'He Is Truly Our Prince Charming'

Prince Harry issued a statement defending his girlfriend Meghan Markle against “racist and sexist” trolls.

After news of their relationship broke, there were a flurry of stories about the Suits actress, including some negative coverage focusing on her race. So, on Tuesday (Nov. 8, 2016), not only did he confirm he’s in a serious relationship, but he blasted the media and internet trolls for the “wave of abuse and harassment.”

“Some of this has been very public — the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments,” the statement informed.

The 32-year-old royal also voiced frustration in himself, noting that he is worried about Markle’s safety and is “disappointed” he has been unable to protect her.

Although the two have not been seen out in public, the statement from Kensington Palace is the first confirmation fo their a relationship.
