Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are threatening legal action over paparazzi photos of her and Archie hiking.
Multiple U.K. outlets published photos of Markle, Archie and two dogs hiking on Vancouver Island; images appeared on The Sun and The Daily Mail.
A cease and desist letter was sent to the outlets warning that “action will be taken” if the photos are published or purchased. Legal firm Schillings Partners claim that a paparazzo went incognito in the bushes and snapped photographs of the hike, with the former actress saying she did not consent to the images being taken and feels it is “harassment.”

The cease and desist also reads, “There are serious safety concerns about how the paparazzi are driving and the risk to life they pose.” — in 1997, Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, tragically died trying to evade paparazzi in a car.
