Prince Harry is getting his dad to fork over $2.5 million per 12 months towards his post-Megxit US security costs that sparked a diplomatic spat with President Trump, in accordance to a report.
Trump sternly insisted Harry and spouse Meghan Markle “should pay” for their very own security after jetting into their new life in California — with the couple insisting that “privately funded security preparations have been made.”
These preparations are being fronted by Harry’s dad, the UK’s 71-year-old inheritor to the throne, Prince Charles, a royal supply advised the Each day Mail.
“Charles has agreed to pay a ‘non-public contribution’ to the Sussexes. It won’t be revealed how a lot and what that’s used for, however it’s believed to be round £2 million,” the supply mentioned of what equates to slightly below $2.5 million.
“Nevertheless, the Prince of Wales doesn’t have an infinite sum of money,” the supply mentioned — whereas conceding his annual earnings from his non-public property, the Duchy of Cornwall, is round $26 million.
Web page Six first reported on Friday that the couple left their $14 million bolthole in Canada and took a non-public jet with child Archie to the Los Angeles space earlier than the borders had been closed amid the coronavirus disaster.
Meghan’s mom Doria lives in Los Angeles, and the 38-year-old former “Fits” star grew up there.
Their security invoice is probably going to be even greater than first thought as a result of British cops are unable to carry weapons within the US, which means the couple wants to rent non-public guards, the Mail says.
Buckingham Palace refused to touch upon the report nor whether or not it meant UK taxpayers would now not have to contribute in the direction of any future invoice, the Mail mentioned.
