Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan: next round in the fight against the British tabloids

Prince Harry (35) and Duchess Meghan (38) are known to have a tense to difficult relationship with the British tabloid press. Now there seems to be new trouble. British tabloids, including the "Sun", have published paparazzi photos of Meghan showing them walking with Baby Archie on Vancouver Island. According to "Sky News" and the "Guardian", the couple is threatening legal action if the media continue to violate their privacy.

Intrusive paparazzi?

According to Harry and Meghan's lawyers, the pictures were taken without the Duchess's consent. The photographers hid in the bushes and spied on Meghan. The lawyers also allege that paparazzi are camping near Harry and Meghan's home, using long-range lenses to try and shoot them at their property. They also raised serious safety concerns about how paparazzi drive in Canada.

It is not her first move against the boulevard. In early October 2019, the couple sued "Mail on Sunday" because the British tabloid had printed a handwritten letter from the Duchess to her father Thomas Markle (75). Harry said at the time, among other things, "Simply put, it's bullying that scares and silences people. We all know that this is not acceptable at any level."

The grandson of Queen Elizabeth II (93) is now with his family in Canada. It is not yet known if and when the family will return to the UK.
