Meghan Markle launches a new lawsuit to protect her son, Archie. She is suing a news agency that sold pictures of her and her boy.
We don’t touch Archie! While Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have gone to war against photographers who wanted to capture images of their son by drones, the Duchess of Sussex goes further to protect her boy.
She is suing a news and image agency for selling photographs of her and her child in a park in Vancouver, Canada, last January, according to MailOnline, picked up by Tatler.
The couple’s lawyer, Jonathan Barnes, told a video conference hearing on September 3 that Meghan and Archie had been “spied on” by a photographer working for Splash News and Pictures Agency, who then sold the images.
The images show the former Suits actress walking in Horth Hill Park with her two dogs and her boy in a baby carrier. The child is barely visible, hidden by her winter clothes and not facing the camera.
He wasn’t at the park by accident
For Meghan Markle, these images represent a misuse of private information and violate data protection law. While the Duchess initially attacked the British section of the news agency, she changed her complaint to directly attack the headquarters, located in the United States.
According to Jonathan Barnes, the photographer who took the pictures had gone the day before to the “private home of the plaintiffs”, to “test his photometer and take pictures through the security fence”. “So he was not at the park by accident,” the lawyer concluded. The war between Meghan Markle and the photographers is still bloody.
