Prince Harry goes on warpath against press hounding of girlfriend

<p>Britain’s Prince Harry’s household has issued an unusually strongly-worded statement attacking the British tabloid press for their treatment of his latest girlfriend, Meghan Markle, an American mixed-race actress three years his senior.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Kensington Palace has issued a statement this morning about the harassment currently being experienced by Meghan Markle and her family. <a href="https://t.co/EuFZ4fmUIj">pic.twitter.com/EuFZ4fmUIj</a></p>— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) <a href="https://twitter.com/KensingtonRoyal/status/795931735443861504">November 8, 2016</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p>Markle is one of the stars of the long-running US TV hit “Suits”.</p> <iframe width="640" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/3FSeLYsj1K0?list=PLvpM8g0n-bFFYTN3edk9CAEe6EHNOvaGR" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> <p><a href="https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/nov/02/prince-harry-britain-race-royals">Some</a> of what the media has written is bad enough, but each article has provided space in the comments section for members of the public to have their say, and some of this material has gone well beyond the bounds of common decency. The prince’s mother was killed in Paris in a car crash in 1997 attempting to flee paparazzi. </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Exclusive: Meghan Markle shares her advice for success (she's so much more than just Prince Harry's girlfriend) <a href="https://t.co/md3P8MKPFa">https://t.co/md3P8MKPFa</a> <a href="https://t.co/guYNO8qDDC">pic.twitter.com/guYNO8qDDC</a></p>— Harper's Bazaar UK (@BazaarUK) <a href="https://twitter.com/BazaarUK/status/794873444387143681">November 5, 2016</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
