Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Reach Settlement with Paparazzi Agency That Invaded Archie's Privacy

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reached a settlement with the paparazzi agency that they sued for taking photos of their son Archie at a private home.

Over the summer, the couple’s attorney announced that they were filing a lawsuit to “protect their young son’s right to privacy in their home.”

Their attorney revealed on Friday (October 9) that a settlement was reached.

“Over the summer, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex took action against intrusive and illegal paparazzi photos taken of their family at a private residence,” the lawyer told NBC News. “Today, the agency responsible for those photos—X17—apologized and agreed to a permanent injunction and reimbursement of a portion of legal fees. This is a successful outcome. All families have a right, protected by law, to feel safe and secure at home.”

The photo agency, X17, released a statement saying, “We apologize to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their son for the distress we have caused. We were wrong to offer these photographs and commit to not doing so again.”

The last time we got a glimpse of Archie was in May 2020 in a video posted for his first birthday.
