For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, press relations have always been tense. Yesterday, the couple, through their lawyers, addressed the media with an open letter. The reason was the very photos where the happy Megan walks with her son and two dogs in the park. If millions of fans around the world found the photos touching, then the Dukes of Sussex regarded them as a serious interference with their privacy.
The letter says that the actions of the paparazzi are becoming like a real persecution and are causing serious concerns. Recall that Harry's mother Princess Diana died in a car accident in 1997, fleeing the paparazzi chasing her. In his recent statements about his desire to step back from royal duties, Prince Harry has repeatedly referred to his mother's story, explaining his dislike for such increased attention.
In 2019, the Dukes of Sussex have already filed a lawsuit against the British media, accusing them of abuse of power. Commenting on the trial in an official statement, Harry wrote that he remembers well what horrors his mother went through through the fault of the journalists, and that the main task now is to prevent a repetition of this story with his own family.
