Prince Harry's legal team just shared a major statement.
When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down from their official roles as senior royals back in 2020, they lost many of the things that came with the titles, including U.K.-funded police protection for themselves and their two young children—Archie, 2, and Lilibet, 8 months. And while the duke tried to personally pay for this protection, his request was denied, and he is now seeking a judicial review.
During a hearing that occurred in London early this morning, the duke's lawyers explained the reasoning behind this request. As reported by the Associated Press, Prince Harry's representative, Shaheed Fatima, said, “[The duke] does not feel safe when he is in the U.K. given the security arrangements applied to him.” She added, “It goes without saying that he does want to come back to see family and friends and to continue to support the charities that are so close to his heart. Most of all, this is—and always will be—his home.”
