Prince Harry Court Battle Continues Over Security Issues

A trial involving Prince Harry began Tuesday over his security arrangements after he abandoned his royal duties and moved to the U.S.

The case concerns the payment of his U.K. protection initiated by his father, King Charles III.

"Harry is taking legal action against the UK interior ministry over a February 2020 decision by a committee that deals with the security of members of the royal family," AFP reported.

"The Duke of Sussex, as he is formally known, had been told he would no longer be given the 'same degree' of personal protective security that he previously enjoyed," it added.

"Due to privacy concerns, most of the hearing will be held behind closed doors, with only today open to the public," the Mirror reported.

"The legal battle comes after a long-running row between Prince Harry and the government over whether he qualifies for armed protection amid a rocky time for the royal family as they grapple with the fallout from the latest bombshell royal book," it continued.

Many residents in the U.K. are angered over the move by Harry's lawyers to continue funding his protection after his move from the country.

The legal challenge claims that he does not have enough legal protection for his location in California and when he travels, pressing for British funds to continue covering the costs of his family's personal security.

The effort could backfire for Harry, leaving him with lower public opinion than he already has, and could end up costing him great legal expenses with no victory.

The outcome is still to come but the British courts are soon to determine whether any changes will be made in the family drama impacting the nation.
