A “near-disastrous car chase,” all on the prince’s mind?
— The last thing mom saw on this earth was a flashbulbPrince Harry in spare part
When it was first revealed that you, the Duchess of Sussex and her mother were involved in a “near-disastrous” two-hour paparazzi chase in New York on Tuesday night, it was too shockingly reminiscent of your mother’s tragic death. But what if it was all in your restless head?
we feel you Your mother died horribly – hunted to her death by the vultures who always wanted more; Princess Diana’s life ebbs in an explosion of paparazzi shutter clicks echoing through the Paris tunnel. You blame those ghouls for stealing your mother 26 years ago – who can blame you?
Today’s paparazzi have continued their torment by making your own life hell, recording your calls, hiding in the bushes, a relentless campaign that only increased when you dared to marry Meghan Markle, who not only was an American actress, but also one of them was multiracial.
“My mother was hunted down because she was in a relationship with someone who wasn’t white,” Prince Harry warned. “Do you want to talk about history repeating itself? They won’t stop until she’s dead. ”
So you and your loved one gave up your royal duties and moved to the more civilized exile, at least as far as paparazzi goes, in America. Then came Tuesday night’s event in New York City – her first appearance with Meghan since the king’s coronation – when she accepted an award from the Ms. Foundation.
After exiting the Ziegfeld Theater at 10 p.m., your rep said you were the victim of a “near-catastrophic chase by a group of extremely aggressive paparazzi” that lasted over two hours and “resulted in multiple near misses with other drivers.” “The street, pedestrians, and two NYPD officers.”
Even New York Mayor Eric Adams chimed in, citing the memory of Diana’s death and concluding, “It was a little bit reckless and irresponsible.”
But your spokesman’s harrowing account soon unraveled.
A two-hour car chase in the middle of Manhattan? That was the first part of the story that aroused great skepticism. You’re lucky if you can drive a block in this always-crowded metropolis.
Then came the NYPD statement, making things far less dramatic: “There were numerous photographers who made their transportation a challenge. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at their destination and there have been no reported clashes, summonses, injuries or arrests in connection.”
Challenging is hardly “near catastrophic”.
Apparently you didn’t want to be followed to the private home you were staying at, so you led the boys on some kind of wild chase before taking refuge in the 19th Precinct to rally with a new plan. What should get into a yellow cab?
The Washington Post quoted taxi driver Sukhcharn Singh said he saw two photographers following them before their security guard told him to return to the police station for Plan C about 10 minutes later. “I never felt like I was in any danger. It wasn’t like a chase scene in a movie. They were silent and seemed scared, but it’s New York — it’s safe,” he said.

He later told SkyNews that you were nervous because you had been followed “all day” at the time, but to describe his part of the ride as “near-disastrous” would be “exaggerated”.
However, the taxi driver admitted that you may have experienced this before, “but not with me.”
Not surprisingly, the photo agency involved denied any wrongdoing and suspected it was your security guards in the SUVs driving erratically.
Get ready for the British onslaught of your hyena haters. Her critics took it as proof that you and the Duchess made the whole story up – but the cab driver didn’t say that. It’s not what the police or the mayor said either. Apparently the paparazzi were swarming; it must have been annoying and annoying. But it wasn’t the dramatic flight of your life that it was portrayed to be either.
Unfortunately, that was your trauma, poor boy, not the reality.
