Actually, it would be one per person. One for Meghan and one for Archie.

And now according to The Guardian, media has been warned not to use the pictures taken during the dog walk:

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...-meghan-archie

Good luck with that one.

---"The Sun’s front page on Tuesday featured a paparazzi picture of Meghan with her son walking her dogs on a woodland trail on Vancouver Island, accompanied by the headline: “The joy of Sussex.”

The Sussexes issued a warning to the media on Tuesday not to use the picture."---

I think the Sussexes are going to find out that they don't carry as much "clout" as they used to. If they're in a public place and the photographers aren't breaking any laws or infringing on privacy, there's not much they can do about it.

Along with extremely good accountants, they're going to need to pay for and retain extremely good lawyers.

Chris Ship said on Twitter that the U.K. press had an agreement where they wouldn’t buy photos of the Royals in their down time so that’s why we never saw paparazzi photos. Maybe they moved to Canada so they could get the paparazzi photos and help them continue with their brand and getting free publicity?

You mean the [roundly snubbed] 'Bank of the Prince of Wales' will be expected to cough up for them...?

And then his assertion was thoroughly debunked by folks posting examples of the UK papers running pap photos of various royals including Harry and Meg and the Cambridges in their down time.

Another step on the road to the 'Vexatious Litigant' notoriety so beloved of Hollywood...

The speed with which they seem to turn into caricatures of themselves is amazing..

What pray tell is hollywood about this? Again, its tiring but the double standards are becoming absurd, many royals send out similar warnings multiple times a year about photos taken in downtime.

A warning is not litigation although they may file an IPSO complaint. Both Harry and William file multiple ones a year for photos taken.

But the bolded words are key--they are not "royals" anymore.

Well, she and Harry are threatening legal action, so...

There are lots of public figures have what I call ad hoc photographs taken, walking along the street, leaving a restaurant.

Does every person that has their photograph taken asked their permission before it is taken. The Wessex's were at dinner a couple of weeks ago and their photographs were over the paper. Or are Harry and Meghan saying they are now private citizens.
The Middleton family are private citizens and they appear regularly in the newspapers.
What I am asking is does every photograph that gets published require the permission of the subject before it is published.

No they aren't. They apparently warned the media not to use the pictures taken on the dog walk. She was in a public place, and looked very happy to be papped from my point of view.

Anyone notice how Henry landed with barely any luggage? Either he's bought a whole new wardrobe whilst in Canada or he's left a lot of stuff at home.

Oops - the headline on the article I saw said they were threatening legal action, but I clicked on it now and the article states only about the warning.

If she’s so happy, and indeed she looked like she was smiling for the cameras, why the warning ?

Or he already moved the bulk of his possessions to Canada before the "website launch" 13 days ago.

Or in his new life he is not going to need all those suits and military clothes. Its not like he can't buy new clothes or have stuff shipped over. I wonder when he plans on returning to the UK. Surely he will attend the Trooping of the Colour? But who knows with these two...such a bloody disappointment!

Just my opinion but I very, very much doubt that he will attend Trooping the Colour or any other ceremony or family event in the UK for the foreseeable future.

The headlines won't be great either way but I think they'd be worse if he came on his own. At least for a time I would expect to see him only at funerals and possibly his father's coronation if that were to come soon (and for the record, I really hope we won't see any funerals or coronations soon) but even the coronation I'm not 100% convinced about.
The Times reported on Sunday that he will be back in Feb for engagements actually. He is still technically a working royal until the Spring.

Until the spring, yes. And probably only because there were already engagements on the books that couldn't be cancelled or would look terribly bad to cancel or replace him, though I admit that I don't know what those engagements are. After the official cutoff point I don't look for her to ever be back in any capacity that even remotely involves the RF and for the time being, I don't believe he will, either.
