Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Pay for Their Own Security in the US

Since stepping back from their royal duties, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had relocated from their home in the UK to Canada, but they are now on the move again. According to a royal insider, the couple with their son has left Canada for good to set up a permanent home in Los Angeles, California.

On Sunday, US President Trump tweeted that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have to pay for their own security arrangements once they have moved to the United States. “I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom,” he tweeted. “It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the US however, the US will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!” According to reports, a spokesperson for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stated that they “have no plans to ask the US government for security resources. Privately funded security arrangements have been made.”

The family is also believed to be in isolation due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19 in the Hollywood area. Over the past few weeks, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have taken to their social media to share motivating messages for those affected by the pandemic and have thanked the healthcare workers fighting Covid-19. “Around the world, the response from people in every walk of life, to protect and look out for their communities has been inspiring,” they wrote on Instagram. “None more so than the brave and dedicated healthcare workers on the frontline, risking their own well-being to care for the sick and fight COVID-19. Wherever you are in the world, we are all incredibly grateful.”

Starting April 1, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will no longer fulfill the official duties as royals and also let go of their His/Her Royal Highness titles.
