According to Express, Prince Harry could face a very costly bill of £500,000 after the case. Harry’s lawyers argued that the British Home Office didn’t have the authority to refuse Prince Harry the right to pay for his own private security, but it seems that the judge and court did not agree. Meanwhile, the government’s lawyers claimed it would be unlawful to offer Harry the ability to fund his own protection, as this could create less available security and police for those who are not as wealthy and cannot afford to pay for their own services.
There have been several incidences where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have expressed fear for their safety, with the latest being a near-fatal paparazzi car chase in New York City. The pair were reportedly in a two-hour car chase, with aggressive paparazzi chasing the taxi they were in. It remains unclear what Prince Harry’s next move will be in regard to the security of himself and his family.
