Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Children Continue to be Press Targets
It’s been four years since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex walked down the aisle at Westminster Abbey and they’ve since welcomed two children – son Archie, 3, and daughter Lilibet, 1.
The couple currently live in a secure neighborhood at Montecito, California, with their two young children.
Regarding their children’s public image and privacy, Harry and Meghan are careful and only a couple pictures of the kids are available to the public. However, according to a royal expert, this is in no way stops the media’s interest in capturing the 7th and 8th in line to the British throne.
Royal Expert Analyzes America’s Interest in Harry and Meghan’s Children
Australian royal writer Daniela Elser talked about Harry and Meghan’s dwindling popularity in the U.S., adding that it’s still more likely that the pair will be snapped in their celebrity-rich neighborhood than they would be if they lived in the U.K.
“Harry and Meghan might not be enjoying Beyonce-levels of popularity (the most recent polling shows that less than half of Americans view them favourably) but there is no end to the fascination with the nation’s very own branch of the Royal Family.
“The whole family is, in short, valuable prey for anyone who might come across the family out and about.
“What will it mean for Archie and his little sister Lilibet to grow up in a country where there is a ready market for iPhone snaps of them?
Archie and Lili Kept Cooped Up
“The Sussex family might live on a seven-acre estate but the minute they set foot outside those gates, they are unprotected from the glare of lenses, both professional and amateur.”
Elser further added that the couple can’t solve their problems by keeping their children indoors most of the time. “A huge back yard, children’s playhouse, tennis court and a pool might provide more than enough entertainment and space for little ones to play and roam safety way from the gaze of the public, and press, but the couple can’t keep Archie and Lili cooped up at home forever.”
