The term “Megxit” (Megxit) appeared in English after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their resignation and chose the life of ordinary people. It was formed from two words – the name of the Duchess Meghan and exit, which means “exit”. This is a reference to Brexit, the UK's exit from the European Union.

The word “Megsit” is used very often in the Western press: it is clear to everyone and does not require additional explanation. However, the 37-year-old Duke of Sussex finds him offensive and misogynistic.

While Meghan Markle was attending The New York Times DealBook yesterday, her husband was the guest of another virtual discussion hosted by Re: Wired magazine in New York, where he spoke out against media disinformation.

The term “Megsit” was and continues to be misogynistic. It was created by trolls, it was spread by journalists around the world, and it began to be used in the mainstream media. But it all started with one internet troll

– said the Duke of Sussex.

Harry said that he had been familiar with the problem of disinformation in the media since childhood, when his mother, Princess Diana, was often the main “target” of press attacks.

I realized from a very young age that the motives for publishing are not always associated with the real truth. I know this story too well. I lost my mother to this homebrew madness. And I am determined not to lose the mother of my children because of the same (the couple are raising two-year-old son Archie and five-month-old daughter Lilibet Diana. – Ed.),

– he said.

Princess Diana's life has often been the subject of media speculation. Despite the fact that she did not refuse to communicate with the press and was generally loyal to the media, she was often written about and told lies.

Her interview with the BBC, in which she told the whole truth about life in the royal family and relationship with her husband Prince Charles, caused a huge resonance and became a turning point in her fate – it is believed that it was it that served as the impetus for the divorce from Charles.

Harry's wife Meghan Markle was not spared by the British media either. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, which for some reason now disappeared from the TV presenter's YouTube channel, Megan admitted that due to media harassment, she even began to think about suicide. The duchess said that in the palace she was given a clear instruction not to dispute what the press writes and not to give any comments. Interceding for his wife, Harry accused the British tabloids of deliberately inciting racism and hatred towards Megan. The spouses have repeatedly sued publications that gave false information about them, and it was largely because of the persecution that they decided to resign from royal powers and move to another country.
