"I felt this button on my shoulder and was asked not to take pictures of the Duchess – but I didn't know she was there until then," Jones told the Daily Mail.

I told him:" Have you thought of Have a word with one of these television cameras? "He looked a little uncomfortable." "It is now a clear feeling that [Prince] Harry, Meghan and their team see themselves more as A-list celebrities rather than royal performing their tasks, "Jones continued. "Their desire to control things is in stark contrast to Cambridge's, which seems far more sensible. Kate [Middleton] was in Wimbledon two days earlier and acted quite differently.

"I think the level of protection will be around the clock," said the royal film maker Fox News. "If you look at how William and Kate have been so protective of their children, the British press has kept a fair distance from George, Charlotte, and Louis. I think Harry will be even more protective.

According to Bullen, we can expect Harry, who has had a cautious relationship with the British press, after his mother died in 1997 at the age of 36 to become even more protective of mother and child.
"Harry must take care of Meghan, protect her," Bullen explained. "If she wants things if she needs things, he has to make it happen.
