Did you know Meghan Markle was 'warned' about British tabloid culture by her friends before saying 'I Do' with Prince Harry?


The Duke Of Sussex Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot in attendance of the Royal family in May 2018 and made headlines for their fairytale-like wedding ceremony that was attended by the who's who of Britain and Meghan's friends, including Priyanka Chopra Jonas. The American actress, soon after the wedding, became the subject of media scrutiny with tabloids keeping a close tab on her activities, considering she is a member of the Royal family. However, this attention was something that Meghan aka Duchess Of Sussex was informed by her friends before she could say 'I Do' with Prince Harry. Meghan, during an interview with an international publication, told that since she is an American, she wasn't used to the culture of tabloid frenzy and added that her British friends had cautioned her regarding the side-effects of it. She further told that ever since the wedding took place, it has been complicated on the media front.

"When I first met my now-husband, my friends were really happy because I was so happy but my British friends said to me, 'I'm sure he's great but you shouldn't do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life. And I very naively — I'm American. We don't have that there, I said, 'What are you talking about? That doesn't make any sense. I'm not in any tabloids.' I didn't get it. So it's been, yeah, it's been complicated," Meghan told during the interview.

Talking about her tryst with tabloids, Duchess Of Sussex, sued a British tabloid for illegally publishing a private letter written by her for her father. Soon, Prince Harry jumped to her support and verbally attacked the publication for their misbehaviour with his wife. Prince, in a statement, addressed to the publication accused them of editing the letter to disguise 'lies' they have published about Meghan. Further adding he said that after sensationalising his late mother Princess Diana's death in 199, his wife has now become a victim of the tabloid. "There comes a point when the only thing to do is to stand up to this behaviour, because it destroys people and destroys lives. Put simply, it is bullying, which scares and silences people. We all know this isn't acceptable, at any level. We won't and can't believe in a world where there is no accountability for this. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces," Prince Harry wrote in a statement as per reports.
