Prince Harry Confirms Meghan Markle is His Girlfriend Defends Her Against Negative Press
Prince Harry confirmed his relationship with actress Meghan Markle yesterday with a statement slamming the “sexism and racism” she’s facing.
(Markle’s father is of Dutch and Irish descent; her mother is African-American.)
- “The past week has seen a line crossed,” the letter from Kensington Palace reads. “[Prince Harry’s] 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 continues, “Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her,. He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘’his is all part of the game.’ He strongly disagrees. This is not a game — it is her life and his.”
