Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will reportedly face a “lifetime” battle with the British media if they stick to their legal tactics, a royal expert has said.
According to expert Amber Meville-Brown, Prince Harry’s pursuit of numerous legal battles in recent years, the latest of which is a libel suit against Associated Newspapers, publishers of the Mail on Sunday, is a tactic entirely the opposite of that of Queen Elizabeth, who has always avoided fighting in public.
Meville-Brown said news week: “Meghan and Harry are involved in what will inevitably be a lifelong battle with the British tabloid.”
“… They will not be immune to scrutiny, criticism and sometimes serious accusations; and if they complain, explain and file a lawsuit every time serious scrutiny and accusations are sent their way, they will find themselves very busy,” he continued.
The royal expert also added: “For the Royal Family, the beauty of the ‘never complain, never explain’ philosophy is consistency. It is a mantra for all seasons, a response for all eventualities, making it unmistakably clear in the face of damaging accusations, gossip or rumors that there will be no explanation or compromise.”
“By departing from that strategy, Prince Harry has put himself in the position where he has to complain about the allegations and explain himself, or at least feels he has to, where silence and a shrug would otherwise have been offered. real,” he concludes. Meville-Brown.
