PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle will have to fork out for their own security after moving to the US, Donald Trump revealed tonight.
The President waded in on the row and refused to foot the couple’s huge £20million security bill after they quit the royal family.
“Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!”
The couple have been staunch critics of Trump in the past. Meghan snubbed him at a Buckingham Palace banquet last year and Harry recently claimed the American leader had “blood on his hands” for ignoring climate change.
Harry’s disparaging remarks were made in a prank phone call – revealed by The Sun – where he was fooled into thinking he was talking to activist Greta Thunberg.
They responded to the comments overnight, saying: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have no plans to ask the U.S. government for security resources.
“Privately funded security arrangements have been made.”
MEGXIT PART TWO
It comes as The Sun revealed the couple have moved from their £10.7million mansion they were borrowing in Vancouver, Canada with 10-month-old Archie to Los Angeles.
They fled Canada amid the coronavirus pandemic on a private flight before the borders between Canada and the US were shut.
But questions still surround their huge security bill, which includes ferrying nine highly-skilled Metropolitan Police officers between the UK and US.
It is feared British taxpayers will have to fork out – but it could land in the couple’s laps or even be paid by the Queen or Prince Charles.
Scotland Yard and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police had been providing round-the-clock security for the couple and baby Archie in their rented mansion in Vancouver.
But Canada previously confirmed it will stop providing protection for the Sussexes once they cease to be senior royals on March 31.
The couple’s move to America is said to have “stunned and horrified” members of the Royal Family.
They believed Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, would consider returning to Britain during the coronavirus pandemic.
Prince Charles, 71, test positive for Covid-19 and The Queen, 93, and ailing Prince Philip, 98, have been put into self-isolation.
But Meghan is looking to re-start her Hollywood carer and has already landed a part in a Disney documentary.
The ex-Suits star has been confirmed as the narrator for Disney+’s new show Elephant after her husband was filmed suggesting her for a job at the Lion King premiere.
Meghan and Harry quit as senior royals earlier this year – announcing they wanted to become “financially independent”.
They returned to the UK this month to complete their final engagements as a royal but left baby Archie, who is ten months, back in Canada.
