What Does Prince Harry Think of All of Meghan Markle’s Negative Media Attention?

Meghan Markle has been at the center of the media ever since she married Prince Harry. And over the past year, the tabloids have only become more brutal toward the Duchess of Sussex. While Meghan seems to be ignoring most of the tabloids and rumors, it’s impossible to entirely pretend the news stories don’t exist. But how does Harry feel about people constantly attacking his wife?

Harry and Meghan have had a fairly fast-paced romance

Harry and Meghan have started their lives up in a way that has some people shocked. In less than three years, the couple met, married, and will welcome a child. Harry and Meghan were introduced in July 2016, and by November 2017, they were engaged. They planned a wedding in six months and were married in May 2018. By October 2018, the couple had already announced a pregnancy. They will likely welcome a baby this month. The fact that the couple wasted no time dating, marrying, and starting a family has led some to question if there were ulterior motives behind the marriage (although there probably weren’t).

Ever since the two got married, there have been nonstop rumors about Meghan

When Meghan and Harry first started dating, people seemed to adore the two. The media were abuzz about the fact that Harry was dating an American — and a divorced one at that. But still, there were plenty of negative people who were not fans of Meghan. And once the two got married, the rumors became relentless. Meghan reportedly started a major feud with fellow duchess Kate Middleton, and she supposedly doesn’t treat her staff well. Of course, these are only rumors, which means there is a good chance they aren’t true. But eventually, even the strongest people can crumble under constant negativity.

Harry gets very angry over all of the rumors about his wife

Over the past week, a rumor surfaced that Meghan wasn’t allowed to borrow any royal jewelry because of her royal status. Since she is a bit lower on the totem pole than some other royal family members, an unnamed source said the queen forbid her from wearing anything royal. However, the rumor was quickly proven untrue, and Harry was reportedly very angry over the fact that the tabloids would make up such a story about his wife. Of course, he has a right to be annoyed — the rumors are finally getting the best of the royal couple, and it’s understandable as to why.

Harry is extremely protective of Meghan and hates the criticism  

Even before Harry and Meghan wed, he hated any negativity surrounding her. But once they were married, and things picked up, royal correspondents said Harry went all out to protect his wife from the negativity. Harper’s Bazaar reported the couple moved to Windsor Castle with the hope of getting away from the media. When Prince Charles and Princess Diana were going through a lot, Harry was unable to protect his mother. And the car accident that killed his mom was due to the paparazzi. Harry wants to protect his wife in a way that he couldn’t protect his mother, and he does his best to keep Meghan safe from the camera, the tabloids, and the countless rumors.
