Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have a new policy of “zero engagement” when it comes to a few major U.K. tabloids.
On Sunday, the couple sent a letter to the editors of The Sun, Daily Mail, Mirror and Express revealing that they will no longer respond to any inquiries from their reporters.
“As The Duke and Duchess of Sussex now settle into the next chapter of their lives and no longer receive any publicly funded support, we are writing to set a new media relations policy, specifically as it pertains to your organisation,” the letter begins. “Like you, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex believe that a free press is a cornerstone to any democracy — particularly in moments of crisis. At its best, this free press shines a light on dark places, telling stories that would otherwise go untold, standing up for what’s right, challenging power, and holding those who abuse the system to account.”
The duo opened up about the negative portion of the media, where “power is enjoyed without responsibility.”
