Back in the United Kingdom to attend the funeral of Prince Philip, Prince Harry has put the means to ensure a security worthy of the name.
A return under high security. On April 17, Prince Harry made a first public appearance with his family since his move to Los Angeles, for the funeral of Prince Philip, who died on April 9 at the age of 99. Back alone in his native country, Meghan Markle could not fly because of her pregnancy, it turns out that the Duke of Sussex has put the means to ensure one thing paramount: his safety. And for this, he did not skimp on the means.
It is with his own security team that he made the trip from Los Angeles on a British Airways flight to Heathrow Airport, before meeting with agents of the Metropolitan Police Service, the territorial police force responsible for Greater London, who took over to ensure his protection throughout his stay. If he paid his own security guards from Los Angeles, it is however the taxpayer who should pay for his protection on British territory, says our source, given that he did not use a private company, and is here in the context of official duties related to the royal family.
Harry and Meghan deprived of royal protection in Los Angeles
Enough to relieve Prince Harry, who in his interview with Oprah Winfrey, had lamented that the royal security that was allocated to him as Duke of Sussex, was recalled to London in early 2020, when he and his wife Meghan Markle decided not to return to the UK. When they moved to Los Angeles, it was the producer Tyler Perry, who in addition to lending them his house had paid for their security costs, after which, when they moved to their mansion in Montecito, the couple had to pay for protection themselves, the official related to their functions had been permanently removed. However, this would have prevented a few setbacks for the couple, who were victims of no less than nine times in nine months of attempts to break into their home, resulting in the intervention of the police force.
