Meghan says changes would’ve been made if Kate Middleton was being bashed in the press | Daily Mail Online

Meghan Markle has told friends that  if Kate Middleton was constantly being criticized by the press, the royal family would have stepped in and changed its media policies and shunned the tabloids, an insider exclusively told DailyMail.com.

‘[Meghan said] no one would have put up with it, and the broken and outdated system would have been revised. Those outlets responsible for their vicious attacks would have been shut out,’ the friend explained. 

The Duchess, 37, firmly believes if the tables were turned and her sister-in-law had been subject to the same treatment, ‘changes would have been made’.

Last week the Sussexes announced they would have ‘no corroboration and zero engagement’ with four UK tabloids, including the Daily Mail, citing Meghan’s poor treatment. 

Although palace aides said everyone was stunned by the move, the friend said: ‘Meghan said no one in the royal family should be surprised with the announcement. 

She said everyone knew exactly how Harry felt about the British tabloids and the changes he wanted made in order to ‘If Kate was being criticized no one would put up with it.’ Bitter Meghan tells friends the palace favored her sister-in-law and would have attacked the UK tabloids if she were the one relentlessly picked on to protect his family.’

They added: ‘Meghan said Harry needed to take a stand for her, their son and his mother.’

The friend said: ‘Meghan said Harry needed to take a stand for her, their son and his mother’

The insider explained what ‘irritated Meghan and Harry the most’ was if the press had ‘constantly criticized and needlessly bashed Kate the way they did her, changes within the royal’s media policy would have been made. No questions asked.’  

Harry went to his father Prince Charles and his grandmother the Queen ‘constantly’ about Meghan being bullied, but they ‘wouldn’t do anything to change the protocol’, despite seeing ‘how it was tearing him apart,’ according to the source. 

‘[Meghan] said it was infuriating that Harry’s very real and valid concerns fell on deaf ears,’ the source said. 

‘Meghan said they made it seem like this is the way it is, deal with it. Harry had been dealing with it far too long. She said he wasn’t going to let this destroy her life and their marriage.’ 

In January, Meghan and Harry stunned the world when they announced they would be quitting their royal duties, become financially independent and split their time between North America and England.

The friend explained: ‘Meghan said when she was living in England, she was being bullied by the media non-stop and Harry knew he had to do something dramatic to protect her and the family. 

‘She said she was being treated unfairly and picked on for everything she did including rubbing her belly too much when she was pregnant.’

She said she was being treated unfairly and picked on for everything she did including rubbing her belly too much when she was pregnant’

‘She said there was no way she was going to go through motherhood being criticized for every little thing she did,’ the friend continued. 

‘She said she told Harry that it was only going to get worse, It was a no win situation and the only solution was to take control of their own lives. 

‘Harry needed to take a stand for her, their son and his mother. 

‘Meghan said Harry made it crystal clear that they could not function in good faith under the current system… and that if it wasn’t revised and updated to their liking, they would have no other choice than to break from the royal family. 

‘She said no one took his pleas seriously, so they had to take the issue into their own hands. This was about protecting the family and doing right by Princess Diana. 

‘She said the British tabloids have haunted Harry since childhood and should have been kicked out of the media pool long ago.

‘The system is broken and Harry wanted to fix it. She said he needed to take a stand and now they are doing it together.’ 

After announcing their decision to step back from their royal duties, Meghan and Harry set up base at a rented waterfront mansion on Vancouver Island in Canada. 

‘She said no one took his pleas seriously, so they had to take the issue into their own hands,’ the friend explained. ‘This was about protecting the family and doing right by Princess Diana. ‘She said the British tabloids have haunted Harry since childhood and should have been kicked out of the media pool long ago.’ Pictured: Princess Diana and Prince Harry in 1987

However, they quickly moved to Los Angeles last month when Canada announced it would be closing its borders to the US. 

Over Easter weekend, the royal couple were seen volunteering with Project Angel Food, dropping off food to LA locals who are critically ill and are at a greater risk amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

A source said they both were down to earth and Meghan told her inner circle that it felt good to finally be out and about connecting with people.

‘Meghan and Harry were really down-to-earth. Meghan had been looking for an organization to get behind and says Project Angel Food is the perfect fit. She plans on volunteering much more with Harry,’ the friend said. 

They went under-the-radar in dressed down clothes while delivering meals to 20 people, seen in exclusive DailyMail.com photos waving to a man after handing over bags of food. 

The source added: ‘Some people didn’t recognize them at first and others were just completely shocked. One elderly woman actually started to cry and said she had always been a fan and had always wanted to meet them, and then welcomed them to their new life in America.’  

Earlier this week, it was revealed Meghan Markle branded her father Thomas Markle a liar in court papers and denied she knew her influential friends planned to reveal details of her deteriorating relationship with him to People magazine, court papers revealed

Earlier this week, it was revealed Meghan Markle branded her father Thomas Markle a liar in court papers and denied she knew her influential friends planned to reveal details of her deteriorating relationship with him to People magazine.

Text messages revealed in new court documents claim Meghan and Harry tried to protect Thomas Markle in the days leading up to their wedding while he was forced to drop out of the lavish Windsor Castle wedding due to his failing health.

Meghan also states Thomas Markle did not answer truthfully when asked if had colluded with a photographer to stage pictures of him in the weeks leading up to the May 2018 ceremony.

She also maintains she was unaware that five close friends had chosen to intervene in the growing public debate about her relationship with her father by giving interviews to People magazine for an article published in February 2019.

Kate Middleton stuns royal fans in a metallic green dress at a bar in Ireland | HELLO!

It may only be day one of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge‘s whistle-stop tour of Ireland, but Kate has already impressed royal fans with her gorgeous outfits. Changing out of the green Alessandra Rich peplum dress and deep green coat she was pictured wearing earlier in the day, the stylish royal opted for an equally stunning outfit that was another gorgeous shade of metallic green. It looks as though the dress was by designer The Vampire’s Wife, and Kate paired it with black heels for the special reception at the Guinness Storehouse’s Gravity Bar. 

VIDEO: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrive at the evening reception

The 38-year-old’s beauty look is always spot on, and Tuesday night was no exception. She wore her hair down and wore the barely-there makeup look she is renowned for. Meanwhile, her husband Prince William also looked chic in a navy suit and smart black shoes. Considering the number of royal engagements they attend together, it comes as no surprise that they have nailed coordinated couples outfits – we’ll be taking notes from them for our next date night!

The Duchess of Cambridge looked flawless in a metallic green dress

During the reception at the Guinness Storehouse, hosted by the British Ambassador to Ireland, William and Kate met a broad range of people from the creative arts, sport, business and charity sectors. This follows Kensington Palace’s announcement last week which said the royal tour would see the pair “learn about local organisations working to support and empower young people and projects which provide opportunities to help them develop important life skills.” 

WATCH: Best royal fashion hacks you need to know

This was not the first time Kate and William have visited a bar, and one previous occasion even saw them put their own drink-serving skills to the test. In early 2019, the Duke and Duchess embarked on a two-day visit to Northern Ireland where they attended an informal party at Belfast Empire Hall. Photos show Kate making hilarious faces as she pulled a pint in the bar before her husband took on the task. Although her gorgeous sparkly blue dress appeared slightly out of place behind the bar, Kate certainly looked as though she could give a few bartenders a run for their money!

BAFTAs 2020: Kate Middleton stuns on red carpet in white gown | Daily Mail Online

The Duchess of Cambridge stole the show in white as she walked the red carpet alongside a host of A-listers at the Baftas for the fourth year running.

Looking every inch the film star alongside her husband Prince William, 37, Kate Middleton, 38, dazzled in a stunning white and gold gown by Alexander McQueen for the star-studded event, recycling a dress she first wore in 2012. 

Ahead of this year’s ceremony, Bafta bosses had urged attendees to ‘dress sustainable’ and encouraged to re-wear outfits, hire gowns or don vintage ensembles for the occasion. 

The mother-of-three added a touch of glamour to the outfit by pairing it with new accessories, including a new pair of shimmering £525 Jimmy Choo glitter heels and an Anya Hindmarch clutch bag, as well as a new jewellery set, for 73rd annual EE British Academy Film Awards at the Royal Albert Hall this evening.

The couple, who have made it their tradition to attend the biggest night in UK cinema each year, beamed at one another as they took a seat alongside a host of other celebrities at the awards ceremony.

Wow in white like the Duchess of Cambridge wearing Alexander McQueen

As attendees of the 2020 BAFTAs were encouraged to wear sustainable clothing, we waited with bated breath to see which gown the Duchess of Cambridge would select from her wardrobe.

Since her first appearance at the prestigious awards show in 2017, Kate has donned two Alexander McQueen dresses, so it seemed highly likely she would favour the British brand once again.

She chose a stunning custom-made gown from her 2012 State Dinner in Malaysia. Designed by Sarah Burton, this floor-sweeping creation paid homage to her hosts with glittering gold hibiscus embroidery, accentuating the official flower of that country.

Kate updated her recycled look with a clutch by Anya Hindmarch, Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ pumps and extravagant jewellery from Van Cleef & Arpels.

The couple have made their attendance a yearly occasion, with this year marking the fourth time in a row they have walked the red carpet at the event.   

The Duchess donned the stunning Alexander McQueen gown, having first worn the stunning gold and white dress during a tour of Malaysia in 2012. 

The designer is a favourite for Kate, who has often stepped out in the British brand over the years. 

The white gown was a bespoke piece made for the Malaysia visit in 2012, and is covered in gold Malaysian hibiscus flowers and layered over white flowing fabric.

The American film producer started her career working on E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, and most recently has worked on the Star Wars series. 

The Duke of Cambridge addressed issues around diversity before presenting Kathleen with the Bafta award.

He praised the ‘exceptional film-making’ that had been highlighted during the ceremony, and reflected on his 10 years as Bafta president, joking that he did not know if he should be ‘proud or slightly alarmed’ at how many of the winners over the past decade ‘have portrayed members of my own family’.

William said: ‘Both here in the UK and in many other countries across the world we are lucky to have incredible film-makers, actors, producers, directors and technicians – men and women from all backgrounds and ethnicities enriching our lives through film.

‘Yet in 2020, and not for the first time in the last few years, we find ourselves talking again about the need to do more to ensure diversity in the sector and in the awards process – that simply cannot be right in this day and age.’

He continued: ‘I know that both Pippa (Harris), chair of Bafta and Amanda (Berry), Bafta CEO, share that frustration and continue to work tirelessly to ensure that creative talent is discovered and supported.
