Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were bowled over by Paparazzi photos of Archie


Prince Harry has opened up about his and Meghan’s new life in California.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle both spoke about how the tabloid press has negatively impacted their mental health. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex now live in Montecito, but the aggressive media attention didn’t stop once they moved across the pond. During a candid conversation on Dax Shepard’s ‘Armchair Expert’ podcast, Prince Harry said that after he and Meghan first moved to California, the paparazzi rushed to their family in a ” binge eating ”.

Before Prince Harry and Meghan bought their house in Santa Barbara, they were temporarily living in Tyler Perry’s mansion in Los Angeles and had serious privacy concerns. “The helicopters, the drones, the paparazzi cutting the fence – it was madness,” Prince Harry said. “People here, their response was, ‘Well, what do you expect if you live in Los Angeles?’”

Prince Harry stressed that just because he is a public figure does not mean he has no right to any privacy, and also noted that he and Meghan did not actually intend to live in Los Angeles; it was always meant to be a step along the way as they got ready to buy a house.

Prince Harry said the situation had been “much better” since he and Meghan had moved to Santa Barbara, but expressed his anger and frustration that the paparazzi were still going to such great lengths to take pictures of the couple and Archie, and how Page six recently posted photographs of Meghan picking up their two-year-old on his first day of school, without blurring their son’s face.

It is generally considered unethical for publications to post pictures of children of celebrities without their consent; Prince Harry noted that the children did not register to be photographed and that “these children have no choice, they have no say”.

The Duke of Sussex has also revealed that he has made a famous new friend in Santa Barbara, as he keeps in touch with his neighbor, Orlando Bloom. “Just two days ago he sent me a photo of a security guard,” revealed Prince Harry, in which a man was lying in the back of a car with a massive camera, trying to take pictures of the actor with his children.

Prince Harry said he and Meghan have felt much more comfortable since moving to California. “I can really lift my head and I feel different. My shoulders fell, his too. You walk a little more freely. I can take Archie on the back of my bike.

During the podcast, Prince Harry also spoke about mental health and therapy, and how helpless he felt in the midst of royal life. Listen to Prince Harry’s full ‘Chair Expert’ conversation here.
