In a an emotional statement, Prince Harry said that he doesn’t want the history to repeat itself as he has lost his mother and now his wife is becoming a prey to the same powerful forces.

Meghan Markle, the wife of Britain’s Prince Harry, has started legal proceedings against the Mail on Sunday newspaper over the publication of a private letter that her lawyers said was unlawful.
“My deepest fear is history repeating itself. I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.”, Prince Harry said in a statement.
The Mail stands by the story it published and will be defending this case vigorously, media stated.
His mother, Princess Diana, became one of the most photographed women on the planet after she married into the British royal family.
