Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle confirmed their relationship, they've had to deal with constant breaches of their privacy. Even while quarantining at their new LA home, the couple is still dealing with unwanted guests.
The Daily Beast reports that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reported at least five drones flying over their home, with the most recent incident happening over the weekend. Los Angeles Police Department records, obtained by the outlet, allege the incidents took place on May 9, 19, 20, 21 and 25. An LAPD spokesperson stated that "a drone was flying over residences" and that it was part of "an ongoing drone issue."
Paparazzi are believed to be behind the drones, who according to marie claire US managed to capture photos of the couple at their pool with 1-year-old son Archie Harrison. Videos of the couple walking their dog were also captured.

"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," the friend said. "Meghan received racist death threats at the time of her wedding, so the terror threat is very real for them."
"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?" the friend added.
It's especially scary considering the couple does not yet have a security team in place, The Sun reports.
