The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son is suing a photo agency for allegedly breaching his privacy, writes Chief Reporter Sam Greenhill.
He may have only celebrated his first birthday last month, but already the toddler has a team of celebrity lawyers. Archie is claiming in a High Court writ that his ‘private information’ was ‘misused’.
The case is believed to relate to paparazzi photographs of Archie and his mother as she carried him during a walk in a park when they were in Canada in January. The photos, distributed by Los Angeles photo agency Splash, showed Meghan smiling as she trekked along a woodland path carrying her son in a sling.
Neither the baby boy’s face nor any other part of his body could be seen, as he was wrapped in winter clothing and facing away from the lens. The High Court writ is brought in the names of Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and ‘The Duchess of Sussex, HRH’. She is described as Archie’s ‘litigation friend’, a legal term for someone who makes decisions for a child involved in a court case.
