Meghan and Harry Released a Bombshell Letter Cutting Ties with Four Major U.K. Tabloids

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially cut ties with four major tabloids in the United Kingdom (The Sun, The Daily Mail, The Mirror and The Express), and made their feelings more than clear by releasing a public letter about why they’ll no longer be working with the publications.

The letter, published Sunday night, reads “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. 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.”

The couple maintain that this new policy isn’t about stopping the free press or protecting themselves from unwanted criticism: “This policy is not about avoiding criticism. It’s not about shutting down public conversation or censoring accurate reporting,” the letter read. “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 concluded with, “What they won’t do is offer themselves up as currency for an economy of clickbait and distortion. We are encouraged that this new approach will be heard and respected.”
