Prince Harry security battle with King Charles intensifies with alleged NYC paparazzi chase

Prince Harry security battle with King Charles intensifies with alleged NYC paparazzi chase

As Prince Harry continues to fight for his family to be protected when they visit the United Kingdom, he faced a new security threat in the United States.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were involved in a "near catastrophic car chase" after the Ms. Foundation Woman of Vision Awards in New York Tuesday. Meghan Markle, her husband and her mother, Doria Ragland, were allegedly pursued by photographers for over two hours, resulting in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road.

Royal expert Ian Pelham Turner told Fox News Digital that Prince Harry's father, King Charles III, would likely be unhappy that his son could have been seriously harmed. A spokesperson for Prince Harry and Markle confirmed the couple was involved in a car chase "at the hands of a ring of highly aggressive paparazzi."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have since settled in California to raise their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, and have largely relied on paying for their own private protection. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were chased by paparazzi at the Ms. Foundation Woman of Vision Awards in New York City on Saturday night.

Royal expert Hilary Fordwich criticized the "reckless and irresponsible" incident, but also found it "hard to believe" a "two-hour, high-speed chase" happened in the densely-populated city wrought with traffic, pedestrians and ongoing construction projects. New York City Mayor Eric Adams criticized the "reckless and irresponsible" incident, but also found it "hard to believe" a "two-hour, high-speed chase" happened in the densely-populated city wrought with traffic, pedestrians and ongoing construction projects.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Fox News Digital that it must have been scary for the royals to be chased by paparazzi at night over a very lengthy period.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams criticized the "reckless and irresponsible" incident during a press conference, but also found it "hard to believe" a "two-hour, high-speed chase" happened in the The incident that the Sussexes have described as 'near-catastrophic' has echoes of the fateful chase that led to Princess Diana's death in 1997. Diana, along with her boyfriend, Dodi Al-Fayed, and their driver, Henri Paul, were killed while being pursued by photographers in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel.

Prince Harry attended the coronations of Britain's King Charles III and Britain's Camilla, Queen Consort, at Westminster Abbey in central London on May 6. In Britain, Harry has a case against the Home Office regarding the downgrading of security which happened when they ceased to be senior working royals.

He also wants to pay – not the taxpayer – which raises issues as to whether the wealthy should have preferential treatment. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been subjected to a series of security incidents in New York City. Royal author Christopher Andersen believes that the Sussexes are not entitled to taxpayer-funded royal security, and Kinsey Schofield of the "To Di for Daily" podcast said that Harry and Meghan overreacted to the incident.

Shannon Felton Spence echoed similar statements, saying that the British taxpayers cannot be responsible for the security cost of private citizens who have made the choice to base themselves in a foreign country. Patrick J.Brosnan, former NYPD detective and president of Brosnan Risk Consultants, said protection was needed on multiple levels to keep the Sussexes safe, as well as the citizenry of New York City.
