Daniel Radcliffe shares his thoughts on the media research that Meghan Markle stands for.
In an interview with People Now on Friday, alumni “Harry Potter” admitted that he feels “terrible” for the Duchess of Sussex.
“… I don’t have a great interest [in the royal house],” Radcliffe noted, explaining that he heard “bits and pieces” and from what he heard, “he picks up that Meghan Markle is being treated at the full power of the British media. “
“I can only imagine,” said the actor. “That’s why I always thought the relationship of (Prince Harry and Meghan) was sweet. Because I thought, “She must love you, if she wants to get involved in this crazy life. “It must be insane. “
Radcliffe, who was 12 years old when the first “Harry Potter” film came out, said that the media attention he received as a child star is only “a fraction” of what Meghan’s husband Prince Harry and his brother Prince William have been through.
“They have experienced it from birth. I can’t imagine what that life would be like,” said the actor. “So while I’m not in the Institute of the Monarchy, I have enormous respect and empathy for [the royal family].
Meghan Markle, 38, recently opened on the intense media research that she is confronted with in Tom Bradby’s ITV documentary “Harry & Meghan: An African Journey”.
“I never thought this would be easy, but I thought it would be fair,” said Meghan Markle of the fame. “And that’s the part that’s really hard to reconcile.
“If things are fair, it’s all right for me if things are fair,” she continued. “If I do something wrong, I’d be the first,” Oh, my God, I’m so sorry. I would never do that, “but if people say things that just aren’t true and they’re told they’re not true, but they’re still allowed to say them, then I don’t know anyone in the world who would feel that’s okay. And that’s not just research. “
“That’s, what would you call it? That’s another beast. It really is a different beast,” she added.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry – who announced earlier in October that he is taking legal action against the British tabloids – is determined to protect his wife from the negative press attention.
“He sees his wife’s pain and the attacks she faces, and he wants to try to solve it,” a source close to the 35-year-old British royal household told People magazine.
As for Meghan Markle, she told Bradby in the documentary that she hopes that one day the public will only focus on the positive: the love that the couple has for each other.
“I would hope that people, the world, will get to the point where they just see us as a couple who’s in love because I don’t wake up every day and identify as being anything other than who I’ve always been,” said the former “Suits” star.
“It’s just, I’m Meghan and I’m married to this incredible man and this is just part of our love story for me,” she added.
