Prince Harry And Meghan Markle ‘Proudly’ Celebrate Pride Month With Powerful Message: ‘Love Is Love’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are wasting no time in celebrating Pride Month, which kicks off June 1.

To honour the occasion, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared a special message on social media.

“Continuing with our tradition to rotate the accounts we follow based on causes and social issues that matter to us: For the month of June we ‘proudly’ shine a light on PRIDE,” the couple wrote on Instagram.

“This month we pay tribute to the accounts supporting the LGBTQ+ community – those young and old, their families and friends, accounts that reflect on the past and are hopeful for a deservedly more inclusive future,” the message continued. “We stand with you and support you 🌈 Because it’s very simple: love is love.”

The message was accompanied by a collage of photos taken from the Instagram accounts they’re following, including such LGBTQ organizations as the Trevor Project and Human Rights Campaign, along with a photo of Princess Diana.

The couple’s celebration of Pride is the latest sign of royal support for the LGBTQ community.

Back in June 2016, Prince William made history as the first member of the British royal family to appear on the cover of Attitude, Britain’s largest gay magazine.

“No one should be bullied for their sexuality or any other reason and no one should have to put up with the kind of hate that these young people have endured in their lives,” the prince said in a statement to the magazine.

“The young gay, lesbian and transgender individuals I met through Attitude are truly brave to speak out and to give hope to people who are going through terrible bullying right now. Their sense of strength and optimism should give us all encouragement to stand up to bullying wherever we see it.”
