Princess Harry and Princess Meghan Take Action to Protect Their Privacy

Protecting your privacy in this day of age has become really hard. Regular people are having trouble managing their privacy or social media and various accounts, but the celebrities are the ones who have it worse. The gift of popularity comes with its flaws and burdens and one of them is that regular people are often interested in your personal lives. When it comes to celebrities, hacking and following their social accounts is just the start.

One of the most popular couples in the world, the royal prince and princess of the UK Prince Harry and Prince Meghan, have experienced such harassment first hand very recently. Ever since the announcement of the Princess being pregnant and with the expectancy of their first child, the couple has been in the limelight much more. That is why there has been a large number of stockers and newspapers trying to report on the story first and get an exclusive scoop.

Namely, the royal couple was one of the first celebrities whose privacy has been affected by drones. Luckily, these are not drone strikes as some may think. These are unfortunately man manned drones that are operated by people who want to take exclusive pictures or make videos. A number of celebrities have already been spied on without their knowledge, with drone photography already becoming the newest social phenomena among paparazzi.

Due to their pregnancy, and also shortly after getting married, the Royal couple signed a two-year long lease on a property in Cotswold. They also spend quite a long time decorating the place and getting it just the way they wanted it to be. It was even more surprising when it was made public that the couple had abruptly moved out.

It was later revealed that both Prince Harry and Princess Meghan Markle have decided to sue Splash News for revealing details about their private lives and for posting unauthorized pictures.

As things turned out, Splash News used a wltoys drone to take pictures of the couple’s newly minted estate. The pictures emerged shortly after and they showed detail insight of both the outside but also some parts of the interior of the house. After the investigation, Splash News was forced to take down all the unlawfully made materials from their platforms and was also asked to pay damages to the couples for their transgression.

This news gets even more surprising as the Prince and the Princess have chosen this area specifically because of its secluded position and because of it being safe. They simply wanted a place away from all the prying eyes and all of the people so they can raise their child in peace.

The incident was, in the end, ruled out with a drone ban so nobody in the vicinity of the couple will be able to use drones in order to take photos. It is probably for the best, in our opinion.

Unfortunately, this is just one of the many strings of incidents that have to happen using drones. More and more paparazzi are doing this just to get a few exclusive pictures. The Prince and the Princess of the UK are probably the most high-profile couple that has been damaged by this sort of spy photography and we regret to say that it probably won’t be the last. But we expect many celebrities to push back and to start supporting this ban on drone photography which has started.
