Look: British Press Calls Prince Harry's Girlfriend 'Scandalous' Because of Her ‘Visibly Black’ Mom

Meghan Markle is being attacked in the worst way.

Published November 3rd

Now that Prince Harry is dating a Black woman, Suits actress Meghan Markle, the racist dog whistles can be heard everywhere.

A day after one British newspaper referred to the potential future princess as "Straight Outta Compton," another major publication — The Guardian — points out that the press is calling the couple's relationship "scandalous" because she has a "visibly Black mom."

"The British press have ... made it clear that her relationship with Harry is scandalous, for a number of reasons: she is divorced; she is older (Markle is 35, Harry 32); she’s played raunchy scenes in the US TV series Suits — and her mother is visibly Black, with dreadlocks," writes author Afua Hirsch about the racist scrutiny surrounding Markle.

She continues, "These details would be unremarkable — irrelevant, inappropriate, even —were it any other celebrity romance. But Prince Harry, fifth in line to the British throne, is a different matter."

Take a look at Markle's "visibly Black mom" below:
