Prince Harry is continuing his case against the Home Office over their decision to remove his and wife Meghan Markle’s security detail in February 2020, after announcing Megxit. In the latest legal salvo, the former working royal complains that he doesn’t know who made the decision.
Well, that’s easy Harry. You left the royal family and the United Kingdom, and that includes the privileges that come with it as well.
It’s not a difficult concept. Anyone who leaves a job knows that you also leave the benefits behind. But if Megxit has taught the world anything over the last two years, it’s that Harry isn’t too bright. His obliviousness to the impact of his decision to leave as a working member of the royal family shows a stunning level of narcissism and arrogance.
In the latest hearing on Friday, which was mostly private, Harry is challenging the Executive Committee for the Protection of Royalty and Public Figures (Ravec) over the decision to remove his taxpayer funded security detail. More specifically, he wants to know who exactly made the official decision.
Apparently, it escapes Harry that the government has a vested interest in protecting the right of the taxpayers to not pay millions of dollars in order to protect a couple living a continent away who perform no official function for the U.K. people.
But petulant Harry, the royal’s legal team calls the Ravec application overly rigid and fails to account for all of the “relevant considerations.”
Per The Telegraph, “The Duke has also argued that the committee’s conclusions were ‘unreasonable’ and that ‘insufficient information’ was provided about Ravec policy ‘and/or members or those involved in Ravec’s decision.’”
His barrister, Shaheed Fatima QC, told the court that the duke’s team had “been asking about the membership” of Ravec and believed that it was relevant to “the claimant’s knowledge about who he was dealing with and in what capacity.”
Simply, Harry’s an entitled brat who doesn’t understand that his actions have consequences.
This idea that it’s too dangerous for the Sussex family to return to the U.K. could be addressed if they utilized their allegedly deep pockets to quietly enter the country and go to, for example, Windsor and spend their time within the secure confides of the castle grounds. Under the blanket protection of Windsor, Kensington, Buckingham, Balmoral, Sandringham or High Grove, they could have the security they crave as part of the efforts that are already there to cover other senior working members of the royal family.
But he, or rather Meghan, doesn’t want to.
This witch hunt Prince Harry is on with the Home Office is an underhanded attempt to try and reestablish his taxpayer funded security in the U.K. and around the world.
Though he remains sixth-in-line to the throne, Harry just doesn’t seem to understand that his relevance within the institution diminishes year after year. He is the spare, and his decision to leave the royal family makes it rather easy to remove his taxpayer funded security. As he is no longer working for the firm or his country, why should the taxpayers shell out millions to satisfy his ego?
At one point, Prince Harry was one of the most popular members of the royal family. But once Meghan got her hooks into him, he changed. He no longer embraced his status as the spare, and instead became this demanding and spoiled brat who wanted it all.
The government and the royal family, rightly said no. This crusade to unmask those behind the obvious decision make him look like a deluded fool who is desperate for the times where he was important enough to have a police escort.
For his public image, which has been wrecked the last couple of years, it would be best if Harry just dropped the whole case. But he won’t.
