“It could have been fatal” Harry and Meghan were involved in a paparazzi chase through the streets of New York
Leaving a prestigious gala event, paparazzi photographers chased the royal couple Markle’s car for two hours. “This relentless pursuit almost created a large number of accidents involving vehicles, pedestrians and two police officers,” said a spokesman for the royal couple
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were involved in a car chase that almost ended in disaster, after the Dukes of Sussex left the prestigious gala in New York where they were present, when the paparazzi started chasing the royal couple. “This relentless pursuit, which lasted over two hours, almost caused a large number of accidents,” said the couple’s spokesman.
The statement also said that “Harry and Meghan understand that being a public figure comes with a certain public interest, but this should not come at the cost of anyone’s safety.” Chris Sanchez, a member of the couple’s security team, described the chase as particularly dangerous and said “never I have never seen or experienced anything like this. It was chaotic. There were dozens of vehicles – cars, scooters and bicycles. It could have been deadly. They got on the sidewalk, ran a red light and at one point blocked the vehicle the couple was in and started filming them.”
They also added that in the end there were no collisions and no one was injured. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived at their destination and no injuries or arrests have been reported following the incident,” said Julian Phillips, Deputy Commissioner of Police. And of course, it is impossible to ignore the fact that the case recalls the story of the death of Harry’s mother Princess Diana, who was killed in Paris in 1997, after a continuous pursuit of the paparazzi photographers who tried to document her and her partner.
