Kim Kardashian says she empathises with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's struggle for privacy
Kim Kardashian says she empathises with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's struggle for privacy.
Much has been made of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decision their lives private where possible and when they decided not to release the names of their son's godparents earlier this year, they received a lot of criticism.
Many people think that because they are members of the royal family, the public should be entitled to some information about their lives and this has led to intense scrutiny of the couple.
Speaking on The Sunday Project, an Australian talk show, Kim Kardashian said that she empathises with their situation.
"I can definitely empathize with their need for having a secure, safe place and taking time for themselves and having privacy when they need it".
Kim also referenced Princess Diana, Harry's mother who died in a car accident when he was just twelve years old.
"I think everyone has their own journey. I think their journey is extremely personal, with – you know, what his mother experienced and how her life was so affected by the spotlight and by paparazzi".
The entrepreneur also went on to say how having kids has changed her world view and that when you have kids, the most important thing is ensuring their safety.
"I don’t think anyone can really understand what that’s like except for them. But I think as I’m older and as I have kids, what I would want for them is just the safest place".
Meghan and Harry have dominated the headlines in recent times and received even more media attention after ITV documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey which followed them on their royal tour of South Africa.
Speaking about the effect negative media stories had on her personally, Meghan told ITV's Tom Bradby;
"Any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable, and so that was made really challenging. And then when you have a newborn, you know. And especially as a woman, it’s a lot.
"So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed. It’s um…yeah. I guess, also thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m okay, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes".
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently thought to be taking some time off to enjoy family life with their son before flying to America where they will spend Christmas with Meghan's mum Doria Ragland.
