King Charles removed the couple’s taxpayer-funded police protection after they stepped down from royal duties back in 2020, a UK news outlet reported,King Charles III stripped Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s personal security in the UK to keep the couple under control, it has been reported.
Charles removed the couple’s taxpayer-funded police protection after they stepped down from royal duties back in 2020, Byline Times reported.“The Sussexes had either to be safely in the tent in Britain or cast away and castigated as comprehensively as
possible in order to reduce the threat of them eclipsing the rest of the family,” a source told the UK outlet.
“The greater truth is that Harry and Meghan make better headlines than the King and Camilla or William and Kate,” the source added. “The idea of them still being in public service but abroad and out of the control of the institution and dominating the media narrative just couldn’t happen.”
The outlet said that the royal family “tried everything to make it fail, starting with the removal of security and then signing off on a 12-month assault by the U.K. press on Harry and Meghan and everyone in their orbit.”
Kinsey Schofield, host of the “To Di For Daily” podcast, told Fox News Digital that she believes Harry and Meghan were anyway planning to leave the firm. “It is my belief that Harry and Meghan never intended to commit long-term to the royal family and the royals felt blindsided by their decision and distanced themselves to protect themselves from Harry and Meghan’s erratic behavior,” she said.
