Prince Harry and Meghan Markle warning to friends no talk to the press and media, if you talk to the
Culled from Daily Mail
The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle may be getting used to all the new Royal rules she has to follow, but now she and Prince Harry are setting some of their own, Daily Mail reported.
In recent times, the Royal couple has had to deal with the fallout of her father Thomas Markle complaining in media interviews that he was being ‘cut off’ by his daughter.
An insider told the Mirror that Meghan was ‘deeply hurt’ by the ‘increasingly desperate situation’ and royal aides were reported to have held top-level crisis meetings.
And now, according to Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl, Meghan and Prince Harry have issued their own rule.
Citing a source, Nicholl says that the Prince is trying to shield Meghan from too much exposure to the media.
‘He worries there is too much hysteria around Meghan and he wants to row back a bit,’ the source said.
Nicholl goes on to say how the couple has told friends to avoid speaking to the media, with Harry reportedly clamping down on his friendship group and telling Meghan to follow suit.
‘They both expect a code of silence. If you talk to the press you’re out,’ the source said.
‘Harry didn’t used to care that much about what was written (in the press), he just said it was a load of sh**e, but he’s very protective of Meghan and defensive these days.’
Royal editor Camilla Tominey told Nicholl that Harry has constructed an ‘emotional fortress’ around himself and his wife.
‘Harry has certainly built an emotional fortress around himself and Meghan. They have both been extremely upset by Thomas Markle’s behavior and that of Meghan’s half sister, Samantha,’ she said.
Nicholl concludes by noting that the couple appear to be responding by withdrawing from the spotlight and preparing to spend more time in the Cotswolds.
This comes after Daily Express royal correspondent Richard Palmer took to Twitterto argue that Meghan Markle is being kept at a ‘distance’ from reporters.
He says that Royal rota journalists are ‘being kept further away from her [Meghan Markle] that we were before the wedding’.
He points out that this means they can’t hear what she said and therefore can’t get direct quotes: ‘If you can't get direct quotes from members of the Royal Family that often makes for dull stories' adding this ‘inevitably leaves you with little else to write about except what she wore and looked like’.
My view: Stop wasting your time because Meghan would make her friends leak stories that'll make her look good and appears as a victim, as she knows how to play the victim card very well. Even this so called warning to their friends, how did the story manage to reach the media, is it not supposed to be for the consumption of their friends alone. So it's okay for Meghan to ask her so called friends for benefit to tell the world that she asked her husband Harry to stop smoking and cut down on alcohol so they can start planing for a baby, she also ask them to leak to the press her expensive collection of shoes and that she likes spending money on expensive stuff like her Cartier watch before she met Harry after she was criticised for spending too much on very expensive clothes that sometimes look awful on her. So who also leak to the media that Meghan is meserable and her smiles were forced, it was her father because after talking to her father for the very last time, he immediately knew from her vioce and from what she told him, that's why Harry and Meghan are deeply hurt. My advice to Meghan, when you get pregnant don't tell anyone, keep it to yourselves, because the very moment you tell a third party, no matter how close the person/persons to you, then the story would definitely get out, do it when you're both ready. Prince Harry should be directing the warning to his wife as she can't help herself when it comes to asking her friends to help her talk as she's pretending to be happy. You don't really know your wife, she's just like her father Thomas Markle very smart at staging pictures and stories for public sympathy. Meghan didn't give up her Hollywood life for nothing and not to be able to say something, her friends will talk to the media on her behalf through other people. Besides Prince Harry should've known that he was getting married to a divorcee with baggage, oh well it's not his fault because she lied to him about her family and everything relating to her social life, until the Markles dirty linen were being washed in public. So, sorry Prince Harry we all love you, but you created the monster mess, you should've married a young 20-something year-old, who doesn't have loads of crappy bagage, who didn't lie to you, didn't send her ring by post to her ex husband she was with for 9-years married for 2-years, you shouldn't have married a woman that'll turn 40 in three years or is it 40-something. It's not your friends who are the problem Harry, it's your wife Meghan. She's the one blabbing to the press through her friends and father, but she's coyly and pretending to feud with her father and at the same time sending her PR machine to tell him what to say like when they offered to help him after his staged fake pictures exploded in the news, Thomas said they told him : 'You have offended the Royal Family but I can help you make an apology.' What a big mess?
