being treated like any other members of the royal family. To face public scrutiny, it can’t be nice, you wouldn’t want to if you really think about it. I think other members of the royal family have had similar treatment.”

Is the unethical treatment the young couple have fallen victim to just to be expected? Is the behaviour ‘appropriate’ simply because they are members of the Royal family?  

The Express shared that the royal biographer Angela Levine commented, “It is interesting that Harry and Meghan are advocating openness and honesty for better mental health.”

“But it seems that this week, that applies to everyone but the royals.”
