Prince Harry: Disturbing news from his lawyers

Prince Harry‘s lawyers spoke in the columns of the Daily Express on March 23. According to their words, the Duke of Sussex would be at his worst.

In January 2020, Prince Harry and his wife announced their intention to leave the royal family. A very unexpected news and made the effect of a bomb with the British. It is to get away from the media and protect his family that the Duke of Sussex took this decision. However, it seems that he has a lot of trouble with his new life because, like anyone who has been part of the royal family, his daily life interests the media. As indicated by his lawyers in the columns of the Daily Express on March 23, Prince Harry would be a victim of “prejudice, embarrassment and distress”. The reason? The publication of an article by The Mail on Sunday last February 20. In it, the tabloid refers to the legal battle of Meghan Markle‘s husband against the British Home Office. An initiative that he would have wanted to keep secret but was revealed in broad daylight. For his part, Prince Harry did not want to let it happen.

The relationship between the British press and the Sussex couple has often been very complicated and it is not the Duke of Sussex who will say otherwise. Following the publication of this article, he would have requested a “judicial review with the Home Office”, revealed The Mail on Sunday. The purpose of this? To highlight the fact that “police protection for him and his family will not be provided during their visits to the UK,” it says. The tabloid also reports that Meghan Markle‘s husband would have offered to “personally pay to have bodyguards, without ever advancing the sum.” A statement that, according to the media, suggests that he “expected the guarantee to be funded by taxpayers.” For his part, Prince Harry would have been “upset (but unfortunately not surprised) by the distortion of the facts,” explained his lawyers before adding that this is a “violation of the most basic journalistic standards and ethics. Revelations that will, no doubt, much to talk about it.

Prince Harry: why he filed a complaint for defamation?

Members of the Royal family are used to being the subject of rumors but also that their daily lives are spread in the British press. So, when this story of police protection came to light, Prince Harry followed the case. While he is accused of thinking that taxpayers would pay for his protection, his lawyers said that the idea that he wanted to keep the matter secret was “unduly and cynically a way of trying to manipulate and confuse public opinion with false statements about his willingness to pay for police protection,” it says. For his part, the Duke of Sussex has taken matters into his own hands and filed a complaint against the newspaper’s publisher. He also sought damages for defamation. “This is an attack on his honesty and integrity as well as causing him stress and emotional distress,” they said before adding that it “also harms his charitable and philanthropic work.”
