The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry has claimed that some ‘powerful forces’ who chased his mother, Princess Diana, to her death are also after his wife, Meghan Markle.
Naija News learnt that Prince Harry who is the sixth in the line of succession to the British throne made this claim in a strong-worded statement in which he said he feared history repeating itself.
Speaking on how the incident has affected him, and his young immediate family, he said:
“My wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences – a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son. There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face – as so many of you can relate to – I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been.”
Prince Harry said the newspaper had “purposely misled (readers) by strategically omitting select paragraphs, specific sentences, and even singular words.”
“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.”
Naija News recalls that 35-year-old Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana was one of the most photographed women on the planet after she got married into the British royal family. She died in 1997 when her car crashed in a Paris tunnel while being chased by photographers.
