Prince Harry reportedly wants to return to the British Crown since "everything else he's done has failed."
"London is his home, and he wants his children to be here," royal expert Angela Levin shared.
"They can’t be unless they get top protection," Levin added when explaining the difficulties that could come with a Sussex return to Britain.
She continued: "I thought to myself, if he starts doing that, it’s because everything else has failed. He wants to come back. He wants to be a member of the royal family again, but my goodness, he is a very changed Harry, and he’s going to do what he wants. The fact that he has no respect for his father, no respect for his birth, I think he is going to be a big danger because he will compete with the royal family themselves."
This insight comes after the Duke of Sussex sent a statement to be read in London's High Court on December 7. "It was with great sadness for both of us that my wife and I felt forced to step back from this role and leave the country in 2020. The U.K. is my home. The U.K. is central to the heritage of my children and a place [where] I want them to feel at home as much as where they live at the moment in the U.S. That cannot happen if it’s not possible to keep them safe when they are on U.K. soil," the fifth in line to the throne wrote.
His claims about his and his family's need for state-funded security protection were met with widespread condemnation by royal analysts in Britain.
"I don’t think he deserves [it]. It’s police with guns. He can get a second-grade one if he wants with no trouble at all. But if he wants that, he takes them off the street for people like you and me. They will have to have four of them, [and] three times a day they change. I think that’s really dangerous. I hope that the decision that’s made is that he can have very good protection," Levin concluded when describing how Harry's being granted police protection could be disruptive to British society.
This follows an earlier ruling by the High Court in May that decided the Duke could not use the Metropolitan Police for protection when he is in the country.
The fiery-haired prince has frequently spoken about the security fears he has for both himself and his family since departing from the royal family for America in 2020. Taxpayer-funded royal protection is traditionally only granted to senior, working members of the monarchy and is never issued to former royals living full-time in another country.
