Prince Harry's plans for UK return thrown into chaos after recent court loss

Prince Harry’s plans to return to the UK in the wake of the ongoing royal health crisis hit a snag after losing his latest court battle.

The Duke of Sussex was reportedly planning to resume his royal duties after visiting his cancer-stricken father King Charles earlier this month.

However, the Spare author lost court case against the UK government over public-funded security provisions whenever he visits the country.

Retired High Court judge Sir Peter Lane denied any “unlawfulness” in the Home Office’s decision to pull his security after Harry and his wife Meghan Markle stepped down from their royal positions in 2020.

"Any departure from policy was justified. The decision was not irrational,” the statement read.

"The decision was not marred by procedural unfairness. Even if such procedural unfairness occurred, the court would in any event be prevented from granting the claimant relief,” he affirmed.

Though the duke vowed to appeal the court’s decision, the legal process could take long, preventing Harry to visit the King with his family during his battle with cancer due to security purposes.

A source recently told OK! that the former royal was holding “government-level” talks to bring his two children, Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet, 2 to see his father.

However, Meghan was understood to be apprehensive about the decision due to her traumatizing treatment from the British public during her time in the royal family.
