Royal expatriates Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have filed a lawsuit against Los Angeles paparazzi to stop the “disgusting and wrong” sale of a photograph taken of their 14-month-old son Archie.
The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Thursday, is an emotion-filled legal broadside aimed at stopping publication of the photograph, taken by an unknown photographer, and the “manufactured feeding frenzy” caused by the paparazzi.
“This action arises out of the relentless and quite frankly shocking efforts of the tabloid media to profit from serial intrusions on the privacy of a 14-month-old child in his own home,” the court papers state. “And the desire and responsibility of any parent to do what is necessary to protect their children.”
