How Londoners view Harry and Meghan's paparazzi chase

STORY: The "near catastrophic" car chase where press photographers followed Britain's Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and her mother through the streets of New York split opinions of those outside Buckingham Palace on Thursday (May 18).

The incident involved "a ring of highly aggressive paparazzi" in half a dozen cars with blacked out windows, driving dangerously and putting the lives of the couple and Doria Ragland in danger, Harry's spokesperson said on Wednesday (May 17).

Pictures on social media show Harry, Meghan and her mother sitting in the back of a New York taxi which their spokesperson said showed "a small glimpse at the defence and decoys required to end the harassment".

Media reported the couple had switched to the taxi to try and shake off the photographers, after the car they left the Ziegfeld Ballroom in midtown Manhattan in was pursued.
