**Prince Harry attacks ‘racist’ trolls in unprecedented statement on American girlfriend Meghan Markle
Prince Harry has issued an unprecedented public statement about his new girlfriend Meghan Markle, raging against “racist and sexist” social media trolls and accusing the media of “crossing a line” in reporting their relationship.
The Prince, 32, warned the media and people commenting on Twitter and other sites that “this is not a game”.
While recognising that there is “significant curiosity about his private life” the Prince says that Miss Markle, 35, who has a black mother and a white father, has been “subject to a wave of abuse and harassment”.
The statement is the first official confirmation from Kensington Palace that the Prince is in a relationship with the American actress. It also says that the couple have been together for “a few months”.**
