The Internet Is Stanning How Much Prince Harry Makes Meghan Markle His Priority

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are taking their lives back. They are officially done living under the giant microscope that the British media has thrust upon them. On Wednesday, the couple announced that they would be stepping back from their positions as senior royals.

There had been rumors going around for months that this was something that the couple was thinking of doing, especially after how poorly Markle was treated in the media. But no one thought that Prince Harry would actually step back from his life as a royal. Now that he has, fans are going absolutely nuts over how much the royal has put his wife first.

Markle’s trouble with the media

From the moment that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got engaged, she began receiving bad press in the media. People accused her of being a crown chaser and just wanting to get with Harry for his notoriety and title. The media continued to scrutinize Markle all throughout her pregnancy. Eventually, Harry had enough and decided to sue the parent company of Mail on Sunday for publishing one of her private letters.

“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,” Harry wrote in a statement of why he was moving forward with the lawsuit. “Because in today’s digital age, press fabrications are repurposed as truth across the globe. One day’s coverage is no longer tomorrow’s chip-paper.”

Prince Harry and Megan Markle step down from royal duties

On Jan. 8, the Sussexes announced that they were officially stepping back from their royal duties.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” they wrote on their Instagram. “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.”

And they will now be spending a lot of time outside of the UK.

“We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages,” the statement continued. “This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.”

The internet reacts

Ultimately, people believed that Markle was a large reason that Prince Harry decided to step back from his position and most people agree that it’s for the best.

“Prince Harry has his mother’s spirit by heart,” one person tweeted. “The royal family has treated Meghan just as bad as they treated his mother, Princess Diana. Yall bullied her, including the UK media, until it was no longer tenable to stay. I don’t blame them for stepping away.”

“I’ll be blunt about this: #PrinceHarry and #MeghanMarkle have done the right thing for themselves and their child,” another person wrote. “I don’t blame them, frankly.”

“Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are a true representation of when a man loves a you he will follow you anywhere,” another person said.

“Prince Harry leaving royalty for Meghan’s well-being is KING behaviour, no way he’s doing a Princess Diana repeat,” a fan said. “We love to see it!”
