MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry have been warned their two young children are “valuable prey” in the US despite the couple’s efforts to keep Archie Harrison and Lilibet Diana out of the limelight after Megxit.

 

 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made the sensational decision to leave the Firm and move to the US to step away from the public spotlight back in 2020. And Prince Harry has made it clear his priority is to protect the privacy of his wife Meghan Markle and two children Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1.

 

 

But the couple have been warned their children will be “unprotected from the glare of lenses, both professional and amateur” as soon as they step out of their Californian mansion. Australian royal writer Daniela Elser warned the couple had left themselves open to being snapped by paparazzi than if they were in the UK.

 

 

Writing for NZ Herald, Ms Elser said: “Harry and Meghan might not be enjoying Beyonce-levels of popularity (the most recent polling shows that less than half of Americans view them favourably) but there is no end to the fascination with the nation’s very own branch of the Royal Family.

 

“The whole family is, in short, valuable prey for anyone who might come across the family out and about. “What will it mean for Archie and his little sister Lilibet to grow up in a country where there is a ready market for iPhone snaps of them? “The Sussex family might live on a seven-acre estate but the minute they set foot outside those gates, they are unprotected from the glare of lenses, both professional and amateur.”

 

 

Ms Elser also pointed to Kate and Prince William’s children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis who she said “by and large left totally alone to get on with the business of growing up” in the UK. She said “the tabloid culture in the US is a far cry from that in the UK” and the “politeness” of the British culture means the Cambridge family are left alone.

 

 

The author added: “For the last five years these kids have been raised in the very centre of London (and less than 1km away from the head offices of the Daily Mail) and yet they are by and large left totally alone to get on with the business of growing up.
