Transcript for Harry, Meghan take on press and paparazzi as they start new life
Now we turn to Harry and Meghan who are taking on the press as they start their new life threatening legal action against Paparazzi. Adrienne Bankert has more from Vancouver island. Good morning, Adrienne. Reporter: Good morning. Yes, this has been an emotional move for the prince. Harry talked about the sadness with which he made this decision and also talked about the fact that he wanted to continue serving the queen just without public funds. That won't happen. But what prince Harry and his wife insist on is that photographers will not have free license to harass them. This morning, Harry and Meghan are laying down their ground rules for a peaceful life in Canada sending a strong message to the press. Lawyers for the couple penning a letter to British news outlets threatening legal action if they purchase or publish any photographs taken under circumstances described as harassment. Harry and Meghan say Paparazzi have set up camp outside their home, have attempted to use long range lenses to photograph inside and have hid in the bushes to get pictures of Meghan walking with Archie. Meghan was photographed on public property. They feel there was a line that was crossed. They also experienced being followed in their cars earlier that day as well. Reporter: British Columbia's privacy act gives people the right to bring a civil court lawsuit without having to prove monetary loss. Prince Harry arrived Tuesday in Vancouver island reunited with his wife and son just 24 hours after speaking out about how starting this spring the couple will no longer be senior members of the royal family. In a deal agreed upon with the queen. We are taking a leap of faith so thank you for giving me the courage to take this next step. Reporter: While the couple will no longer receive public funds or conduct royal business, questions remain as to who will cover their security costs including whether Canada will pick up the tab. I have not spoken to her majesty directly. We had discussions and continue to be ongoing and I have no updates at this moment. Reporter: Most Canadians agree that the couple's security shouldn't even be a concern. He's really just a British private citizen who happens to be in Canada and the same thing for his wife who is an American citizen who happens to be in Canada. Reporter: And for the first time we're seeing photographs of Meghan at an animal rescue charity. She is still currently a patron of it. Over in the uk the picture was taken sometime earlier this yet to be seen exactly what they will do here once their royal duties are taken away from them. That starts this spring but Canadians we talked to here say it's very Canadian to allow them to have their privacy. Guys. Yeah. Thank you, Adrienne.
