Harry and Meghan threaten further legal action against media

Harry and Meghan threaten further legal action against media

Prince Harry has only just touched down in Canada to begin his new life with Meghan away from royal duties, but the couple hasn’t been able to escape the media glare.

Harry and Meghan threaten further legal action against media

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have threatened legal action after Meghan was snapped out walking on Vancouver Island with baby Archie and her two dogs.

After the images surfaced, Harry and Meghan’s team at law firm Schillings sent a legal notice warning the UK press, TV and photo agencies not to use them.

Lawyers for the pair allege the pictures were taken without Meghan’s consent by photographers who were hiding in the bushes.

They also claim photographers were permanently camped outside their home and had tried to take pictures of them inside it with long-range lenses, according to Sky News.

It comes after Harry landed in Canada to be reunited with his wife and eight-month-old son.

The couple has had a fraught relationship with the media throughout the duration of their relationship.

The Duke and Duchess have both already taken legal action against the press for alleged invasion of their privacy.

In October, Buckingham Palace announced Prince Harry was suing the owners of tabloids The Sun and The Daily Mirror, claiming his phone had been hacked and alleging his voicemail messages were accessed.

It came shortly after Meghan launched legal proceedings against the Mail on Sunday over the publication of a private letter.

The legal action followed a series of strongly-worded statements from the Palace on behalf of Prince Harry regarding the press interest in his relationship with Meghan.

Early in their relationship, Kensington Palace released a statement saying Meghan had been subject to “a wave of abuse and harassment”, including “racial undertones of comment pieces”.

Prince Harry also referred to the media as a “powerful force” when he delivered a speech at a dinner organised for supporters of his HIV charity Sentebale on Sunday.

“When I lost my mum 23 years ago, you took me under your wing. You’ve looked out for me for so long, but the media is a powerful force, and my hope is one day our collective support for each other can be more powerful because this is so much bigger than just us,” he said.
