Prince Harry and Meghan say New York City

Prince Harry, Meghan, and Meghan's mother were involved in a "near catastrophic car chase" with paparazzi.

The incident occurred after the couple attended an awards ceremony in New York.

The couple's spokesperson stated that the pursuit lasted for over two hours and resulted in multiple near collisions.

Entertainment picture agency Backgrid is investigating the conduct of freelance photographers involved in the chase.

Harry and Meghan sought shelter at a Manhattan police station and later attempted to use a taxi to escape the paparazzi.

Prince Harry has been involved in legal battles regarding his security arrangements in both the US and the UK.

The incident raises concerns about the ability of paparazzi to operate in such a manner, recalling the tragic death of Princess Diana in 1997.
