The Duke of Sussex, 37, has described online misinformation as a “global humanitarian issue” and contributed to a report by a US think tank. The royal stated the worrying issue must be combated with policies including investment in local journalism as well as cracking down on false content sharers.

The Duke shared the report on his and Meghan Markle’s Archewell charitable foundation’s website.

He stated: “I hope to see the substantive and practical recommendations of our commission taken up by the tech industry, the media industry, by policymakers, and leaders.

“This affects not some of us, but all of us.”

However, his efforts have been bashed by Rebecca English, Daily Mail’s Royal Editor when speaking to Palace Confidential.

The report urged “substantial” investment in local journalism, more diverse workforces at social media companies, holding misinformation spreaders to account, and creating a governmental “national response strategy” for tackling misinformation.

The report said: “Information disorder makes any health crisis more deadly.

“It creates a culture in which racist, ethnic, and gender attacks are seen as solutions, not problems.

“Today, mis- and disinformation have become a force multiplier for exacerbating our worst problems as a society.

“Hundreds of millions of people pay the price, every single day, for a world disordered by lies.”
