Maybe someone should tell those Disney princesses that dating a prince isn't always that fun. Ask Meghan Markle, Prince Harry's girlfriend, who had her privacy very, very much invaded when a nude Snapchat photo of her was allegedly leaked over the weekend on the cite Naughty Gossip.
In fact, the 35-year-oldSuits actor, who describes herself as biracial, is getting so much unwanted attention from the media and hate from the world at large, that she requested time off from work, possibly to meet with lawyers, according to Page Six.
On Tuesday, Kensington Palace issued an (unprecedented) public statement addressing the abuse on the prince's behalf, reading in part,
[T]he past week has seen a line crossed. His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment. 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. Some of it has been hidden from the public - the nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers; her mother having to struggle past photographers in order to get to her front door; the attempts of reporters and photographers to gain illegal entry to her home and the calls to police that followed; the substantial bribes offered by papers to her ex-boyfriend; the bombardment of nearly every friend, co-worker, and loved one in her life.
Okay, England, leave the poor lady alone now please.
