Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wanted more freedom and privacy when they stepped down as senior royals earlier this year. But unfortunately, thanks to a number of drones that keep illegally flying over their home in Los Angeles, that isn’t the case…

According to reports, several drones have been flying over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s current Hollywood Hills home on five separate occasions this month.

The latest incident of drones flying over their temporary home (which actually belongs to their friend, filmmaker Tyler Perry) was reportedly on Memorial Day.

The former Duke and Duchess of Sussex suspect that the drones belong to photographers, who are hoping to capture exclusive pictures of them and baby Archie. However, they were forced to call the LAPD’s non-emergency number and report them, on the off chance it could have been something more serious such as a “terror threat”…

“They see these drones coming in at them, and they guess that they are being operated by photographers, but they can’t just assume that” a source close to the former royals reportedly told The Daily Beast.

“Meghan received racist death threats at the time of her wedding, so the terror threat is very real for them.

“But, aside from that, imagine if you were in their shoes facing that, how that would feel? To have drones buzzing around 20 feet above your head when you are trying to play with your son?

“It’s like people forget they are real people. But this is a real family. They are not asking for any special treatment; they are just asking for the safety and security we all expect in our own homes to be respected.”

A spokesperson for the LAPD told The Daily Beast that there had been reports of “an ongoing drone issue” in the area. However, it’s still not known who is responsible for them, and no arrests have been made.

Harry and Meghan have yet to hire a full security team since moving to Los Angeles. But the way things are currently going, we predict that it will now be top of their to-do list…
