Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are threatening legal action against any British news outlets that publish photographs of them snapped without consent by paparazzi, whom they say have been harassing the couple, according to a report.  

The photograph that has them ready for legal action is hardly earthshattering – it’s Meghan walking her dogs!

The image shows Meghan holding baby Archie while walking her dogs, which was shot by a photographer hiding in the bushes, appeared in several U.K. based publications. 

Photographers have been camped outside Harry and Meghan's property on Vancouver Island, using long-range lenses to try to photograph the family, who are just settling into their new home after stepping back from the royal family 

A letter by lawyers representing the couple threatened action against the various new outlets amid safety concerns, NBC News reported.  

Harry and Meghan have been at war with the media since the start of their relationship in 2016, after headlines caused massive backlash. The Duke of Sussex responded in a statement saying that a line had been crossed.  

Last year the couple filed a lawsuit against The Mail on Sunday. Their reasoning was that the publication had abused private information in what Harry called a "ruthless campaign" against his wife, NBC noted. 

The paper contested the claims on grounds that the public has a vested interest in the royal family's "personal relationships."  

In a separate incident, Harry recently lost his dispute with the press after a lengthy battle in which he faced allegations of misleading the public with wildlife photos shared to social media. At issue was a series of images Harry posted to Instagram in honor of Earth Day last year.  

The photographs depicted an elephant, lion, and rhinoceros, but The Mail on Sunday responded to the photos with an article claiming that the images "don't quite tell the full story" and that Harry had "notably avoided explaining the circumstances in which the images were taken." 

The outlet stated the animals had been tranquilized and the elephant had been tethered. However, this was not evident in the photos posted to Instagram.  

The article said the rope around the elephant's leg had allegedly been edited out. Harry retaliated with his own complaint but in a final ruling last month, the Independent Press Standards Organization concluded that "the complaint was not upheld."
