An Open Letter To The British Press On Behalf Of Harry & Meghan

So you are aghast.

You are disgusted at the disrespect, as a young married couple blaze a new trail for a new decade and simply refuse to accept the crappy hand you have dealt them.

How very dare they stand up and say that actually, as advocates of good mental health and examples of an evolved society, we simply refuse to deal with this constant barrage of misogynous, racist and smear-tactic reporting that you have allocated to them as their ‘lot’.

They didn’t sign up to that actually.

They ‘signed up’ to take each other’s hand in marriage, to be a part of an institution with a platform to do a hell of a lot of good, which they are doing by the way.

Perhaps if you stopped criticising their every move you would see what they have achieved.

You see, it is not okay to make one woman’s journey from an entirely different background so much harder than it already is, by reporting her every move in a suspicious manner… it was going to be a tough enough ride for her already.

And don’t for one minute think you can get away with saying that you have reported fairly here…

For example, Meghan cradles her baby bump constantly because she is an ‘actress’ trying to come across as soft and maternal but Kate, on the other hand, just somehow is soft and maternal when she constantly caresses hers…. the deviousness of this suggestion is astounding.

IT IS A MASSIVE SWOLLEN PART OF YOUR BODY, CONTAINING THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE – YOU WOULD WANT TO CONSTANTLY TOUCH IT TOO!

…Kate loves avocado because it helps with her morning sickness but Meghan’s love of the fruit is aiding and abetting TERRORISM. 

This was an actual story, look it up people, you will be amazed.

I could go on and on to provide examples of how you have treated both women entirely differently and how much negativity and judgement you have sewn into each and every reported word about Harry’s new wife.

And now she has had enough.

You see, we live in an age where young people are committing suicide more than ever because of the ever changing society in which we live. 

Life is more of a goldfish bowl for us all and social media has taught each and every one of us, how stressful online hatred and  bullying can be. It has impact. 

And it’s not okay.

So, wipe the shocked looks from your faces, admit that this is a direct consequence of your actions and then cast your mind back to a 12 year old boy whose mother was cruelly taken from him by the voracious and unrelenting chase of the press who watched her every move, waiting for her to do something so they could tell the world.

Was it worth it?

We lost a light we very much needed that day and Harry, he lost everything.

Let him get it back for himself and do your job the way it should be done.

Fairly.

And as for blaming it all on Meghan, we are not fooled. Harry is a man who will never forgive and forget and quite frankly, how could he.

Now take it on the chin. Your karma came good.
