Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shocked the public when they announced on January 8 that they were leaving their position as senior members of the royal family. One of the most notable changes they're making is to deny a group of British press outlets first access to their personal press releases after years of press coverage and editing decisions that they feel have been unfair, filled with favoritism, and aimed to turn public opinion against Meghan in particular.

Since the announcement, journalists unearthed some of the British media’s most snide and judgmental headlines about Meghan and put them next to what the same outlets—sometimes even the same authors—thought of similar situations when fellow Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton was involved. Here are some of the things that British journalists only seemed to think were wrong once the former British royal family member Meghan did them. (h/t buzzfeed)

TBH...the way Kate touches her belly isn't as intense as Meghan Markle. It's not just the media wording, but even when you look at the photos there's a difference. Meghan makes a point to hold onto her belly. It's not a matter of being racist or not. We've all knew pregnant ladies and there's a way they hold it that sticks out. The problem isn't the fact they are holding their bellies or not holding their bellies, but the fact the media thinks they have to talk abt it all the time.

TBH, theedia picked the specific pics that fit their rhetoric. And who’s to say that Meghan didn’t have pains that she was rubbing or touching? Without BEING her, there’s no way you could possibly know what she’s going through!! Plus, if you look at the bylines, the Kate story is written by two women, whereas the one about Meghan doesn’t have a name. Makes me think they wanted to hide who had written it.

Now Meghan knows how Melania may feel being compared to Michelle. No matter that the FLOTUS is always beautifully attired, and dresses in the latest and most expensive designer wear, the press refuses to acknowledge her sense of style. Even with a staff of 24 and two full-time make-up artists at her disposal, Michelle often arrived wearing what appeared to be shower curtains and garish tablecloths found on sale at Target clearance. Still, despite the horror show, the press fawned over her like she was Coco Chanel reborn. We don't have to read of Kate and Meghan to see the hypocrisy of the media, we witness it here on a constant and neverending basis. michelleex...e3f5bb.jpg michelleexiting-af1-5e24095e3f5bb.jpg

So when the press and trolls treated Diana, Camilla and Kate like shit, this being the examples that Meghan's friends were using when they told her that the press would chew her up and spit her out, it was because they were racist to all 3 ?? I find it a little odd to say that Harry is protecting Meghan from the racist press because she's going through the same thing his mother went through...as a black woman ?? Is it possible the press are misogynistic snobs who go after 1 woman until fresh meat shows up and they turn tail towards her.

I think they are leaving out a lot of other stuff that makes the public dislike Meghan Markle. One the way she treated the help & aides. News of her father and her relationship with him. Her constantly rubbing her belly in public when she knows all eyes are on her. She makes a show of it. Also Harry, William and Kate have always gotten along fine. Along comes Meghan and suddenly everything is tense... She's the addition that affected the family. It's like YOKO for the Beatles. There's also her flaunting her situation. $500k on flowers for her baby shower then gifting the flowers to the hospital after shr was done with them is a bit rude. The comment from Harry abt having only 2 kids because of the environment, well why not adopt if that's the case? It's a slight against his brother who has 3 kids. A brother who has always defended him in public. Him lecturing the public abt carbon footprint yet he flies private jets only. Just too preachy and obnoxious overall.

May I point out a vast difference between the two? Meghan had one (or both) hands clutching her growing belly in Every-Single-Photo shot between announcement of her pregnancy and Archie's arrival date. Kate, on the other hand, was capable of trusting her muscles and ligaments to hold the babe in place until it was time!

In 2016, shortly after the pair began dating, Prince Harry issued an official statement condemning the media’s coverage of Meghan. Among his complaints were one newspaper’s quips and tone-deaf euphemisms about her race and class background.

Since then, many have continued to speculate that the media’s general bias against her comes from resistance to accepting a mixed-race American into what upper-class white British people feel is an exclusive cultural institution like the British royals.

Her husband has been her #1 supporter since bringing her into the royals, joining her to sue a British tabloid for infringing on her privacy in 2018.

At the same time, he released a scathing statement comparing the press’ treatment of her to that of his mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car accident while trying to escape from meddling photographers after years of being tormented by invasive journalists.

This year, it looks like the couple decided that strongly worded letters weren’t making a difference and they’re now setting off to teach the British press a lesson by cutting ties officially.

The Queen, 92, has a busy week ahead, with high-profile celebrations in central London marking the centenary of the RAF on Tuesday, and a visit by US President Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday." Daily Mail: July 9, 2018

Meghan and Harry: "The situation has surprised some senior staff at Buckingham Palace, who feel that the duke and duchess should have planned the day better. ‘There is huge support for the couple in not wanting to conform to tradition. They are young, they are striking out on a different path from other members of the Royal Family and there is enormous goodwill for them. But they shouldn’t do that without regard for tradition,’ said one. ‘Her Majesty was already scheduled to be in Scotland for her annual Holyrood Week and had a prior engagement at the weekend. There is a feeling amongst some that they should have been more accommodating about the date.’" Daily Mail: July 4, 2019

Kate: "As far as bridal bouquets go there was nothing particularly regal about Kate Middleton’s modest arrangement of simple, seasonal flowers. Like the bride herself the bouquet was effortlessly elegant and understated. "Yet behind that modest posy lay a secret story. Kate, the commoner-turned-duchess, had painstakingly selected blooms with real meaning. She is evidently well-versed in the language of flowers, a little-known romantic relic from the 19th century. "Hence the use of lilac in her bouquet, which signifies the first emotions of love, the lily of the valley meaning a return of happiness, hyacinth standing for constancy, myrtle meaning love and the ivy, which represents fidelity. Then of course there was the suitably named Sweet William, which is shorthand for gallantry." Express: Aug. 29, 2011

Meghan: "[Meghan Markle] was holding a wedding bouquet which flowers were replicated in Princess Charlotte and the other bridesmaids’ flower crowns. Express.co.uk can now reveal the children’ crowns were made of flowers that can be deadly, especially for children. Meghan’s bouquet was made of forget-me-nots as well as sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine, and astrantia... "Lily of the valley is a highly poisonous woodland flowering plant and ingestion could be deadly... As Meghan’s bridesmaids were so young, having this flower on their heads could be considered a dangerous decision. Other brides have also used this flowers including Kate Middleton, Princess Eugenie and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall." Express: Oct. 13, 2019
