Female MPs from across the political spectrum have written an open letter to the Duchess of Sussex in support of her campaign against the media.
72 MPs signed the letter to Meghan Markle that was led by Halifax Labor MP Holly Lynch.
Others who also put their name on the letter were Labor & # 39; s Dianne Abbot and Jess Phillips, liberal-democrat MP Angela Smith and conservative MP Tracey Crouch.
The letter stated that & # 39; as female MPs of all political beliefs & # 39; the group wanted to stand & # 39; against stories they said they were & # 39; often unpleasant and misleading & # 39; were in a number of national newspapers in the UK.

The letter was led by Halifax MP Holly Lynch (pictured above) who said the MPs would stand by the Duchess & # 39;
It went on: & # 39; On occasions, stories and headlines have infringed your privacy and we have tried to disagree about your character for no good reason as far as we can see.
& # 39; Even more disturbing, we call out what can only be described as an outdated, colonial undertone of some of these stories.
& # 39; As female MPs of all backgrounds, we stand by the fact that it should not be allowed to remain untouched. & # 39;
Halifax MP Holly Lynch tweeted the letter to her followers earlier today

Earlier this month, Markle (above) launched legal action against the Mail on Sunday
The letter addressed that although the women had different lives in public interest, they shared an understanding of the & # 39; abuse and intimidation & # 39; that is used as a means to despise & # 39; women in public office & # 39; to continue their work.
& # 39; We expect the national media to have the integrity to know when a story is in the national interest and when it is trying to break down a woman for no apparent reason.
& # 39; You can assure us that we are in solidarity with you.
& # 39; We will use the means at our disposal to ensure that our press accepts your right to privacy and shows respect, and that their stories reflect the truth. & # 39;
The letter from MPs comes after Prince Harry launched a tirade against the media during his recent ITV documentary.
Earlier this month, his wife Meghan launched legal action against the Mail on Sunday for a claim that the newspaper illegally published one of her private letters to her father Thomas.
The support of the MPs also comes when Ms. Markle's father on screen Wendell Pierce offered his support to the former actress, who said her mother Doria Ragland would have prepared her for the ugly side of the human nature.
