- The Royal family is said to be saving a staggering R98 million per annum on security bills for Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle
- Media reports in the United Kingdom suggest that the savings came about after Prince Charles decided to cut Harry off from his budget
- It is also reported that the Duke is now paying the money from his own pocket to ensure he and his family are safe
News coming through from the Royal Family is that Prince Harry is saving the family a whopping R98 million on security bills per year. According to media reports, the saving comes after Prince Charles decided to cut off security for the embattled Harry.
Express reports that Harry has had to adjust to paying for his own security and entourage after Prince Charles stopped funding him and his wife, Meghan Markle, last summer.
Prince Harry now pays for his own security and entourage bill
The English website has it that Harry’s security and entourage bill is now being footed by the Duke of Sussex himself as Charles abruptly stopped providing his son with financial support. A royal finance expert said the Duke would have to "generate a lot of income" in order to cover the total costs of the bill.
According to the publication, David McClure was speaking to the ITV documentary Harry and William: What Went Wrong?. McClure is quoted by Express:
"One of the biggest things Harry had to give up when he stopped being a working royal was someone paying for his security. Now it's been estimated that his security bill every year is about £3 million pounds.
"In addition to that, he has his big entourage of people - he has lawyers, he has managers, he has PR people. The total bill for that entourage has been estimated at about £5 million pounds a year. Now that means he has to generate a lot of income."
Allegedly, Prince Charles is moving into a single apartment when he is king, leaving Buckingham Palace behind
