London >> It’s the British royals versus the press — again — and Prince Harry thinks enough is enough.
In a highly unusual statement, the prince on Tuesday lashed out at the media for intruding on the privacy of his new girlfriend, American actress Meghan Markle. The 32-year-old royal said the press had crossed a line with articles that had “racial undertones,” and pleaded: “This is not a game.”
Kensington Palace described how journalists tried to break into Markle’s home, newspapers offered “substantial bribes” to her ex-boyfriend and said nearly everyone she knows has been bombarded for information. Markle, 35, is best known for her role on the U.S. television drama “Suits.”
Many tabloids alluded to her mixed-race heritage — she has an African-American mother and a white father.
