Relations between Meghan Markle and the media are pretty bad in the last few months, and things have complicated when the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex announced that the media will not be allowed to photograph baby Sussex. The whole situation looks like a war between the two sides, on one the Duchess of Sussex, and on another paparazzi. While the media reported that Meghan doesn’t respect the tradition of the royal family and the United Kingdom, she often received support from famous people such as George Clooney and Oprah Winfrey.
They expressed their opinion and supported Meghan. Also, celebrities have criticized the way paparazzi write about the Duchess of Sussex, as it reminds of the case of Princess Diana.
But whether criticism of celebrities really has an effect on the paparazzi or is their support futile¬? More than ten years ago, the opinion of famous people such as George Clooney or Oprah Winfrey was very much respected. However, today the situation is quite different because criticism of one legend, does not cause the shame of the media anymore.
Do celebrities see that the problem is more serious?
Another celebrity who supported Meghan and criticized the way the media is behaving towards her is Oprah Winfrey. However, there is another problem here, and these are racist comments by some people. We do not know if these stars have noticed this, but such offensive comments can cause very negative consequences.
On the other hand, fans of this royal couple know that Meghan has a warm heart, and that she is motivated to show her best in the new role as part of the British royal family.
It is known that every person in the world has some flaw, however, Meghan Markle has repeatedly showed her many virtues with her public actions. Her step-family had some controversial comments on her, but we were not convinced of their statements because Markle showed her good features innumerable times. Maybe her step-family works together with the media to damage the reputation of the Duchess of Sussex.
However, we still do not have the answer to one question, which is whether criticism of celebrities really impacts the media?
Today there are paparazzi who were not born at the time Princess Diana was alive
That is exactly one of the big problems, because today we have 20-year-old paparazzi and who are not well acquainted with the People’s Princess case. A large number of them were babies who did not feel emotion after the death of Princess Diana and the sadness caused by her tragedy. That’s why it is important for these young people to understand the danger of comments and the impact they have, because no one wants to repeat the situation as 22 years ago. And that’s exactly what celebrities such as George Clooney and Oprah Winfrey warn about.
Perhaps more awareness will help in this case
Meghan and Harry have taken some steps to help raise awareness among young people. For example, Harry joined together with the aforementioned Oprah Winfrey to create a documentary about the new streaming service by Apple. The focus of this film will primarily be on mental health.
Of course, mental health is very important in today’s world because many young people are confronted with harassment on the Internet, and that is also something that the Duchess of Sussex is also encountering.
Perhaps some other methods are needed to make young paparazzi aware and realize that the current situation can cause even greater disaster. That is why the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex prepared a strategy to fight the media properly.
One way is certainly avoiding paparazzi as well as banning the photographing of baby Sussex. In this way, they want to send a clear and unequivocal message to all the media.
