Why Is The UK Press Being Mean To Prince Harry And Meghan?
According to Reuters, the UK media has recently been tough on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, when it comes to press coverage.
Recent headlines like “Meghan Markle ‘pretty difficult’ person to deal with – ‘Harry is Miserable,’” suggest growing tensions between Harry’s wife and senior Windsors.
But some say that grueling press is almost like a rights of passage when you're a royal.
Sun photographer Arthur Edwards explained, “The press here in Britain is very aggressive, and they don’t hold back.”
Reuters says that Harry and Meghan's recent bad press may also stem from the royals limiting press to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding in May 2018.
Reuters adds, "...Some discontent among senior figures in the industry about the level of access to the royals who continue to be a huge draw for readers."
Geroge Clooney once commented about Meghan's bad press saying, "She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was and it’s history repeating itself.”
