In July, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex filed a lawsuit with the Los Angeles County Superior Court against a news agency over taking drone photos of their son Archie, claiming that the pictures were an invasion of privacy.
Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have received an apology from the agency X17, a celebrity photo and gossip website, over taking intrusive and illegal pictures of the former royal couple’s son Archie, Sky News reported on Thursday, citing the couple’s lawyer Michael Kump.
The story goes back to July when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex took legal action against an individual who photographed then-14-month-old Archie and Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland at their residence during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Kump said that X17 has apologised and agreed to a “reimbursement of legal fees”.
In the court documents, Harry and Meghan argued that due to the photos in question, “up to 40 paparazzi and media organisations [began] descending on this peaceful community from hundreds of miles away”.
Prince Harry and his wife Megan announced stepping down from their royal duties in January, shortly thereafter moving to first Canada and then later to the US, choosing Los Angeles, California, as their new home.
