Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are annoyed about a paparazzi shot of their son, Archie, which they say was snapped in their own backyard, so now they’re suing.
The former Royals say the photos are being shopped as if they were shot during a public outing in Malibu.
Prince Harry and Meghan say Archie has not been anywhere in public, let alone Malibu, since they moved to Los Angeles.
They say the photographer is purposely lying about the location because the person knows “unsolicited photographs of a young child in the privacy of his own home are very much unlawful.”
Michael Kump is the attorney handling the lawsuit for the former royals.
Harry and Meghan revealed they took extensive measures to ensure their privacy at their new home in the L.A. area.
They put a large mesh fence around the property to guard against telephoto lenses.
ACCORDING TO THE LAWSUIT
Photographer ‘name withheld’ recently –crossed a red line for any parent by Photoshopping pics of Archie.
Meghan and Harry say the intrusion went down at Tyler Perry‘s Beverly Hills estate, where the former royals are staying– TMZ reports.
Weird insights… Tyler’s house is in a gated community and he lives at the very farthest point from the front gate, making it especially hard for an intruder to go undetected.
Helicopters do fly-overs, and some photographers have cut holes in their security fences.
POINTS WORTH NOTING
They’re suing for invasion of privacy, and also want an order for the photographer to turn over the photos.
They don’t know if anyone’s purchased the shots yet, but they say they’re putting all media on notice … the photos were illegally taken, and not in Malibu.
The former royals says ‘it’s our choice to direct when and how we share photos of our boy’.
The power couples continued — we have posted pics of Archie on social media in order to reduce the “reward” for paparazzi photos.
