As he came to the UK to attend his father King Charles III’s coronation, Prince Harry has been one of the persons the media has been closely monitoring during the month of May. After the wedding, the prince left for the United States, but it now appears that his trip back to the United Kingdom may be more difficult than before because he won’t have local police protection.
After the coronation, Harry promptly returned to the United States, where he and his bride, Meghan Markle, had a “catastrophic” experience. After leaving the Miss Foundation Awards, where Meghan was recognized, they were embroiled in a chase through the streets of Manhattan. The city’s paparazzi were pursuing the famous couple on motorcycles and in cars in an effort to capture a picture for their magazine covers.
Since there were no injuries or accidents throughout the more than two hours of the chase, the New York City police downplayed the issue and made it obvious that this distressing incident for Prince Harry and Meghan was of minor significance. Prince Harry would not be permitted to pay for private police security during his stay in British territory, a court in the United Kingdom confirmed shortly after. The Duke’s eventual return to the UK is hindered by insufficient security concerns since with this, he will be totally open to any persecution like the one he faced in New York.
The Duke was not permitted to hire private security services to increase his security after learning the news on May 23 from the High Court of London, as Prince Harry had renounced his royal rights in 2020 and his security was no longer a top priority for the British government’s police force.
The UK’s security minister removed this privilege from the duke and his wife because, as a wealthy individual who had renounced the throne, he should have his own security measures.
Due to the difficult circumstances that occurred, the son of King Charles III and his wife have a group of bodyguards, but the duke claims that they lack the expertise and knowledge for intelligence services that UK security does.
