Jeremy Corbyn agrees with concerns raised by Prince Harry about ‘racial undertones’ in press coverage of his wife Meghan, the Labour leader’s office said today.

A spokeswoman for Mr Corbyn said: ‘Jeremy has commented in the past in relation to Prince Harry and Meghan, about press intrusion and its impact on people and their families and, to use Prince Harry’s words as well, the ‘racial undertones’ in relation to how the media has approached Meghan.’

She said Mr Corbyn had ‘spoken out’ about the issue and ‘understands how press intrusion can have a negative impact on people and their private lives’.

In November 2016, Harry used a statement from his communications secretary to lash out at the ‘wave of abuse and harassment’ the US actress had faced from the media.

He cited the ‘racial undertones of comment pieces’ among his concerns.
