Prince Harry Preoccupied with Security Challenges During UK Visits

Prince Harry no longer has his own home in the UK and must therefore take significant steps to protect his privacy during his visits, according to a royal expert. The Duke of Sussex has recounted the extreme lengths he went to to discreetly meet Meghan Markle early in their relationship in his book Spare. Now author and royal expert Tom Quinn has also highlighted Harry’s security challenges during his return visits to the UK.

In an exclusive chat with The Mirror, Tom said: “Harry is completely obsessed with the idea that any visit to the UK is fraught with security pitfalls – hence his ongoing legal action to challenge the decision of the British government for not funding its security.”

Speaking about Harry’s penchant for disguises and going incognito to avoid being stalked, Quinn shared his thoughts on the Duke’s accommodation preferences during his trip to the UK.

“Harry hates the idea of ​​hotels. The last time he stayed in a hotel while visiting the UK he had to leave and arrive virtually in disguise. The problems are even greater if he plans to staying with friends because he’s convinced he’s still there being watched by the media and they’ll find out where he’s staying,” Quinn said.

Recently, the Duke was engaged in a legal battle with the Home Office over the February 2020 decision by the Executive Committee for the Protection of Royalty and Public Figures (Ravec) that he should be granted a different degree of taxpayer-funded protection while in office. country.

Ravec’s decision came following a change in Harry’s “status” after he ceased to be a “full-time working member of the royal family”, a judge said.
