PRINCE HARRY TAKES LEGAL ACTION TO PROTECT HIS WIFE

Prince Harry has announced that he is filing a lawsuit against a British tabloid, "Mail on Sunday" that has targeted the Duchess, and illegally published a private handwritten letter from her father without her permission.

PRINCE HARRY SPEAKS OF PRINCESS DIANA

For Prince Harry, the press' hounding of his wife is bringing back traumatic memories of his own mother, Princess Diana, who was harried and pursued by unscrupulous journalists. He wrote:

“My deepest fear is history repeating itself. I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.”

Princess Diana was killed in Paris in a car crash in 1997 while she was being chased by paparazzi. She was only 36, two years younger than the 38-year-old Duchess Meghan.

PRINCE HARRY WAS SLAMMED FOR "GREED AND SELFISHNESS" SPEECH

During his African tour with his wife and son, Prince Harry delivered a speech in Malawi that has sparked off a storm of criticism.

The Prince spoke at a national park in Malawi, and his theme was how to increase global efforts for the environment and sustainability.

Prince Harry pointed out that the chief impediment to conservation were financial interests:

“Conservation used to be a specialist area, driven by science. But now it is fundamental to our survival and we must overcome greed, apathy, and selfishness if we are to make real progress.” 

The speech did not sit well with many, and received harsh criticism, with netizens pointing out that he is hardly the person to speak of greed or selfishness since he is a prince, born to wealth, power and privilege.
