UK: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle threaten legal action over paparazzi photos of her hiking with Archie

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new life is getting off to a bumpy start.

On Tuesday, paparazzi photos taken of Markle hiking with their infant son, Archie, and two dogs on Vancouver Island appeared on the cover of the U.K.’s The Sun as well as on other outlets, including The Daily Mail.

A legal representative for the couple — who stepped down as senior members of the royal family — sent a warning letter to British news outlets saying “action will be taken” if the photos are published or purchased.


According to NBC News, the law firm Schillings Partners said that a paparazzo hid in the bushes and spied on Markle to get the photos, which were taken Monday.

 And while the former actress has a grin on her face in the published pictures, she did not agree to have her picture taken, deeming it “harassment.”

 It also said that paparazzi have been camped outside where the couple is staying in Canada (Harry joined his family on Tuesday after finalizing “Megxit” plans) and taking photos with telephoto lenses.

The letter said, “There are serious safety concerns about how the paparazzi are driving and the risk to life they pose.” Of course, Princess Diana — Harry’s mother — died in a 1997 car crash while trying to escape paparazzi.
