According to the source Harry went to his father Prince Charles and his grandmother the Queen ‘constantly’ about Meghan being bullied, but they ‘wouldn’t do anything to change the protocol’, despite seeing ‘how it was tearing him apart,’ the source added:
“Meghan said it was infuriating that Harry’s very real and valid concerns fell on deaf ears. Meghan said they made it seem like this is the way it is, deal with it. Harry had been dealing with it far too long. She said he wasn’t going to let this destroy her life and their marriage.”
The source explained:
“Meghan said when she was living in England, she was being bullied by the media non-stop and Harry knew he had to do something dramatic to protect her and the family. She said she was being treated unfairly and picked on for everything she did including rubbing her belly too much when she was pregnant.”
