A source revealed the reason Prince Harry And Duchess Meghan nearly got into a car chase.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex sparked a car chase controversy because they were too cheap to pay for a hotel, according to insiders. The former royal couple is believed to request a discounted stay at the Carlyle, which is the late Princess Diana’s favorite hotel, on their visit to New York City this week. According to law enforcement sources, the hotel owners refused to give them a substantial discount. As a result, the former royal pair ended up staying at a friend’s house on the Upper East Side. Unfortunately, they were involved in a car pursuit since they did not want to bring the cameras back to their friend’s house and divulge where they were staying. The sources added that the alleged ‘hazardous’ paparazzi chase might have been averted if they had just paid up and got a hotel in the first place. They’d be driven back to the Carlyle, photographed entering, and that would have been the end of it. It was puzzling that they didn’t book a room despite having a reputed $100 million deal with Netflix and multiple other business initiatives. In the past, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have stayed at the Carlyle, where rooms start at roughly $1,240 and suites can cost up to $6,000 per night. They were previously pictured dining at the hotel’s legendary Bemelmans Bar on a visit to New York in 2021.
