Prince Harry reportedly ‘going to lose’ against the British government
The government reportedly ‘refuses’ to cave in on Prince Harry’s security row for Archie and Lilibet.
This claim has been made by a former police protection officer, Ken Wharfe.
He addressed the ‘unwise’ decision of the Duke of Sussex and pointed out the alleged naivety of his claims, for he’d “never be refused protection.”
The expert addressed it all during his interview with the Pod Save the Queen podcast.
There, he began by admitting, “I don't know whom he advised him to take legal action against the British Government and the Metropolitan Police. I think it was an unwise thing to do because that, in essence, raises negative publicity.”
When asked about the issue of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s personal security team being barred from accessing Intelligence Intel and carrying personal firearms, Mr Wharfe added, “But I think the Government and the Metropolitan Police would have seen it would have been wrong to see this man, a global icon and celebrity in his own right, step onshore in the United Kingdom without any protection whatsoever.”
“So that was never the case that the Government and the police wouldn't have provided a liaison to guarantee his safety and that of his wife and children.”
He also offered some personal insight and admitted, “My own view is that Harry rather overplayed that and that was a mistake on his part.”
“I personally think it won't rumble on and it will stabilise - and I think he will realise if he does come back that of course there will be protection there.”
“The country does have a responsibility to make sure that he is safe. But I don't see the government or the police for that matter caving in on it.”
At the end of the day, “I think Harry will have to work a little bit harder and understand that the government and the police are here to help him and they will do so.”
