Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are currently in South Africa on their royal tour but back home in the UK, the royals have created a stir. The Duchess of Sussex is suing a British tabloid for publishing a private letter she had written to her estranged father Thomas Markle after her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018. Accusing 'The Mail' of publishing the letter, Prince Harry also accused the publication of editing the letter, a claim which the newspaper denies. 

In an unprecedented move, Harry slammed the British press and in an online statement wrote, "Unfortunately, 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." 

He also added that that he felt some reporting about his wife Meghan was "bullying". He feared "history repeating itself" -- an apparent reference to his mum Princess Diana, who was at the centre of undisputed fierce media attention and died in a car crash in Paris while her driver fled paparazzi.

"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," Prince Harry said. 

The Duchess is suing the publication and its parent company Associated Newspapers for over the misuse of private information, infringement of copyright and breach of the UK's Data Protection Act 2018. However, the publication has revealed that they stand by their story and will defend their case 'vigorously'.
