A few days after it was revealed that Prince Harry is threatening the U.K. government, as he wants his security back and doesn't feel safe overseas, Piers Morgan had some thoughts about the ordeal.
"Harry seems to have delighted in making his 95-year-old grandmother’s life more difficult during the most difficult times of her life," he wrote in a piece for The Sun. "Since they quit Britain, Harry and Meghan have proven themselves to be only interested in one thing: making as much money as fast as possible by ruthlessly exploiting their royal status."
"This latest legal row perfectly exemplifies the Sussexes’ desire to have their royal cake and eat it — they don’t want to do any actual work for the Royal Family after falling out with most of them following their constant public attacks," he continued.
The 37-year-old, who left the royal family in 2020, wants to pay for police protection when he returns to the U.K., but the Home Office denied the request. Now, he has applied for judicial review against the decision.
"The U.K. 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," Harry's legal rep said in a statement. "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex personally fund a private security team for their family, yet that security cannot replicate the necessary police protection needed whilst in the U.K. In the absence of such protection, Prince Harry and his family are unable to return to his home."
It looks like Queen Elizabeth will not be stepping in this time around. “This is not a matter for Her Majesty. She certainly won’t cave in to his demands," an insider said. “It is a matter for Her Majesty’s government. Who gets protection is not a gift the Queen can decide to give or take away.”
Another source added, "His demands for security in the U.K. have not been openly or widely discussed within the family because it was thought sorted two years ago."
