The Duchess of Sussex set up "a paparazzi photo here and there" before she met Prince Harry, according to a controversial new biography of the couple. The book also suggests the Duchess had "let info slip" to newspapers when working as an actress on the hit legal drama Suits. The claims come as the Duke and Duchess strive to protect their right to privacy as they start a new life in California. Last week they announced they were taking legal action to prevent the sale of photographs of their son, Archie, taken by a drone flying over their home. In the final extract of the biography, Finding Freedom, the authors allege the Sussexes shared a "main worry" that the Duchess's then home in Toronto would be "besieged by photographers" after news of their relationship broke in the UK in October 2016. The book claims she received a text from a paparazzo in the Canadian city asking her if the news was true. It adds: "While Meghan, before she met Harry, had occasionally set up a paparazzi photo here and there or let info slip out to the press, she did everything in her power to protect the privacy of her relationship with the prince." The Telegraph understands that the new biography is likely to be drawn into the privacy action against The Mail on Sunday over whether the Duchess's friends, aides and public relations team spoke to the authors or acted on her behalf. In the court case against The Mail on Sunday, she has denied that she gave the green light to the "Five Friends" to speak to People magazine.
