The Duke and Duchess of Sussex apparently are experiencing privacy breaches and intrusiveness at their new home.

Harry, Meghan and their one-year-old son, Archie, have barely settled into their new LA life when they allegedly experienced an "unimaginable" invasion of their privacy, E News reports.

The couple, who have stepped back from royal duty, reportedly filed several complaints with Los Angeles police after spotting drones flying over their home.

According to Harper’s Bazaar, the royals reported at least five drone-related incidents, between 9 and 25 May, which they believe involved cameras controlled by photographers.

“They see these drones coming in at them, and they guess that they’re being operated by photographers, but they can’t just assume that,” an insider revealed.

“Meghan received racist death threats at the time of her wedding, so the terror threat is very real for them.”

The source pleaded with members of the public to respect the couple’s privacy and safety, ET Online reports.

“It's like people forget they are real people,” the insider said.

“But this is a real family. They’re not asking for any special treatment; they are just asking for the safety and security we all expect in our own homes to be respected.”
