It’s the act that matters

It’s the act that matters

Last week it was announced that Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, is filing a lawsuit against the press. This concerns the bad media behavior when it comes to his wife Meghan. Of course this announcement has caused a lot of reactions, mainly the media. To my opinion some reactions show the urgency of his action. That the media is taken their role to far and they don’t know when enough is enough.

The Dutch Mediacode

This is the reason why the Dutch royal family has introduced the ‘Mediacode’ in the Netherlands. It’s a code for the Dutch press to respect the privacy of the royal family. Which means not taking and selling any pictures or other footages when it comes to the family of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima.

It may not be a code the Dutch press is happy about, but they handle it with respect and they know there will be consequences when they act against this Mediacode. This means that the children of the Dutch King and Queen can live their lives in privacy and as normal as possible in their situation.

Time for action

Perhaps something like the Mediacode could be introduced for the British royal family, but I am sure there are specific reasons why this hasn’t happend yet, unless the sad death of Princess Diana years ago. A loss the whole world grieved about, especially her sons William and Harry. So I think it’s no more than reasonable for Prince Harry to take action. To protect his wife and family for the media who has lost al dignity when it comes to the royal family, to their own profession and to all human beings. No matter what the outcome may be of this lawsuit, it’s the act that counts. Not only the press, not only the people but also his wife and son will always know he stood up for them.

At this moment she felt like a warm fire. Comfortable and calm.

It was difficult not to look at her. Not to pay attention to this unusual creature at his side. Even though she was so sweet and sincere, he couldnโ€™t let his own feelings lead the way. For they will ruin all the light she gave in his presence. Ignoring his feelings was what he was willing to do. 

For her, only for her.

Donโ€™t blame me for you leaving, she screamed. It was our destiny and all I did was survive to support you in the best way I knew how. So this is how I deal. This is how I am yours. This is how I survive to love you. Even when I lose myself, I know I am not losing you. Thatโ€™s all that matters. Thatโ€™s how I love.

She was all about sport and prestige. It was the only way she knew to acknowledge her existence. There is no other way. All she knew was proving her right to be, just be. If she didnโ€™t. If she let go. She lost, like before. She would fall in an empty unfamiliar darkness and that was a place she never wanted to be ever again. So she works, she trains, she fights. All day, every day, her whole life. Until her world stops. Someday. ~ ๐Ÿ–ค๐ŸŒธ~ #fighter #fiction #fictionwriter #amwritingfiction #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofinsta #fictionofinstagram #poetry #poets #poetsofinstagram #warrior #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness
