Last minute information. According to the BBC, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle were caught up in a car chase, which could have turned into a drama as one of their spokespeople revealed. On Twitter, Omid Scobie, author of the book Finding Freedom gave more details on Wednesday 17 May. “Last night, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Doria Ragland were involved in a car chase with very aggressive paparazzi that could have turned catastrophic,” he relayed, according to a spokesperson, before continuing: “This fierce chase, which lasted over 2 hours, resulted in multiple near misses involving other drivers on the road, as well as pedestrians and two NYPD officers.
In conclusion, it states: “While being a public figure brings with it a level of public interest, it should never come at the expense of anyone’s safety. A near miss that recalls the worst hours of the British monarchy, and the tragic death of Lady Diana in a car crash in August 1997.
Update: The US police spoke out on Wednesday evening and questioned the couple’s claims. “On Wednesday evening, May 16, the NYPD assisted the private security team protecting the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Numerous photographers made it difficult to transport them. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at their destination and no collisions, summonses, injuries or arrests were reported.” A nuanced version that is being debated.
A ceremony under very high escort
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle accompanied by Doria Ragland were in New York to attend a ceremony. Indeed, the Duchess of Sussex received a prestigious award on Tuesday 16 May. The Suits actress looked stunning in a strapless gold dress. As she took the stage to receive her award, to the music of Alicia Keys’ Girl on Fire, Prince Harry’s wife thanked the audience and said to them, “It’s never too late to start. You can be the visionary of your own life,” she said, not without pride. The Sussex couple arrived and departed from the back of the building in an SUV and were surrounded by multiple security guards. This was the first appearance for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry since the coronation of Charles III and Camilla on 6 May.
