The Prince of Britain Harry has moved to challenge a government directive barring him from receiving police protection when on Britain soil even when he is paying for the services.
Back in 2020, Prince Harry who is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth, together with his wife Meghan Markel dropped their royal titles and duties to embark on new careers in Los Angeles. Following this ordeal the couple has been using the services of a private security team.
The legal team of Prince Harry, says that the private security team do not give him the level of protection he deserves when he visits Britain.
“In the absence of such protection, Prince Harry and his family are unable to return to his home,” said Prince Harry’s legal team making reference to an incidence which happened on July 2021 when Harry and his family were attending a charity event.
“The UK will always be Prince Harry’s home and a country he wants his wife and children to be safe in. With the lack of police protection comes too great a personal risk. Prince Harry hopes that his petition after close to two years of pleas for security in the UK will resolve this situation,” added the legal team.
