Harry and Megan file a lawsuit to protect their son's right to privacy


The Duke and Duchess of Los Angeles allegedly used their 14-month-old son Archie in Los Angeles to take photos in the backyard of their home.

The couple alleges that anonymous photographers infringed on their privacy, allowing them to use soaps to identify those trying to sell them until they find the photos.

The couple said in their complaint on Thursday that they were not seeking special treatment and hoped the media would follow suit when it was public, with photographers attacking the privacy of their home.

The case alleges that before the Daily Mail was published, Harry and Megan flew from the UK to Canada and enjoyed six weeks uninterrupted.

They soon moved to a gated community mostly in the Los Angeles area, but again their location was published by the same newspaper.

Due to the paparazzi interest, drones can fly up to 20 feet from home three times a day.
Between 5.30am and 7pm, helicopters flew over the house, disturbing neighbors and waking up baby Archie.
The complaint alleges that some photographers even cut holes in the security fence around the house.

The family has tried to ignore it, but a recent incident describes it as "crossing the red line for any parent".

Although Archie has not been in public or in Malibu since the family arrived in the U.S., Harry and Megan say someone is selling photos taken during a recent public shooting in Malibu.


The couple alleged that the photo was taken for their backyard activities without their knowledge.

The court documents say: “Innocent people who bought these photographs are believed to have taken the photographs in public.

"They did it on purpose because they knew that unsolicited photographs of children were very illegal in the privacy of their own home."

The couple complained that they had "done everything in their power to stay away from the campaign," except for their work, which they agreed was a newspaper.

"But the photos in question are not news," it continued. “They are not for the public good.

"The sole purpose of taking and/or selling such aggressive photos is to profit from children. Such sales move the paparazzi market and do more harm.

"Suspicious images are at the disposal of anonymous adults and are already disgusting to show and share with thousands of buyers and thousands of consumers."

The Law County Superior Court confirmed to Sky News that the case had been registered and given a case number.

A statement from the couple's lawyers added: "Every individual and family member in California is guaranteed the privacy of their home by law, and drones, helicopters, and telephoto lenses do not infringe on that right.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are filing this case to protect their youngest son's right to privacy from intrusion by photographers and to find and prevent those who want to profit from these illegal activities."
