Prince Harry has issued a statement through the Kensington Palace Communications team. This is regarding the abuse that Meghan Markle is getting from the press. Ever since news of their secret romance erupted, Meghan has been the subject of abuse and harassment, according to the statement. It also mentioned nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of the papers. There are even trespassing attempts from reporters and photographers to the Suits star?s home.
?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,? read the statement.
With Prince Harry taking action, he revealed not only that he is indeed in a relationship with the American actress, but also that he is quite serious with her.
Single since 2014 when he parted ways with ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas, the public asks what could have attracted Harry to the brunette star. Markle is a divorcee who used to be married to Trevor Engelson in 2011, and was later on linked to golfer Rory McIlroy in 2014. She has also been in the news for the rather raunchy scene she shot in Suits, where she?s seen almost naked while having sex in the copy room with co-star Patrick J Adams.
But beyond her celebrity life, Markle is actually a World Vision ambassador and an UN Advocate for Women. She is also the founder of a lifestyle brand, Tig.com, which is involved with love of travel, food, fashion, beauty and humanitarian work.
Prince Harry met the star while he was in Canada to promote the Invictus Games for disabled servicemen. It has been speculated that Markle?s likeness to the late Princess Diana?s humanitarian work is what mostly attracted the prince to the star.
With Prince Harry?s latest action though, it?s seen as making the situation even worse for Markle, now that their relationship has been confirmed. The star will be hounded even more now, and even bookies have cut an odds of 3 to 1 that there will be a wedding next year.
