Prince Harry Releases a Statement About Meghan Markle

Prince Harry Released Rare Statement About His Relationship With Meghan Markle

Prince Harry urged the press and public to respect the privacy of Meghan Markle and her family when the couple started dating. In a statement released via the Kensington Palace twitter account, Harry acknowledged the fact there is "significant curiosity about his private life", but stressed that a line has been crossed since news of his relationship broke.

It's rare for Harry, or any member of the British royal family, to discuss their private life, but in this instance, Harry explained that he fears for Meghan's safety, and felt he must speak out. The statement details not only the instances of harassment that we have seen (on the covers of newspapers and in opinion pieces and online comments) but also those that have been kept quiet, which include "nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of the papers," along with incessant harassment of Meghan, her family, friends, and even her ex-boyfriends.

As Harry pointed out, "this is not a game — it is her life and his."
