Everyone wants to know what’s going on with the royal family. Right now, it’s mostly Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex who are drawing attention from royal fans and haters. Though the two have been trying to push the royal attention off of themselves, even going as far as leaving their positions as working royals and moving to LA, interest in them has only increased.
Royals rarely ever respond to stories that have been spread about them, but Harry and Meghan have made it clear that they are not like other royals.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stick up for themselves
Prince Harry and Meghan have made it clear that they want to control their own narrative and will not allow people to just publish whatever they want about them. Back in October, they began the process of suing the parent company of Mail on Sunday for allegedly printing lies and a portion of Meghan’s private letters to her father.
“Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences – a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son,” Harry said in a statement at the time.
“It is for this reason we are taking legal action, a process that has been many months in the making. The positive coverage of the past week from these same publications exposes the double standards of this specific press pack that has vilified her almost daily for the past nine months; they have been able to create lie after lie at her expense simply because she has not been visible while on maternity leave. She is the same woman she was a year ago on our wedding day, just as she is the same woman you’ve seen on this Africa tour.”

This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming', placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.

They also responded to rumors about Harry’s relationship with Prince William in their documentary, Harry and Meghan: An African Journey. During his interview, Harry admitted that he and his brother were on different paths, but asserted that he would always have his brother’s back. In the same documentary, Meghan revealed that she was having trouble with all of the harsh criticism she was receiving from the public and the media.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s tell-all book
Now that they have separated themselves from the royal family as much as possible, people want to know even more about the pair. Instead of letting the press run rampant and make up whatever they want, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly given an interview for a new tell-all book.
The new book, Thoroughly Modern Royals: The Real World Of Harry And Meghan is 320 pages and is set to be released on August, 11, according to the Daily Mail.
