Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are among the most photographed couples, but they actually don't like cameras.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out at the WellChild awards. They spent the night talking to the recipients, including 4-year-old Mckenzie Brackley. Brackley received the Inspirational Child award following his battle with acute flaccid paralysis. When he met Prince Harry and Markle, he told them that he didn't like the cameras and the couple agreed.

"They were so lovely. They knew [Mckenzie] was scared of the cameras and they said they didn’t like the cameras either so they turned around," Brackley's mom said (via Express).

Markle, a former actress, is used to cameras. Prince Harry is also one of the most photographed royals. However, the two are keen on avoiding being photographed if possible.

It has been reported that the couple wanted to be away from the press. During the Sentebale Polo Cup in Windsor, they were photographed kissing but opted to shy away from the cameras after the event.

"It was quite clear that they didn’t want the press anywhere near them," a photographer said. "They were photographed on the red carpet and at the end of the match, but they wanted to be left alone the rest of the time even though this was a major charity event for Harry with a big international press presence."

Also, Prince Harry reportedly wanted to protect his wife from the media's obsession with their lives. "[Harry] worries there is too much hysteria around Meghan and he wants to row back a bit," a source told royal biographer Katie Nicholl.

Prince Harry has always been indifferent to the press. He blamed the paparazzi for the automobile accident that killed his mom, Princess Diana.

"I think one of the hardest things to come to terms with is the fact that the people that chased her into the tunnel were the same people that were taking photographs of her while she was still dying on the back seat of the car," Prince Harry told BBC in 2017. "She had quite a severe head injury but she was very much still alive on the back seat. And those people that caused the accident, instead of helping, they were taking photographs on the back seat, and then those photographs made their way back to news desks."
