George stressed that Meghan Markle is pregnant and that the paparazzi should leave her alone. George told:

“She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was and it’s history repeating itself.”

George further said:

“We’ve seen how that ends.”

George has slammed the invasion of her privacy. He said:

“I can’t tell you how frustrating that is, just seeing them broadcast a letter from a daughter to a father, she’s getting a raw deal there and I think it’s irresponsible and I’m surprised by that.” 

Princess Diana and her death after paparazzi chase

It might be recalled that the media followed Princess Diana after her divorce to Prince Charles and also before it. The paparazzi used to chase her for some juicy scoops. When she was in Paris with Dodi Al-Fayed, her car was chased by the paparazzi on motorcycles.

When her car passed through the Paris Tunnel, the driver lost control while speeding from the media personnel and her car crashed. This was in 1997. It seems that the media has now turned their attention to Meghan Markle and almost every day some stories about her feature in the tabloids.

Meghan Markle and how the media portrays her

The tabloids initially welcomed Meghan into the royal family and penned some good views about her. They said that she was a fresh air into the household which was stale and out of touch.

Her coverage gradually shifted and became more critical. Some dailies reported that Meghan is a difficult Duchess who is conspiring with Camilla Parker Bowles. People also questioned the nature of her relations with her sister-in-law Kate Middleton. They brought to the forefront repeatedly her relations with her father Thomas and elder paternal half-sister Samantha though Meghan has been away from them for many years.
