Prince Harry took the world media by storm as he slammed the British press earlier this week in a detailed statement about the coverage his wife Meghan Markle has received ever since she stepped into the royal family. Terming it as bullying, Prince Harry called out a British tabloid for publishing a private letter which the Duchess had written to her estranged father Thomas Markle shortly after their wedding. Harry's efforts to protect his wife echoed similar sentiments to that of Prince William when he had taken steps to make Kate Middleton's a life little easier.

In a noteworthy statement referencing to his late mother Diana, Prince Harry wrote, "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." He also added, "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." 

The statement reminds of the time when Prince William had taken similar actions against the press to protect his wife. It was released after Kate's topless photos were taken during their 2012 vacation and published by a French magazine. Their official statement read, "Their Royal Highnesses have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner. The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to The Duke and Duchess for being so."
