“I’m going to have to say no comment,” Parshotam said of whether Markle tips off photographers. “You boys interpret that as you wish, but I can’t say it’s a categorical no and I can’t say it’s a categorical yes.”

The photographer took one of the first pictures of and Prince Harry when they began dating which got him the front page of a national newspaper and “to break such a massive story for me was iconic.”

“I photographed Harry across the , I photographed him with Chelsy Davy, three girlfriends ago,” Parshotam recalled. “I got the first pictures of him and Cressida Bonas as well, the girlfriend before Meghan, but the first picture of Meghan and Harry for me was an iconic picture. I knew that was the woman he was going to marry.”

Once Meghan and Harry were officially an item, Parshotam flew to Toronto. “The best set I took of Meghan was her going to a forest, and at the forest, she , she posed up for us,” he recalled. 

Parshotam continued, “She smiled at us, me and the other guys I was working with and we got such a beautiful set of pictures. She talked to us, and at one point, she was telling me, ‘Oh where are you from?’ I said London. She said you need to stop wearing that trench coat because we’re in Toronto, you need to wear a puffer jacket.”

“Honestly, it’s surreal — it was very different than what I expected. I photographed her there and again, you need to be in these places for the chance to get the two shot. After doing all that work, I photographed Meghan in India, she went for some charity work. I flew Mumbai, and I managed to get her literally arriving at the airport,” he added.

“When Meghan talked about the press and Harry talks about the press, in my personal experience, it wasn’t like that. Every time I have photographed Meghan, she has laughed, she has said hello, she has smiled. That day in Toronto, she talked about me wearing a better jacket — is that someone who doesn’t like the press? The funny thing about that is Meghan has also posed with paparazzi. I have seen images of her standing next to paparazzi,” he explained.

Before she was dating Harry, “Meghan also used to organize set-ups. She would ask an agency, ‘I am turning up to a restaurant, event, can you photograph me coming in?’” according to Parshotam.

This comes after Markle told Oprah Winfrey during their tell-all interview that the negative press “just because I was breathing” was one of the reasons they stepped back from royal life.
