Prince Harry Thinks the Media Is Terrified of Meghan Markle
After working and living within the confines of the British royal family for his entire life, Prince Harry has completed his last official royal engagement as a senior working royal. As of April 1, 2020, the Duke of Sussex and his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex will be private citizens seeking financial independence.
There are a number of reasons why the Sussexes have decided to take such drastic measures. The first reason is that Meghan, a mixed-race American woman was constantly bullied during her time in The Firm. Meghan endured sexism and racism at every turn. Additionally, once the Sussexes had their son, Archie Harrison, they knew they wanted to protect him at all costs.
Now, in a leaked phone call, Prince Harry has revealed that he believed the British media is terrified of the Duchess of Sussex.

Shortly after Megxit was announced in January 2020 — the duke gave a moving speech at a dinner for his charity, Sentebale. He revealed that it was ultimately his choice to step away from royal life.
“The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly,” he said.“It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven’t always got it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option.”
Now in a leaked phone call where two Russian pranksters, Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyaro posed as Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg, and her dad Svante — Prince Harry has revealed that having his son was also a major factor in Megxit.
“It’s, that’s probably a conversation for another time, there’s lots of layers to it and lots of pieces to the puzzle,” the prince reportedly said. “But sometimes the right decision isn’t always the easy one. And this decision certainly wasn’t the easy one but it was the right decision for our family, the right decision to be able to protect my son.”
Prince Harry is very upset with the British media
Prince Harry has always had a bad taste in his mouth with the media because of his mother, Princess Diana’s tragic death. We also saw first hand how he struggled with the princess’ death during his wilder teen years and into his early 20s.
“You’ve looked out for me for so long, but the media is a powerful force, and my hope is one day our collective support for each other can be more powerful because this is so much bigger than just us,” he said in his speech for Sentebele.

One of the more revealing things that came out of the Duke of Sussex’s leaked phone call is how he feels the media views his wife.
“For most, all of my life, I’ve always been part of a family and part of a country that is scared of the tabloid media because they have so much power and influence and no morals (laughs),” he explained. “From the moment that I found a wife that was strong enough to be able to stand up for what we believe in together, has basically scared them so much that they’ve now come out incredibly angry, they’ve come out fighting, and all they will try and do now is try and destroy our reputation and try and, you know, sink us. But what they don’t understand is the battle we are fighting against them is far more than just us. Even though they want to make it personal they are scared because we are some of the first two people willing to stand up to their bullying and my wife, we can’t stand back. It hasn’t been very nice. It’s been horrible but we will come out of it stronger people.”
