Prince Harry called the term "Megzit" misogynistic: "I do not intend to lose the mother of my children because of this"

The term "Megxit" appeared in English after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced the resignation of their royal powers and chose the lives of ordinary people. It was formed from two words - the name of the Duchess Meghan and exit, which means "exit" in translation. This is a reference to Brexit (Brexit) - the UK's exit from the European Union.

The word "Megzit" is used very often in the Western press: it is clear to everyone and does not require additional explanations. However, the 37-year-old Duke of Sussex considers it offensive and misogynistic.

While yesterday Meghan Markle took part in the online summit of The New York Times DealBook, her husband became a guest of another virtual discussion organized by Re magazine:Wired in New York, where he spoke out against disinformation in the media.

The term "Megzit" was and continues to be misogynistic. It was created by trolls, and journalists in the world spread it, and it began to be used in the leading media. But it all started with one Internet troll,

The Duke of Sussex said.

Harry said that the problem of disinformation in the media has been familiar to him since childhood, when his mother Princess Diana often became the main "target" of attacks by the press.

I realized from an early age that the motives for publishing are not always associated with the real truth. I know this story too well. I lost my mother because of this homegrown madness. And I am determined not to lose the mother of my children because of the same thing (the couple are raising a two-year-old son Archie and a five-month-old daughter Lilibet Diana. - Ed.),

— he said.

Princess Diana's life has often been the subject of speculation in the media. Despite the fact that she did not refuse to communicate with the press and was generally loyal to the media, she was often written about and told lies.

Her BBC interview, in which she told the whole truth about life in the royal family and her relationship with her husband Prince Charles, caused a huge resonance and became a turning point in her fate — it is believed that it was it that triggered the divorce from Charles.

Harry's wife Meghan Markle was also not spared by the British media. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, which has now somehow disappeared from the TV presenter's YouTube channel, Megan admitted that because of the harassment in the media, she even began to think about suicide. The Duchess said that at the palace she was given a clear instruction not to dispute what the press writes and not to give any comments. Standing up for his wife, Harry accused the British tabloids of deliberately inciting racism and hatred towards Megan. The spouses have repeatedly sued publications that gave false information about them, and in many respects it was because of harassment that they decided to resign their royal powers and move to another country.
