Before Potential UK Trip, Prince Harry Encounters Legal Setback Also Loses Initial Appeal in Security Case

Prince Harry’s initial attempt to challenge the dismissal of his legal case regarding UK police protection has been unsuccessful. This setback comes shortly after the London High Court upheld the government’s decision to remove his security cover while he’s in the UK.

Despite this, the US-based Royal plans to attend the tenth anniversary of the Invictus Games in Britain this May.

“The reality of the matter is that the claimant considers he should receive a different approach to his protection whilst in the UK than RAVEC decided he should, based in part on the comparison of his position with that of others,” Judge Peter Lane stated, as quoted by Reuters.

The direct appeal to the Court of Appeal option is now available to Prince Harry. Additionally, he’s been instructed to cover 90% of the Home Office’s “reasonable costs” incurred in defending the case.

The Duke of Sussex initiated legal action after the Home Ministry’s decision in February 2020, which excluded him from automatic personal police security in the UK.

Previously, Harry was entitled to full publicly-funded security protection as a working senior royal. However, he and his wife Meghan, an American, relocated to California in March 2020, stepping back from royal duties.

King Charles may extend an olive branch to Harry, and Meghan; keen on meeting grandchildren.

Amidst discussions about a potential reconciliation within the Royal family, particularly as two senior members battle cancer, reports are suggesting King Charles might extend an invitation to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Page Six reported that the monarch is keen on meeting his grandchildren Archie and Lilibet this summer.

“I can see Charles desperately wanting to see the children and extending this olive branch to Meghan and Harry. He may decide that life is just too short,” commented an insider to Page Six.
