“Pictures in the woods.” Harry and Megan’s problems begin in Canada
Hours after Prince Harry arrived in Canada, preparing to start his new life with his wife Meghan Markle, and his infant son Archie, journalists began to “harass” their personal lives, from which the family fled in Britain.
According to the Guardian, the couple’s lawyers threatened to sue paparazzi photographers for photos they took of Megan while she was hiking with her son and her dog in a park.
Some British newspapers on Tuesday published pictures of Megan’s outing in a public park near a forest in Vancouver, Canada, carrying her baby son with her two children, as well as two bodyguards.
Harry and Megan’s lawyers said the photos were taken without Megan’s consent or knowledge, and that the photographers were hiding in the trees.
At dawn on Tuesday, British newspapers also published photographs of the moment Prince Harry arrived in Canada on a public plane, dressed in civilian clothes, without his knowledge.
The prosecution of the journalists does not seem to stop after the couple migrate across the Atlantic to Canada, as their story continues to interest the British public, as well as the British press.
Britain’s queen’s grandson, Prince Harry, on Monday expressed his sadness at having to give up his royal duties and blamed journalists who had “desecrated his life since his birth”, he said.
Speaking at the Centennial Charity, Harry referred to his late mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car accident while trying to escape the Paparazzi, saying he had no choice but to step down as he and his wife, Meghan Markle, sought a quiet life.
“When I lost my mother 23 years ago, she embraced me, but the media has a lot of power, and I hope the day will come when our collective support will be stronger because that’s much bigger than us,” the Duke of Sussex said, according to The Associated Press.
