Late last year, a 37-year-old man tried to break into the home of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. While the police had let him go with a warning, he showed up again a few days later…
In leaving their duties as senior members of the royal family, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had to give up many things… Starting with their royal security privilege. If the couple had assured through their spokesperson that “privately funded security arrangements have been put in place”, it will not have been enough to protect their home. Indeed, the police assured that a man tried to break into their home twice during the vacations. Police sources assured TMZ that a 37-year-old man named Nickolas Brooks was caught breaking into their home in Montecito, California, on Christmas Eve. However, Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s officers let him go with a warning.
That won’t have been enough considering Nickolas Brooks showed up at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s property again on December 26, 2020! While the young man was arrested, the American site’s sources revealed that the intruder came all the way from Ohio to break into their home. However, Nickolas Brooks did not reveal what exactly he wanted to do and was then charged with misdemeanor trespassing. While these incidents may not seem like a big deal, they highlight a much bigger point that Prince Harry made during his television interview with Oprah Winfrey: his concern for his family’s safety. Facing the host, Prince William‘s brother indeed explained that Buckingham Palace had cut him off.
One of the most threatened crowned heads
Former military engaged in the war in Afghanistan, the grandson of Elizabeth II remains one of the most “at risk” members of the royal family. In the columns of the Mirror, a Taliban fighter, Qari Nasrullah confided that Prince Harry had already been targeted by terrorists “several times” before adding about his intervention in Afghanistan: “There were many plans to capture him – maybe it was his luck that he managed to escape.” Former Parachute Regiment soldier and security expert Paul Biddiss added: “Harry will need to be protected, as he is one of the most endangered crowned heads. He clearly needs security protection.”
