Royals can expect 'deferential' Canadian coverage: expert

A journalism expert says Prince Harry and Meghan may have been drawn to Canada's "deferential" media culture as they mulled their part-time move across the pond. The couple says they're taking a new tact with the press as part of the royal shakeup that will see them split their time between Canada and the U.K. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex say they're opting out of the "royal rota" system, which grants a handful of U.K. outlets special access to the House of Windsor, in favour of working with "young, up-and-coming journalists." The director of the journalism program at U of T says both Harry and Meghan have been burned by the relationship between the British media and Buckingham Palace. Jeffrey Dvorkin says Prince Harry saw his mother, Diana, "destroyed" by the paparazzi, while Meghan, who is half black, has been subjected to racist coverage in the U.K. Dvorkin says Canadian journalists tend to be less intrusive than their U.K. counterparts. However, he hopes the influx of international competition will push them to dig deeper in covering the royals.
