“Why is the reporting around Andrew far less vicious than anything around Meghan/Harry?”

Following news that Prince Andrew had settled his sexual abuse lawsuit out of court, fans criticized the press and the royal family for their treatment of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

According to reports, the Duke of York and his accuser, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, have agreed to settle the matter in 30 days for £12 million. He also agreed to “make a substantial donation to Ms. Giuffre’s charity in support of victims’ rights” as part of the settlement.

Court documents obtained by CNN also stated that “Prince Andrew has never intended to malign Ms. Giuffre’s character, and he accepts that she has suffered both as an established victim of abuse and as a result of unfair public attacks.” His legal team even commended her bravery in coming forward and mentioned how the royal “regrets his association with (Jeffrey) Epstein.”

Following the settlement, fans rushed to social media to point out how the press covered the duke’s case differently than Megxit’s. The news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s resignation from royal duties in January 2020 was welcomed with scorn, and scandal-filled headlines followed.

In the meantime, the British press has been forgiving in its coverage of Prince Andrew’s sexual assault allegations. One fan tweeted a front page that referred to Megxit as “The Worst Royal Crisis in 85 Years,” while another simply stated Andrew’s settlement.

“Why is the reporting around Andrew far less vicious than anything around Meghan/Harry. I mean, according to the press, naming their child Lilibet caused the Queen way more upset and distress than this horrendous debacle.”

Another commented on the post, “The headline on the left should be the headline for Andrew. The way his is massively played down but is 100x worse than what happened with Harry and Meghan.”

Others noted the irony of the royals’ refusal to foot the bill for Prince Harry’s security detail when he visits the United Kingdom. He even offered to pay for his family’s police security with his own money, but he was turned down. According to rumors, Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth II loaned the settlement money to Prince Andrew.

As per Ibtimes, in 2017 Prince Harry’s told by the Royal Family / The Queen that there’s no money for security & clothes for his wife Meghan & maybe she can continue working as an actress to pay for this herself.
But now they have 12m+ to pay off a lady Prince Andrew hasn’t met?

Meanwhile, another fan ranted the royals’ “misogyny” in their treatment of Meghan Markle. They are accused of calling her a liar and investigating her for bullying. Prince Andrew, on the other hand, received his family’s full support in settling his sexual abuse case.
