Meghan Markle and Prince Harry began their new life in Canada with a legal warning to the UK media.
Hours after settling in Canada, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle issued a legal warning to the media over the photographs of the Duchess of Sussex at a park that were published by certain UK outlets.
The pictures featured Meghan carrying her son Archie in the baby sling at the park in Vancouver Island. Their two dogs and bodyguards accompanied the Duchess. As per a report published in The Guardian, Meghan and Harry’s lawyers alleged that her pictures were taken by photographers without her consent.
The lawyers, hence, have threatened legal action over the pictures.
Prince Harry landed in Canada to be with Meghan and Archie on January 20. Ahead of his arrival, Prince Harry had addressed the audience for the first time after his Royal exit at a private dinner in London for his charity Sentebale on January 19.
While delivering an emotional speech, Prince Harry had said that he had “no other option” but to give up his official Royal duties and begin a new life in Canada with his wife and son.
Meanwhile, the Buckingham Palace announced in a statement on January 19 that Harry and Meghan will have to drop their His and Her Royal Highness (HRH) titles and will also not receive public funds for their Royal duties.
The couple will also repay £2.4 million of British taxpayers’ money spent to renovate their UK family home, Frogmore Cottage.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had announced their decision of stepping back as “senior Royals” in a statement on January 8. “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen,” the statement published on the Instagram account of Sussex Royal read.
