History could have repeated itself. This Tuesday 16 May, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were involved in a car chase on the streets of New York. According to a spokesperson, the couple was trying to escape several cars of paparazzi after the awards ceremony at the Ziegfeld Ballroom, which they attended with Doria Ragland. It was a scenario reminiscent of Lady Diana’s tragic death in a car accident in August 1997, after being stalked by photographers in the streets of Paris.
In the aftermath of what could have been a tragedy, Charles III’s reaction was swift. According to the Twitter account of royal expert Evans E.: “The King reached out to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after news of the New York incident surfaced.” And says the 75-year-old monarch “was reportedly informed” of the incident “on his return from the Prince’s Trust Awards reception at Buckingham Palace”.

In a statement, Prince Harry‘s spokesperson said: “The fierce pursuit, which lasted more than two hours, resulted in numerous collisions with other drivers, pedestrians and two NYPD officers. He added: “While being a public figure brings with it a level of public interest, it should never be at the expense of anyone’s safety.
