After the photo agency behind Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s “near catastrophic case chase,” Backgrid USA, spoke out against the royal couple’s telling of events, things are getting even messier. As it turns out, the Sussexes reportedly asked for the footage from the night to reinforce their security, and Backgrid did not take that request well.
“We hereby demand that Backgrid immediately provide us with copies of all photos, videos, and/or films taken last night by the freelance photographers after the couple left their event and over the next several hours,” a letter from Markle and Harry’s legal team sent to the photo agency read, per TMZ.
Backgrid’s response, however, was the opposite of friendly. “In America, as I’m sure you know, property belongs to the owner of it,” the photo agency’s legal team began. “Third parties cannot just demand it be given to them, as perhaps Kings can do.” Did they really need to bring King Charles into this?
“Perhaps you should sit down with your client and advise them that his English rules of royal prerogative to demand that the citizenry hand over their property to the Crown were rejected by this country long ago,” the letter continued. “We stand by our founding fathers.” Ouch!
