Prince Harry is currently suing for personal protection in Great Britain. He receives little support from his family on this topic. But according to a letter, his grandmother, the Queen, is said to have spoken out in favor of his protection during her lifetime.
According to media reports, British Queen Elizabeth II has campaigned for the personal protection of her grandson Prince Harry. This emerges from a letter from her former private secretary, reported the PA news agency and the Times newspaper, citing court documents. Harry and his wife Duchess Meghan withdrew from the royal inner circle almost three years ago.
The letter reported what was recorded at a crisis meeting at the Sandringham estate in January 2020. It was therefore important to the Queen (1926-2022) that Harry and Meghan were protected. “You will understand that the safety of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is of the utmost importance to Her Majesty and their family,” said the letter from their private secretary to the top government official.
According to the Queen, many points spoke in favor of protecting Prince Harry
Given Harry’s public profile because of his background, his military service, Meghan’s own profile and the documented threats, it is imperative that they receive effective protection, PA quoted. There was also reference to tragic incidents in the past, probably a reference to the death of Harry’s mother Princess Diana. She died in a car accident, harassed by paparazzi.
Harry is currently fighting a lawsuit against the UK Home Office for adequate personal protection. At the heart of it is whether he is entitled to the same security precautions as the rest of the royal family when he travels to his old homeland. He currently lives in the USA with his wife and children.
The excerpts from the letter emerged in another legal dispute against the publisher of the Mail on Sunday tabloid. According to the documents, Harry said he offered to pay for police protection in Sandringham in January 2020. This was not mentioned in the letter, the documents say. The ministry had rejected this – a lawyer had pointed out that police protection could not be bought.
