The timing of Meghan Markle’s photo of her son Archie Harrison is said to have “opened a lot of concerns.”
Rachel Bowie, host of the Royally Obsessed podcast, spoke with royal author Elizabeth Holmes about the snap, which is believed to have been controversial because its publication coincided with the Cambridges’ plans to release a new portrait of Prince Louis on his birthday.
“I think we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the timing of the paparazzi photos we saw of Meghan and Archie.
“I think that was definitely surprising to see.
“Fortunately for the Sussexes we haven’t had a lot of that.
“I think the last ones were in Canada where we really got a glimpse.”
“But there was a lot of coverage about the timing of that.
“Was that something where they were snapped and held? It raises a lot of issues.”
Ms Holmes added:
“We haven’t see pap pictures of Meghan and Harry, and I’ve been so relieved about that.
“It’s been such an eventful spring and I was worried the cameras would really go for them.”
“They’ve maintained the privacy that I think they deserve and want.
“It always puts a pit in my stomach when I see paparazzi photos, especially with Archie in them.
“The timing of that felt unfortunate to me to, that the paparazzi would do something like that.”
“Meghan looked great, they both looked so cute.
“But I want them to have the space that they need, especially at this stage of her pregnancy.”
