Prince Harry has filed a lawsuit to benefit from the services of policemen who cover their expenses himself to protect him and his family during a visit to Britain, according to what one of his lawyers announced.
The Duke of Sussex Harry and his wife Meghan have lost the right to protection from the police in Britain after their decision to withdraw from the royal family in 2020. The couple currently live in California with their two children Archie and Lilibet.
A legal representative for Harry said the prince wanted to take his two children home with him, but he and his family were unable to return due to risks to them, including threats from "extremists and neo-Nazis".
And in the summer of 2021, "his security was in danger due to the lack of police protection when he left a charity event,"
According to the legal representative.
Harry's car was stalked by celebrity photo hunters in London on June 30 after meeting sick children.
This judicial path, launched by Harry in September, aimed at re-examining a decision issued by the Ministry of the Interior, may embarrass the royal family, which is already facing a threat to prosecute Prince Ando, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II, in the United States for sexual assault.
In order to preserve the royal family, the Queen, a few days ago, deprived her son Andrew of any official role and stripped him of his military titles, while voices were raised demanding that he include the expenses of his personal security.
"Britain will always be Prince Harry's home and a country where he wants his wife and children to be safe," Prince Harry's representative said in a statement to the BPA news agency.
She has yet to meet seven-month-old Lilibit (the title of Queen Elizabeth during her childhood), after her grandfather, Prince Charles, and mother, Elizabeth II.
Prince Harry's last visit to Britain dates back to last summer when, on July 1, he participated in the unveiling of a statue of his mother, Diana, who died in Paris in 1997 in a car accident after being chased by celebrity snipers.
A government spokesman said the system relating to the protection of personalities was "accurate and consistent", without elaborating on the measures or the judicial process that Harry launched.
