Our thoughts are with the Duke of Sussex
Prince Harry has had a difficult few weeks, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex finding themselves in the middle of a full-on media storm after the recent private jet controversy.
Yes, the royal couple has received a tirade of online abuse, with media outlets and members of the public calling out their ‘eco lifestyle’ as hypocritical given how many private jets they have used this month. Not to mention, Prince Harry's wife Meghan Markle has endured a lot of online criticism, reportedly announcing recently that she was 'discouraged' by the 'high standard' people were expecting of her.
Prince Harry made headlines once more this week however for a different reason as it was revealed that he had received some deeply upsetting personal news.
