The Mayor of New York, Eric Adamsalso spoke about the incident last Tuesday night, he was giving a speech about public safety and the constant robberies that were taking place in the city, when a reporter interrupted his speech to ask him if he was aware of the persecution in which Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were involved the day before.
“We all know that the press and the paparazzi want to capture the best picture, they want to get the full and correct story, but public safety must always be ready to react. Two of our officers may have been injured.” stated the mayor, referring to the harassment and persecution.
“New York is not a small town, speed limits should not be exceeded anywhere, especially in a densely populated city like this. And I think all of us… remember how Prince Harry’s mother died and it would be totally unfortunate if innocent bystanders lost their lives in a chase like this, and also if something happened to them, so I think we have to be extremely responsible. . I found it very reckless and irresponsible.” This was the answer that the mayor gave to the reporter and to everyone in general.
