Prince Harry snaps at reporter amid tension with press
Prince Harry is mad as hell, and he’s not going to take this anymore.
Shortly before publishing a statement defending wife Meghan Markle from the British press, the Duke of Sussex reprimanded Sky News journalist Rhiannon Mills for asking a rude and unscheduled question during his visit to the Mauwa Health Centre in Malawi.
E! News reports that after concluding his talk with health officials about the center, Mills accosted Harry on the way to his car and proceeded to ask, “That short conversation, what do you hope to achieve through it?”
The Prince, clearly taken aback by the question, responded, “What? Ask them.”
Mills continued to press the royal, adding, “Is that why it’s important for you to come and talk to them?”
Picking up on the sarcasm, Harry called out the journalist by name, saying, “Rhiannon, don’t behave like this.”
Hours later, Harry issued a statement calling out the British press for its treatment of Markle, who is suing UK publication The Daily Mail for publishing a private letter she wrote to her father after marrying into the royal family.
“We have initiated legal proceedings against the Mail on Sunday, and its parent company Associated Newspapers, over the intrusive and unlawful publication of a private letter written by the Duchess of Sussex, which is part of a campaign by this media group to publish false and deliberately derogatory stories about her, as well as her husband,” reads a statement from London law firm Schillings, which is representing Markle.
“Given the refusal of Associated Newspapers to resolve this issue satisfactorily, we have issued proceedings to redress this breach of privacy, infringement of copyright and the aforementioned media agenda.”
