NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Britain's Prince Harry expressed safety concerns Tuesday for his girlfriend and "Suits" actress Meghan Markle. 

In a statement issued by Kensington Palace, he warned them about using racial overtones in the coverage of their relationship since Markle is mixed race. The statement says Markle, who lives in Toronto has had photographers try to break into her house. Newspapers also offered money to her ex-boyfriend in exchange for information. Friends, co-workers and family members have also been bombarded by the media in light of their relationship. 

"Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle's safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her," the statement read. 

Prince Harry says he hopes the media can "pause and reflect before any further damage is done."

#PoorBarron

Whether you're for him or against, President-elect Donald Trump has most likely been the topic of conversation this week. 

But his son Barron may be giving him a run for his money on social media. Barron,10, quickly became an internet sensation when viewers caught him struggling to stay awake during his dad's victory speech close to 3 a.m. on election night. Camera's caught Barron rolling his eyes, and swaying from side to side while his dad proudly stood at the podium. Social media users started a hashtag "poor Barron" while others suggested Barron be put in bed or get a Red Bull.

Looks like all those late nights of supporting his father finally caught up with him. 

Barron will be the youngest presidential son since John F. Kennedy Jr.
