Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had enough with slimy tabloids.
In a move that certainly shows off the strength of this irresistible pair, the two recently announced that they will no longer cooperate with four specific tabloids located in the U.K.. Those four publications are The Sun, The Daily Mail, The Mirror and The Express.
“It is gravely concerning that an influential slice of the media, over many years, has sought to insulate themselves from taking accountability for what they say or print — even when they know it will be distorted, false, or invasive beyond reason,” the couple says in the letter sent to the editors of the four tabloids on Sunday (April 19.). “When power is enjoyed without responsibility, the trust we all place in this much-needed industry is degraded.”
The actions come during the same week as Markle’s legal case against the publisher of Mail on Sunday, which published the contents of a “private and confidential” letter to her father back in August of 2018, according to People magazine.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have watched people they know — as well as complete strangers — have their lives completely pulled apart for no good reason, other than the fact that salacious gossip boosts advertising revenue,” the letter continues.
“With that said, please note that The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not be engaging with your outlet. There will be no corroboration and zero engagement. This is also a policy being instated for their communications team, in order to protect that team from the side of the industry that readers never see.
“It’s not about shutting down public conversation or censoring accurate reporting. Media have every right to report on and indeed have an opinion on The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, good or bad. But it can’t be based on a lie. They also want to be very clear: this is not in any way a blanket policy for all media,” they added.

Hopefully, the couple will find that they are treated much more fairly here in the states. Markle and Prince Harry recently moved to the Los Angeles area with their little son Archie.
