It's no secret that Megan Markle has been under a lot of pressure lately. She has been ruthlessly harassed by the media, launching attacks against everything from her motherly skills to her mixed-race heritage. It seems that no matter what, the Duchess of Sussex cannot take a break.
There has been so much going on with the royal family lately and there seems to be only one scandal after another. In particular, Duchess Megan has been taking her fair share of backlash lately, and even Prince Harry thinks it is necessary to go out and make a statement in defense of his wife.
However, some people may view the situation from a different angle. Do the attacks against Markle aim to protect another king?
What is Prince Andrew's relationship with Jeffrey Epstein?
So how is it that the notorious Jeffrey Epstein has ties to the British royal family? Prince Andrew and Epstein met in 1999, according to Town & Country. Prince Andrew has often been a guest at several Epstein properties and even filmed a few years ago at his New York townhouse.
The late Epstein and Prince Andrew have known each other for a long time, spending time together several times a year, Epstein even attended some functions in the royal family and met Prince Andrew's ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson.
Prince Andrew came out and said he should never spend time with Epstein after the horrific sentences against him, and even Buckingham Palace released a statement about Prince Andrew's feelings about the situation. Epstein died in a Manhattan prison last summer.
According to People, there were some serious allegations against the Duke of York, which he strongly denied. In fact, Andrew admits that he regrets all his friendship with Epstein.
Why Is Information Media Attacking Megan Markel Disproportionately?
The news media is grossly unfair to Duchess Megan, and she really refuses. Beth reports that the Duchess of Sussex has recently admitted in an interview that she is not doing so well and that royal life is more difficult and challenging than she had originally intended. Duchess Megan has come under fire for so many things and most of the attacks seem completely unjustified.
The media reviews every move she makes and breaks it for her actions when the opportunity arises. As a result, the Duchess Megan and Prince Harry have openly admitted that they are unhappy with the royal life as it is now, and even take a break for a while to stay low and keep out of the spotlight.
Are Megan Markel's Assassinations Intended to Protect Prince Andrew?
The news media simply will not leave Duchess Megan alone and this makes people wonder if there is actually another, deeper reason. Do the attacks against Markle really aim to protect Prince Andrew by diverting his scandal?
According to Reddit, the media continue following Duchess Megan to avoid focusing on the relationship of the Duke of York with convicted pedophile Epstein. Many believe that Prince Andrew's friendship with Epstein is much greater than anything related to Duchess Megan and that the royal family does not want negative attention. It may therefore turn out that the disproportionate attacks on Duchess Megan are simply a clever way of defending Prince Andrew so that they do not come under fire for what could be one of the biggest scandals in royal history.
If that's the motive, it doesn't work. After interviewing the BBC about his friendship with Epstein, the Duke of York continued to face criticism and announced his intention to "resign from public office for the foreseeable future." Prince Andrew has reportedly sought permission from the Queen and she provided him with a request.
"I continue to unequivocally regret my wrongful relationship with Jeffrey Epstein," the prince said in a statement. "His suicide has left many questions unanswered, especially for his victims, and I deeply sympathize with all those affected and seeking some form of closure."
