Royals issue legal threat over Canada paparazzi

Lawyers for Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have issued a legal threat to media organizations over paparazzi that have followed them to Canada.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved to Canada partly to escape Britain's tabloid press.

But the couple says that recent photos of Meghan walking her dogs in a Canadian park that surfaced in several of the papers amount to what they call harassment.

Harry has said in the past that Meghan faced, quote, "bullying" from the tabloids similar to what his mother, Princess Diana, faced.

Diana died in a car accident in 1997 trying to escape paparazzi.

The couple also won substantial damages last year from one outlet that took aerial photos of their old home in England.

The lack of privacy forced them to move out.

Buckingham Palace confirmed over the weekend that Harry and Meghan would no longer be working members of the royal family, losing much of its financial contributions as they transition to their new, more removed, roles.
