Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Have Filed A Lawsuit Over The Shooting Of Their Son From Drones

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have sued in Los Angeles over the invasion of privacy. In their lawsuit, they complained about unknown photographers who were shooting their 14-month-old son in the garden of their home, Sky News reported, after reading the text of the statement filed in court.

The couple-the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – in their statement filed in court on Thursday, insist on the right of son Archie "to privacy in their home." In their opinion, this right was violated by unnamed photographers, which allows the couple to prosecute anyone who will use photos made by invading their privacy. According to the plaintiffs, the drones used by the paparazzi were flying at an altitude of 20 feet (just over 6 meters) above the house. Quadrocopters were launched into the sky at least three times a day and could make their flights in the early morning and late evening, causing anxiety to neighbors and disrupting the baby's sleep.

The couple notes that they do not seek special treatment and are prepared to be followed by reporters when they appear in public. They consider it unacceptable for photographers to invade the private territory. The couple recalled that they moved from the UK to Canada at the beginning of the year, and six weeks of reporters did not bother her. However, their place of residence was later published in the Daily Mail. After moving to a gated community in the Greater Los Angeles area, the same newspaper published the location again.

In January 2020, Elizabeth II agreed to the refusal of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the duties of senior members of the Royal family. They have retained their dukedoms, but they now earn their own living. On January 18, Buckingham Palace announced that it had reached an agreement with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the terms on which they would relinquish their duties as senior members of the Royal family. Prince Harry and his wife, the American actress Meghan Markle, lost their titles of "Royal Highness" and began an independent life. The British jokingly dubbed this story "Magnit." The future couple met in October 2016 and got married in May 2018. On January 8, 2020, Harry and Meghan announced that they intended to step down as senior members of the Royal family, Meghan left the UK after this announcement and went to her family in Canada with their eight-month-old son Archie.
