Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly been forced to move out of their new Cotswold home after intrusive photographs were taken by the press. The news reports come after a High Court hearing today (16th May).
Reports suggest that a paparazzi helicopter flew over their Cotswold home, which the couple have only recently acquired, and took photos which invaded their privacy. The images are thought to have shown the inside of the royal couple’s dining room, bedroom and living room.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex took legal action against the news agency responsible, Splash, saying it meant they could no longer live at the property.
The news reports that Splash have agreed to pay damages to the Duke and Duchess and have apologised in court.
In a statement, Buckingham Palace said Harry “acknowledges and welcomes the formal apology from Splash News and Picture Agency”.
This news comes just one week after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their first child to world, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
