Prince Harry was harshly criticized for his "selfish" behavior when expecting taxpayer-funded security when he and his family were in Britain.

"We know Harry and entitlement, don't we? He hasn't quite realized that he's not on the same level as he was two to three years ago," royal author Angela Levin told an outlet.

"What he wants is top policemen to look after him 24/7 and what the other side wants is that he is only protected when he does something to do with the royal family, some particular event, [and] then he is. But if he's going around seeing friends and making rude noises about the royal family, he isn't protected," she added.

Levin continued: "He can get his own protection and pay for that, which he's offered to do, but he doesn't want anybody who's not absolutely at the top. Now the thing is, if they let Harry do it, as he's not a member of the royal family in the same way, then all sorts of people are going to come after it. Heads of companies, people who come from abroad on a visit, and actually there won't be anybody left on the street."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex both lost their British taxpayer-funded security detail when they abandoned their royal duties and left Britain in 2020. This type of royal protection is provided by Scotland Yard and is only granted to senior royals who officially work to represent the monarch in the United Kingdom and abroad. This clause also extends to Harry and Meghan's children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet Diana.

In the spring of 2023, Prince Harry lost a legal bid to have London's Metropolitan Police look after him and his family while in Britain.

The fifth in line to the throne once offered to fund protection for his family after "Megxit," but he was turned down by the Metropolitan Police on the above-mentioned grounds. He fought to have this right in one of his many legal challenges in the nation's High Court but lost his battle in May when a judge ruled that he had no right to receive protection.

Despite his loss, many analysts predict that the royal rebel will continue to argue that it is his right to receive police protection as opposed to funding his own private security.

As non-working members of the Crown, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle lost their taxpayer-funded security after 'Megxit' in 2020.

"He can get good protection officers, but he's not going to get the best. He knows that he's not getting the best because they know what's coming on. They know [they] all the have better intelligence than him, but I don't think he can say he deserves the better intelligence anymore. He's got to move on," the expert observed.

Levin concluded: "And I don't think anybody wants, not just for him but also for Meghan and the two children, they want separate protection officers, and that's going to cost us an enormous amount of money, and I don't think they particularly want to do that."
