Prince Harry and Meghan Markle switching from a chauffeured, protected SUV to a New York City taxicab during an alleged chase involving paparazzi photographers Tuesday night makes “zero sense,” a security expert told Fox News Digital Wednesday.
“It makes zero sense,” AllSTAR Security President Mark Selden told Fox News Digital in a phone interview. “Completely zero sense. “You’re in a protected environment. You’re with your security.”
The Sussexes and Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland were pursued in their car by photographers after a charity event in New York City Tuesday evening, briefly taking refuge at a police station before being whisked away in a yellow taxicab.
“They were at a police precinct, which is the safest environment they could be in,” Selden added. “And that’s where they should have stayed in a safe environment, never should have left.”

“This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD (New York Police Department) officers,” the spokesperson said.
The couple’s car stopped at a police precinct around 18 blocks from where they attended the Women of Vision Awards at the Ziegfe
