But Meghan is following a royal tradition by having her baby in private. They might not like it but it was the way it was done until Diana arrived and then Kate followed in her footsteps. A 40 years old tradition does not outweigh centuries of tradition. So, they can GTFO with that mess.
Second, Arthur Edward is a creep who followed Diana everywhere she went to the point where she went. In addition, a few months ago he threatened The Sussexes saying if they (the press) didn't get an access then the stories about Meghan will get even more toxic. So, he is not some genuinely sad photographer.
Also, The British Press have been toxic to Meghan since the beginning. I don't think it will change in the future. So, I don't blame Meghan and Harry for wanting to protect their child from it all.
