Has the media turned on UK's Prince Harry and wife Meghan?

Less than a year after their wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have found themselves on the receiving end of some less than flattering media coverage as they prepare for the birth of their first child this Spring.

Edward Baran reports.


Has the media turned on UK's Prince Harry and wife Meghan?

The pictures made it look like a fairytale wedding and the headlines in British news media appeared to agree.

But less than a year since Prince Harry and Meghan were married, many of those same outlets' coverage has taken on a more negative hue.

There are stories about everything from the Queen banning Meghan from wearing certain royal jewels, ...to Meghan being overly demanding and Harry miserable.... ...to her taste for avocado, quote "fuelling human rights abuses".

(SOUNDBITE)(English) ROYAL PHOTOGRAPHER THE SUN NEWSPAPER, ARTHUR EDWARDS, SAYING: "I mean you know the, you know the press here in Britain it's very, very, very, aggressive and, and they don't hold back." It's a situation that's been exacerbated by members of Meghan's own family speaking out to the media.



ROBERT JOBSON, SAYING: "Her father and her (half) sister, half-sister and her half-brother who have been quite vile in some of things they've been saying which is of course has led to people thinking that it is the media attacking her.

Well it is a story, if Kate Middleton as she was, the Duchess of Cambridge's family or her step, her father was saying things about her like that, that would still be a story." The first public confirmation the Duke and Duchess were dating came in a statement from the Prince criticising the media for intruding into his then girlfriend's private life.

It was indicative of how Harry views the media, which he blames for the death of his mother Princess Diana.

Meghan's friend Hollywood film star George Clooney recently told an Australian magazine the media were harassing Meghan in the same way they had Diana.
