BREAKING: Prince Harry's Relationship with Meghan Markle is Confirmed
Speculation about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship began at the end of October, and now Kensington Palace has confirmed the pair are dating in a surprising statement.
“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,” it reads.
It adds, “Some of it has been hidden from the public - the nightly legal battle to keep defamatory stories out of papers; her mother having to struggle past photographers in order to get her to the front door; the attempts of reporters and photographers to gain illegal entry to her home and the calls to police that followed; the substantial bribes to her ex-boyfriend; the bombardment of nearly every friend, co-worker, and loved one in her life."
The statement also says, “He (Prince Harry) 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.”
Here's the statement in full:
It can’t be easy for the US actress given the high-profile status of her beau, and we hope that now the relationship’s been confirmed she’ll be given a little more privacy!
