Are you fed up with the media hounding Harry and Meghan or do you think it is justified?
Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May 2018 was marked by an outpouring of affection in Britain, but less than a year later they found themselves on the receiving end of a barrage of negative stories in the media.
They have ranged from their alleged feuds with Prince William and Kate Middleton to their celebrity-like behaviour, to the young couple’s home being renovated with 2.4 million pounds of taxpayers’ money to reports of Meghan being dubbed “Duchess Difficult” by palace insiders for her “string of demands,” and more recently, for taking frequent luxury flights.
Harry’s popularity with the public has always been incredibly favourable especially when he was serving in the Army, even though his every move as a young royal was scrutinised.
Many royal fans thought that the harsh scrutiny would stop for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they became parents. However, they gave birth to their son four months ago and the negative reports have not stopped at all.
It would seem that everything the royal couple now do is under scrutiny and criticism, laced with negativity from the media, who seem to be on a mission to discredit the couple in everything they do.
Princess Diana’s tragic death in 1997 has often been used as an example of when the media goes too far. She was one of the most famous women in the world who passed away after a car chase with the paparazzi. However, singer Elton John — who was a close friend of Princess Diana — is seeing a lot of disturbing signs recently that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are going through a similar problem.
What are your views? Is the negativity portrayed in the press necessary or destructive? Is it time for the press to change its reporting angle? Do you believe what you read in the press?
