Prince Harry hated the press long before Megan Markle
Recently Prince Harry made headlines against the press. The Duke of Sussex and his wife, Megan Markle, have taken legal action against several media outlets for their ruthless "harassment" over the past year.
However, it seems that Prince Harry has been pushed to the edge lately, the truth is that he has not always liked the press. Given the fact that he grew up in the public eye, it is not surprising that Prince Harry's experience with the media is often negative.
Prince Harry's mother, Princess Diana, suffers from the hands of the press
The mother of Prince Harry, the late Princess Diana, became the most photographed woman in the world when she married the royal family. Princess Diana was admired by many, though it came with many drawbacks.
She was followed wherever she went. Reporters and photographers often did their best to get the perfect shot from her. Even when Princess Diana went out to spend time with her sons, she was not left alone.
This eventually led to her death. In 1997, she was involved in a car chase with the paparazzi in Paris, which eventually led to a car accident in a tunnel. Princess Diana is dead soon.
Prince Harry was only 13 years old when his mother passed away.
Prince Harry himself made a negative appearance in the media
In the years after Princess Diana's death Prince Harry tried to navigate his life as a teenager and young adult. However, in the growing process, he was also frequently criticized in the press.
Prince Harry was known as a wild child compared to his older brother, Prince William. The news of Prince Harry's fictions, such as his partying ways, drug use and contradictory behavior, often appeared in the news.
In recent years, Prince Harry has been more positive when he gets involved in charity causes and marries. It is clear, however, that the bad experiences he had with the press as a child still remain with him.

One of the reasons Prince Harry seems to hate the media , is how easy reporters and photographers can determine his own image. Everything he does is checked and every time he leaves the house he is at the mercy of the press.
Then it is not surprising that Prince Harry and Markle want to use social media to their advantage. After all, they have more control over their image when it comes to validating their Instagram page.
A source told Vanity Fair: "For them, the future is Instagram over the press. They reach a global audience that is more than a combination of spreadsheets and tabloids and are decisive in the way they want. As for Harry, this is a way to cut the main press, which is very convenient because he basically hates the press. "
One way Prince Harry and Markle 'cut the mainstream press' is by sharing important moments with fans directly in their Instagram account. When their son, Archie, was christened in July, the event was extremely personal and photos were shared on the social media pages of the pianos, not through the media.
This caused some photographers to get upset because their work was superfluous, though an insider said it was all part of Prince Harry's "plan to shake things up" in the media landscape.
Prince Harry also uses the lawsuit and their social media as a way of fighting the press to release him and his loved ones during difficult times.
"This is the payout time as far as Harry is concerned," the source says.
