Social Media Reacts to Harry and Meghan’s Response to Kate Middleton’s Diagnosis Announcement

In the aftermath of Kate Middleton’s candid announcement regarding her cancer diagnosis, social media platforms ignited with contrasting reactions to the well-wishes extended by Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex. While many expressed empathy and support for the couple’s message, others raised eyebrows at the use of the word “privacy” given their past actions.

Critics were quick to highlight Harry and Meghan’s history of breaching the royal family’s privacy, citing instances such as their headline-making interview with Oprah Winfrey and Harry’s revealing autobiography, “Spare.” On platforms like X, users questioned the sincerity of the couple’s wish for Kate and Prince William to heal “privately and in peace,” considering their own public disclosures.

“Wishing Kate and William to be left ‘… privately and in peace…’ says Meghan and Harry. So glad Kate’s ‘privacy’ didn’t involve @Oprah, an obnoxious James Corden interview, Netflix saga and a ‘tell all’ book,” remarked one user, echoing sentiments shared by many others.

However, amidst the skepticism, there were voices of support for Harry and Meghan, recognizing the challenges they’ve faced regarding privacy intrusion and suggesting that their message to Kate may indeed be genuine. Some users on X expressed sympathy for the couple’s own struggles with privacy invasion and hoped that Kate’s experience would foster greater understanding and compassion towards Harry and Meghan.

“She shouldn’t have had to do this. Harry and Meghan went through all this invasion of privacy and decided enough was enough. Hopefully this experience finally makes people [sympathize] with Harry,” commented a user on X, reflecting a sentiment shared by others.
