Ever since Meghan Markle joined the royal family, she and her husband, Prince Harry, have endured endless criticism. Recent public complaints about the use of private jets are only a small part of the problems they are facing. But Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are starting to fight back. While the Royals have always concealed criticism in the past, the Sussexes express themselves more than ever.
Prince Harry defended Meghan Markle before they were even married
We got the first clue that things would change when Prince Harry took the unprecedented step to defend Markle from attack when they first went out together. Kensington Palace issued a statement confirming the relationship and asking the media to leave Markle and her family in peace.
"Since his youth, Prince Harry has been aware of the heat that has spread to him from members of the public," the statement began. He went on to say that Prince Harry understands that people will be interested in his life. Although a bit uncomfortable, Prince Harry had never asked the media to step back.
The statement continued, "However, a limit was crossed last week. His girlfriend Meghan Markle was subjected to a wave of mistreatment and harassment. "All kinds of harassment by Markle were listed. Some attacks have been called "sexist and racist" security and are deeply disappointed that he could not protect them, "it said. While acknowledging that people would say that Prince Harry had to come to terms with this disruption, the statement was that he and Markle had a right to privacy.
Unfortunately, the statement has contributed little to the reassurance of news. They continued to receive a verdict during their engagement and their early married life.
Buckingham Palace Defended Sussexes Against Neighborhood Rules
After Prince Harry and Markle moved into Frogmore Cottage, they once again caught the attention of the media when it was reported that they imposed rules on all their neighbors. The sun claimed that a meeting had been scheduled for everyone living near Frogmore. Among other things, you should never start a conversation with the Sussexes, ask about Archie or offer babysitting.
Understandably, the region's neighbors and the general public were outraged by the rules. A king had never made such demands and it was considered unbelievably rude and self-centered.
Buckingham Palace entered to defend Prince Harry and Markle. "The Duke and Duchess did not request this, did not know about it and had nothing to do with the content or guidance provided," a palace official told US Weekly. Instead, they blamed "overprotected palace officials" on the overarching rules.
It was unusual for the palace to say anything about it. But most consider it a sign that the Sussexes and the rest of the palace were concerned about the constant criticism and attacks.
Prince Harry Defended His Family's Jet Mission
This month the Royals defended themselves again. Prince Harry and Markle were recently criticized for speaking in a Vogue magazine issue on climate change and environmental protection edited by the Duchess herself. They then flew with four private jets for a week, causing the public to call them hypocrites.
In a surprising move, Prince Harry responded to critics during a speech to launch his ecotourism project Travalyst. "I came here through advertising. I spend 99 percent of my life traveling commercially around the world, "he said of Prince Harry and Markle, who speak out against criticism, seem to become more regular, and many see this as a sign that they are tired of the media's comments. We may see them fighting back more often in the future, but only time will tell for sure.
