Kensington Palace are confused about what mainstream newspapers are writing and what is happening on the internet, according to a former newspaper editor.
Former newspaper editor and media commentator Paul Connew told Julia Hartley-Brewer that the statement is "extraordinary" but also "somewhat baffling."
He believes “the Palace are getting a little confused" between what "mainstream newspapers are writing and what is happening on the wild west of cyberspace on Twitter" or "people reacting on newspaper’s own websites."
Connew also thinks the alleged harassing of Markle's mother "is probably down to North American or other foreign paparazzi."
