"London (AFP) – Prince Harry and his wife Meghan’s abrupt announcement that they want to withdraw from frontline royal duties has sparked speculation about whether she may have been the target of racism.
The couple’s decision to step back as senior royals and seek financial independence from the monarchy follows months of harsh coverage of Meghan by some British media outlets.
The Duchess of Sussex, as she is formally known by her royal title, is of mixed race, with a white father and African-American mother.
Almost as soon as her relationship with Harry became public in 2016, some newspapers were accused of peddling offensive racial stereotypes about Meghan.
The Daily Mail headlined its "exclusive" announcing their romance as "Harry’s girl is (almost) straight outta Compton", referring to the Los Angeles neighbourhood infamous for crime and poverty.
Meghan Markle grew up in nearby central LA and was educated at private schools.”
