Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle were caught on Tuesday, May 16, in a “car chase” involving “very aggressive paparazzi” in New York (United States) and the outcome of which could have been “catastrophic”, the couple’s spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday.

This chase “relentless, which lasted nearly two hours, nearly caused collisions with other drivers, pedestrians and two officers of the New York police”added this spokesperson in an email, the prince and his wife living in California.

The couple, who were in a car with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, had just left a party in New York where the Duchess of Sussex received an award from the philanthropic and feminist organization “Ms. Foundation for Women” .

“Very intrusive practice”

“While a public figure arouses interest, this should never be at the expense of anyone’s safety”warned the spokesperson, denouncing the “dissemination of these images (…) encouraging a very intrusive practice [dans la vie privée] which is dangerous”.

Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, left the British Royal Family in early 2020 to move to California due to conflict and tension and media pressure. Harry has long blamed the press and paparazzi for causing the car crash in Paris in August 1997 that killed his mother, Princess Diana.
