Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have told Britain's tabloid newspapers they will no longer have anything to do with them.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who gave up their jobs as working royals at the end of last month, have made little secret of their displeasure with the tabloids.
In a letter to the editors of The Sun, Daily Mail, Daily Express, and Daily Mirror newspapers, the couple said they have watched people they know - as well as complete strangers - have their lives, quote, "completely pulled apart for no good reason, other than the fact that salacious gossip boosts advertising revenue." The letter added that from now on there will be "no corroboration and zero engagement" with those publications.
Last year, Harry said he would sue Rupert Murdoch's Sun and the Daily Mirror newspapers.
It's after a court in London heard in 2013 that voicemail messages on his phone were hacked by staff working for Murdoch's now-defunct News of the World.
He also blames the tabloids for the death of his mother, Princess Diana, in Paris 23 years ago.
She was killed when a car she was traveling in crashed after being chased by paparazzi photographers.
At the time, Harry was only 12 years-old.
Last October, he said his "deepest fear is history is history repeating itself." Later this week, Meghan's legal case against one of the newspapers will be heard at London's high court.
It's over the publication by the Mail of Sunday of a private letter she wrote to her father.
The Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex have agreed to divide the future proceeds of their mother’s memorial fund between them as part of the separation of the brothers’ charitable activities. According to financial documents, an agreement was signed in December last year between the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the now abandoned Sussex Royal Foundation.

Princess Diana is perhaps best known for her roles as a humanitarian, style icon and mother. It was the latter role that made her particularly relatable to people around the world. The Prince and Princess of Wales welcomed Prince William in 1982 and Prince Harry in 1984. Until her death in 1997, Diana made many public appearances with her sons, in both formal and informal settings, which resulted in countless sweet mom moments.
On what would have been her 59th birthday, we take a look at Princess Diana's impact on the Royal Family.
