Prince William speaks out in support of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship

It seems the Prince supports his brother's plea for Meghan Markle's privacy to be respected

It looks as though Prince William has given Prince Harry his full support over the release of the statement confirming this relationship with actress Meghan Markle and asking that her privacy was respected.

The Telegraph reports that Kensington Palace has issued a statement, apparently at the Duke of Cambridge’s request, to say that he fully supports Prince Harry’s decision to go public with the relationship.

The statement reportedly read: ‘The Duke of Cambridge absolutely understands the situation concerning privacy and supports the need for Prince Harry to support those closest to him.’

The Telegraph also reported that a royal source said: ‘[Prince William and Prince Harry] don’t issue statements like that without talking to each other, and they talked about the Meghan Markle statement extensively in advance of it being put out.

‘The Duke was as alarmed as anyone about what was happening to Meghan. No one wanted to have to put that statement out, including Prince Harry, and there was concern about confirming the relationship.

‘But over the course of one weekend things escalated to the extent that Prince Harry felt he had to act.’

After Prince Harry confirmed his relationship with Meghan Markle in an open letter last week, Markle has now broken her silence… via Instagram (before you get excited, it’s not a couple selfie with Harry).

The post, which is an image from the actor, writer and blogger’s lifestyle site, The Tig, features a quote from Gandhi that reads, ‘be the change you wish to see in the world’.

‘A favorite from @thetigofficial! Sending some extra love today to Emily, Sol, Domi, Hannah, Sih, Doris, JessyScarlett and all of you who have been so supportive for years. I’ve missed you guys ❤️#bethechange #TheTig,’ she captioned the image. Decipher what this means at your leisure.

Prince Harry has broken his silence on Meghan Markle, confirming his relationship with the 35-year-old actress whilst simultaneously lambasting the public harassment of his girlfriend.

In a highly unusual move, Prince Harry has issued a strongly worded statement by way of his communications secretary, hitting out at the ‘wave of abuse and harassment’, adding that he is ‘worried’ for Markle’s safety.

In a statement released on the official Kensington Palace Twitter page, the release outlined the severity of the situation: ‘Some of this has been very public – the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments.’

Yes, everyone’s favourite Prince (sorry Wills) is dating Amercian actress Meghan Markle. So it looks like it’s back to Tinder for us.

Apparently the two met in Canada during Harry’s promotional tour for the Invictus Games, and a source has claimed the Prince is ‘besotted’ with the Suits star.

However, things have taken a bit of a turn, with Harry reportedly cancelling a flight to see Meghan in Canada.

According to Mail Online, Harry was booked on a British Airways flight from Heathrow on Monday, but he cancelled it just hours before he was due to leave after the news of this burgeoning new romance broke.

However, it seems like this could just be a temporary blip, as the ‘couple’ seem pretty into each other. In an interview with The Express, an anonymous source close to the Prince revealed that ‘he’s happier than he’s been for many years.’

‘They are taking each week as it comes and just enjoying each other’s company but it’s fair to say that they love seeing each other and there’s a definite chemistry between them,’ the source added.

‘Harry has been desperate to keep the relationship quiet because he doesn’t want to scare Meghan off. He knows things will change when their romance is public knowledge but he also knows he can’t keep it a secret for long.’

‘It’s too early to say if the relationship will lead to anything long-term but who knows? At the moment they are just taking it a step at a time and seeing how things develop,’ said the source.

However, new rumours report that the 35-year-old Suits actress has already met the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and has made several secret visits to the United Kingdom to see Harry.

Meghan was spotted at Wimbledon supporting her friend Serena Williams in both June and July, and just this month has been staying at private members club Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire.

Kensington Palace have declined to comment on the rumoured romance as it is a ‘private matter’, but with any luck we could soon be seeing photos of Hazza and Meghan in the royal family album.
