We'll add this to our ever-growing list of reasons to love Prince Harry: he's come out swinging in defence of his girlfriend Meghan Markle, releasing an incredible statement aimed at the media.
Ever since rumours started swirling about a possible relationship between the young prince and Meghan (who stars in popular TV show Suits), she's been subjected to troubling personal attacks in the media — and it seems like Harry has finally had enough.
In a statement released via his communications secretary, Harry thanked fans for their life-long support, confirmed that Meghan is his girlfriend and that they've been together for a few months (!), and asked the media to "pause and reflect" on his words. It's extremely rare for a statement of this nature to be released, which goes some way to showing just how bad things must be for Meghan and her family.
