Popular American talk show host, Ellen Degeneres has praised both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for taking the bold decision to sue some British Tabloids who have targetted Meghan for their malicious publications.
According to the People, Ellen Degeneres who is friends with Prince Harry and Meghan, and who also had previously shared that she visited the royal couple and their 5-month-old son Archie at their Frogmore Cottage home over the summer, defended Meghan and Harry’s decision to take legal action against British media.
The People reported that, Ellen Degeneres chatting with Prince Harry‘s polo pal Nacho Figueras, said, “You and I feel very strongly in support of what’s happening right now to protect themselves, because I met them through you, like I said, and I learned just how much scrutiny that they’re under all the time.”
Figueras defended Harry as a “wonderful man”: “He cares about making the world a better place.”
“Then he found Meghan, who is an incredible girl,” he added. “She gave up all of the things that she had to marry this man that she loves, which is great and people think of it like, ‘Oh, how easy it is for you, girl, to go marry this guy,’ but nobody knows all the very hard things that go with that.”
“To me, the most surprising thing is that media and even some people are not seeing that these are heroes,” the Argentine athlete said on the show. “We should be treating them as heroes. These guys are taking their time to make the world a better place, and they’re all fighting for us. Instead of us praising them, and loving them, and cheering them up, we are attacking them. So, it’s a shame.”
Prince Harry and Meghan who is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have in the last five days, filed a suit against some British Tabloid for alleged false publications, and the latest one being that these media allegedly carried out some phone hacking belonging to the Royal couple.
The move to which Ellen DeGeneres as reported by People, immediately tweeted her support, saying “I’m proud to call Meghan and Harry friends, and I’m even more proud of them for finally saying enough is enough,” she wrote.
