The statement has Prince Harry explaining that while he and his wife "believe in media freedom," they won't stand by and watch while they become the victim of a "false" and "malicious" propaganda. 

The Prince labeled the act a form of bullying while writing that his wife is "one of the latest victims" of a British media outlet that lodges a "ruthless campaign" against people without any thought for the possible consequences.
