Now that Prince Harry is threatening legal action against the U.K. government, it's unclear if he will talk about the ordeal going forward — especially in his upcoming memoir, which will be released this year.
"I think he will mention [the security row] if he’s doing an interview. I think whatever he is doing he will fit it in to whatever he is publicly doing," expert Angela Levin claimed. "It’s all been hush hush. It might be too late [to get it into the memoir], but it will certainly come out somewhere in public, he won’t keep that quiet. It’s another reason for him to show he wasn’t respected."
In mid-January, the 37-year-old announced that he wants to return home, but he cannot do so until he gets security for his wife and kids.
"Prince Harry inherited a security risk at birth, for life," a statement began. "He remains sixth in line to the throne, served two tours of combat duty in Afghanistan, and in recent years his family has been subjected to well-documented neo-Nazi and extremist threats. While his role within the Institution has changed, his profile as a member of the Royal Family has not. Nor has the threat to him and his family."
The statement continued, "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. The Duke first offered to pay personally for U.K. police protection for himself and his family in January of 2020 at Sandringham. That offer was dismissed. He remains willing to cover the cost of security, as not to impose on the British taxpayer. As is widely known, others who have left public office and have an inherent threat risk receive police protection at no cost to them."
