Diana's curse: paparazzi almost killed Harry and Meghan
Prince Harry, Meghan, and her mother, Doria Ragland have been chased by "extremely aggressive paparazzi" in New York City. The incident occurred after the family attended a social event this Tuesday.
"Last night, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Ms Ragland were involved in a near catastrophic car chase at the hands of a ring of highly aggressive paparazzi," The Gardian quoted a New York City police spokesman
The NYPD representative also said that due to the large number of photographers, the couple's transport became "challenging", but fortunately, they arrived at their destination without reported collisions or injuries.
"There were numerous photographers that made their transport challenging," the newspaper quoted a police spokesman.
In an email to The Post, a spokeswoman for the couple stated: "This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD officers."
New York City mayor, Eric Adams, commenting on the events, said he was aware of the incident and confirmed that two NYPD officers "could have been injured".
As a reminder, on May 16, the youngest son of King Charles III of Great Britain, Prince Harry, made his first public appearance with his wife Meghan Markle in a long time. According to Page Six, the scandalous couple attended the Women of Vision Awards, where Meghan received an award for her contribution to protecting women's rights. After leaving the Ziegfeld Theater, the family got into their car, followed by about 12 "very aggressive" paparazzi.
The Duke of Sussex has frequently spoken about his anger about press intrusion, which he blames for the death of his mother Diana.
The terrible accident that killed Princess Diana occurred in Paris in 1997. Then, during a high-speed chase, trying to escape from the paparazzi, the car with Princess Diana crashed in one of the tunnels of Paris. Earlier, in his memoirs "The Spare," Prince Harry described the horrors of media harassment in his own life and that of his family. Harry and his wife also expressed their concern about excessive paparazzi attention when they filmed a documentary for Netflix, where in one scene the couple was driving with a driver in New York City "clearly feeling terrified of being followed by photographers."
