Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Spring into Parenting Mode After Paparazzi Snap Intrusive Baby Archie Pics

When it comes to baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor’s privacy, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry definitely do not mess around. In fact, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are taking legal action in regards to photos taken of their son while the family was in their Los Angeles home.

In a new lawsuit filed on Thursday, the couple is alleging “serial intrusions” into 14-month-old Archie's privacy by unnamed paparazzi with the intention to sell the photographs to various tabloids.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are filing this lawsuit to protect their young son's right to privacy in their home without intrusion by photographers, and to uncover and stop those who seek to profit from these illegal actions,” the duo’s attorney wrote in the statement.

It’s important to note that the photographer and media outlet have not yet been identified (hence the “unnamed defendants”), which allows Harry and Meghan to pursue anyone selling the images.

If there’s one thing we learned from all of this, it’s don’t mess with baby Archie.
