Royal watchers have discussed Prince Harry being chased by paparazzi after he met seriously ill children and young people at a garden party for the charity WellChild in London on June 30 last year. Podcast hosts Fiorito and Bowie discussed on the Royally Obsessed podcast how the incident had been a “triggering event” for Harry amid a wider discussion about security arrangements for the Duke of Sussex.

Ms Fiorito told Royally Obsessed: “What really was just devastating to read and the triggering event for Harry came actually way back in 2021 when we were all talking about the Diana statue unveiling.

“Harry went to that Wellchild event with Ed Sheeran that we saw some images from and apparently when he left his safety was put at risk.

“He didn’t say these exact words in the statement but paparazzi chased him away from the event.”

Ms Bowie claims: “Which I keep thinking is so triggering for him when his mother and the trauma and how he’s talked so much about the PTSD suffered after her death and I think particularly about paparazzi chasing you, I think that that must bring up so many harsh and traumatising memories.

“But particularly when you know Lilibet’s only six months old Archie is two.

“Of course, he wants to have every protection possible.”

Ms Bowie added that the reported incident in London when the paparazzi chased the Duke’s car made her “sick to my stomach,” and demonstrated Harry’s need for security on trips home to the UK. 

She said: “I think it makes me really reflective on all of our conversations here we’re constantly saying, gosh Harry and Megan just bring Lilibet.

“But he can’t, he absolutely can’t if he doesn’t have safety and especially in relation to this event that happened last July, he was there solo luckily, imagine if he was there with the kids.”

The Royally Obsessed host continued: “And so for me, I felt sick to my stomach thinking that Harry experienced something that was so similar to what killed his mother.”

Harry has expressed a reluctance to bring Archie and baby daughter Lilibet to visit from the US over security concerns.

“The UK will always be Prince Harry’s home and a country he wants his wife and children to be safe in,” the legal representative for the Duke said in a statement.

“With the lack of police protection, comes too great a personal risk.”

The legal representative added: “Prince Harry inherited a security risk at birth, for life. He remains sixth in line to the throne, served two tours of combat duty in Afghanistan, and in recent years his family has been subjected to well-documented neo-Nazi and extremist threats.

“While his role within the Institution has changed, his profile as a member of the Royal Family has not.

“Nor has the threat to him and his family.”
