Described as ‘near catastrophic’ and involved paparazzi

FannyCornforth Wed 17-May-23 15:20:33

In New York

Car chase, not car crash.

Germanshepherdsmum Wed 17-May-23 15:32:37

So nothing actually happened?

aggie Wed 17-May-23 15:33:33

More publicity for this unassuming, shy , pair

Anniebach Wed 17-May-23 15:35:23

2 hour chase through New York, they were in a taxi ! ! ! !

And an attempted break in at their house last night. Apparently their security made a citizen arrest.

Omg. Are they OK? x

Quite right
I’ve asked for it to be edited.

FannyCornforth Wed 17-May-23 15:41:15

Her mum was in the car too

No crash, ‘several near collisions’

FannyCornforth Wed 17-May-23 15:44:54

Thanks HQ, that was quick! thanks

Seems only the non-reputable tabloids are reporting the dramatic, likely wildly overstated events. Willing to bet that it was a typical case of paps being overly aggressive and needing redirection by NYPD. I just came here to read the conspiracy-laden comments from those who will no doubt accuse them of orchestrating the entire incident. grin

So, constantly decry the media, but get your spokesperson to alert Reuters? It’s up there with ‘ Chip Pan Nearly Goes on Fire in Clydebank’!

FannyCornforth Wed 17-May-23 15:51:06

It was breaking news on LBC (where I first heard it) and on the Beeb
I should imagine it’s on all news platforms, not just ‘non reputable tabloids’ Lyle

Maybe it's time to keep a lower profile. Thank goodness the children weren't involved.

Spot on aggie.

Seems the USA is not too safe for them either.

MerylStreep Wed 17-May-23 16:06:06

The police were a bit slow in stopping a 2 hr car chase in New York

BlueBelle Wed 17-May-23 16:10:02

Some mean comments from some grand netters I can see you almost rubbing your hands in glee
Shakes head can’t find an emoji for that 😬😵‍💫

MerylStreep Wed 17-May-23 16:12:13

I’ve just read where it took place Manhattan area.
I’m sure lots of you here have been in a taxi in that area, you hardly move.

Anniebach Wed 17-May-23 16:12:34

It’s being compared with the car chase in Paris

FannyCornforth Wed 17-May-23 16:14:18

A UK pap being interviewed on LBC, apparently the paps in the US are even less principled

It would be, it’s Harry’s greatest fear
