Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down from their official duties as British royalty in 2020. The Sussex couple and their two children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet Diana, 1, have been living in California for two years. This maneuver, called the Megxit, has caused a lot of ink to flow. Due to his departure from the British royal family, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, 37, has changed his status. This led, among other things, to the decision of the Ravec to reduce the degree of personal protection for Harry and his family during their visits to British soil. The 96-year-old grandson of Elizabeth II of England then offered to pay out of pocket for his protection.

Shaeed Fatima has revealed he There were “significant tensions” between Prince Harry and Sir Edward Young. Prince Harry believes that if he knew members of the royal household were involved, he might have objected.
