Prince Harry & Wife Meghan Chased By Paparazzi In New York, Driver Reveals It All

Must Read

United Kingdom’s Prince Harry, along with his wife Meghan Markel and her mother Doria Ragland escaped a “near catastrophic” incident where their car was being chased by press photographers after they attended a function in New York, according to Harry’s spokesperson on Wednesday.

The spokesperson also said that “a ring of highly aggressive paparazzi” were chasing the couple in many cars that were being driven dangerously while risking the lives of the couple and Meghan’s mother. He said, “This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD (New York Police Department) officers.”

They were definitely jolted by the incident but were left unharmed. The New York Police Department (NYPD) helped the security team which was responsible for ensuring the safety of the couple. NYPD’s chief spokesperson Julian Phillips said, “There were numerous photographers that made their transport challenging. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at their destination and there were no reported collisions, summonses, injuries, or arrests.”

The American daily newspaper, Washington Post, interviewed the couple’s taxi driver Sukhcharn Singh who said he was driving them all along with their security guard for almost 10 minutes and returning them to the police station. “I don’t think I would call it a chase. I never felt like I was in danger. It wasn’t like a car chase in a movie. They (the couple) were quiet and seemed scared but its New York — it’s safe,” he said and added that two cars had followed them and came just right next to them to take pictures and make videos.

Social media posts featuring Harry, Meghan, and her mother in the back seat of a taxi in New York were described by their spokesperson as “a small glimpse at the defense and decoys required to end the harassment”. The spokesperson said that Tuesday’s chase, which included paparazzi driving on the sidewalk, running red lights and driving while taking pictures, might have been fatal.
