Youngest son of King Charles III and the late Princess Diana, Prince Harry was accustomed to having his safety ensured at all times from his earliest childhood. It’s very simple, he couldn’t move without an army of bodyguards being present at his side to protect him against possible attacks. However, everything has changed for him in recent years. Indeed, shortly after marrying Meghan Markle, Prince William’s little brother and his wife made the highly controversial decision to leave the British royal family, moving away from the UK. From now on, the couple resides with their children in California, on the side of Los Angeles.

No longer being a member of the British royal family, and no longer living in Great Britain in addition, Prince Harry no longer has to fulfill the obligations incumbent on each member of the British royal family, but he does not also enjoys more of the privileges that were attached to his rank of Duke of Sussex. This therefore includes the security device that has accompanied him throughout his life, and for which he has never paid a penny. Now Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have to provide their own security, paying for their own bodyguard. If the youngest son of King Charles III resolved to do so on American soil, he nevertheless tried to obtain police protection on British soil, as revealed by the Telegraph on Sunday October 16, 2022.

Prince Harry tried to pressure a government adviser

In fact, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle believe that their status should allow them to obtain protection from the British state. Initially, the couple offered to fund the armed bodyguards themselves who will look after their security in the UK, with the aim of not placing the cost of this close protection on the British taxpayers. However, the English Home Secretary refused this proposal, stating that the police were not “firearms”. Prince Harry therefore decided to sue the Home Office, explaining that he did not feel “safe” in the United Kingdom.

“Prince Harry inherited a lifelong security risk at birth. He remains sixth in line to the throne, has served two combat missions in Afghanistan and in recent years his family has come under neo-Nazi threats. and well-documented extremists,” said a legal representative for the Duke of Sussex. At the same time, the husband of Meghan Markle would have tried to circumvent the British legal system, by putting pressure on a senior government adviser. Failing a response, he would then have turned to Sir Mark Sedwill, who served as cabinet secretary and national security adviser. The official Committee responsible for the security of the royal family finally rejected Prince Harry’s request on February 28, 2020. It now remains to be seen how Prince William’s brother intends to ensure the protection of his family on British soil in the future.
