Prince Harry released a statement on Tuesday regarding the egregious mistreatment and disparaging remarks made about his interracial relationship with Los Angeles native Meghan Markle.

Harry and Meghan’s relationship became an international story last month after just a few weeks of going public. Unfortunately, Meghan, best known for her role as Rachel Zane in the legal drama Suits, has faced major scrutiny for her courtship and the Prince is fed up.

“His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment,” the statement read. “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.”

According to the statement, the safety of Markle’s mother has also been at jeopardy; this includes the harassment of photographers who have apparently attempted to illegally enter her home in the Crenshaw area of Los Angeles.

Meghan was born to an African-American mother and Dutch-Irish father.

“Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her,” the statement read.

The comment suggested, “It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm. He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘this is all part of the game.’ He strongly disagrees. This is not a game – it is her life and his.”

Harry, who met Meghan at a charity event, released the statement in hopes that the racist and sexist harassment of his girlfriend comes to a screeching halt. In the meantime, it doesn’t sound like Harry will let the media and social media trolls come between he and his girlfriend.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
