Lady Diana’s memory will always remain alive.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have achieved their goal without any accidents, injuries or arrests. The New York Police Department gave an official declaration concerning the contentious chase of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle by a throng of paparazzi: an episode which was “almost calamitous” according to the spokesperson of the couple, who were in the Big Apple to attend the Woman of Vision Awards. BBC’s description is that the two left the Ziefgeld Theatre around 10 pm in an SUV, then boarded a taxi and endeavored to outrun the reporters. “There were a lot of photographers that made it hard for them to get away,” the authorities explain. The Sussexes’ version is that it was “a very aggressive group of paparazzi”, so the pursuit sustained for more than two hours, involving pedestrians and law enforcers.
