Meghan Markle and Harry: the war with the paparazzi continues

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry filed a lawsuit against the paparazzi agency Splash UK, which had taken stolen pictures of the Duchess and her son Archie in January. A settlement was reached.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry do not intend to let it happen. They appeal once again to justice to preserve their private life. The Guardian reveals that a hearing was held this Friday, December 18, after months of a legal battle against the paparazzi agency Splash UK, which took Meghan Markle and her son Archie’s photo during a walk in a Vancouver Island forest in January.

A spokesman for Schillings, the law firm that represents the couple in all their lawsuits against tabloids, said they “have settled the legal claim they made earlier this year against the Splash UK paparazzi agency. An agreement was reached between the two parties: Splash UK agreed “not to take any pictures of the Duke, Duchess and their son in the future”.

Illegal, invasive and intrusive” behavior

“This agreement is a clear signal that the illegal, invasive and intrusive behavior of the paparazzi will no longer be tolerated, and that the couple is taking these problems seriously, as any family would,” the spokesman said in the newspaper. He went on to say: “A simultaneous and similar petition against Splash US, a subsidiary of Splash UK, is still pending in the British court system.

This is their seventh complaint of the year against a media company. Their last legal recourse dates back to November 27: an umpteenth offensive against the Daily Mail, which they accuse of defamation. Four months earlier, they had also filed a complaint against them for twice revealing their exact place of residence.

Flying over their homes with drones was also the subject of the complaint. In April, their first lawsuit against the British newspaper was for the publication of a private letter that Meghan Markle wrote to her father.
