Prince Harry confirms he's dating Northwestern alum Meghan Markle in press slam

Britain's Prince Harry confirmed his relationship with Northwestern University graduate Meghan Markle in a Kensington Palace statement that slammed tabloid writers and "social media trolls" for racist comments.

"His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment. Some of this has been very public -- the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments," read the statement issued Tuesday by the prince's communications secretary via the palace Twitter account.
