Meghan Markle has been urged to “lighten up” and end her “phoney war” with the media.
Over the past couple of months, the spotlight has been on the backlash against the 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex.
So much so that royal aides at Kensington Palace are reportedly spending hours each week monitoring their social media accounts to moderate the sexist and racist comments aimed at Meghan, her sister-in-law Kate, and their fans.
Her estranged father Thomas Markle then released excerpts from a personal letter in which Meghan begged him to stop victimising her in public.
But Arthur Edwards, The Sun‘s royal photographer, who has snapped the Royal Family for over 40 years, hit back at his claim.
“The paparazzi do not stalk her like they did the Princess of Wales — although they were often tipped off about where Diana would be.”
He added that the only paparazzi photos taken of Harry and Meghan were when they first started dating and since then “she has been closely monitored by the Palace Press team.”
He said: “The biggest invasion of her privacy was triggered by Meghan herself, after she gave consent to friends to talk to People magazine in America last week about the awful relationship she has with her dad.”
Mr Edwards thinks the couple should look at Charles and Camilla, who have endured “hostile press coverage” and have “worked harder and harder to win people over.”
