‘They Must Pay!’ Donald Trump Says US Will NOT Pay For Harry And Meghan’s Security After California Move

The US will not pay for the security protection of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, President Donald Trump has said.

Queen Elizabeth Reacts To Prince Harry And Meghan Markle's Independence DecisionPrince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly left Canada permanently and moved to California amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been living in Vancouver after leaving the UK and stepping back from their roles as senior members of the royal family.

But they are now living in lockdown near Hollywood with their 10-month-old son Archie, in line with California rules on coronavirus, after taking a private jet to the US, according to reports.

But tweeting on Sunday evening, Mr Trump called himself a “friend” of the Queen and the UK but that the Sussexes “must pay” for their own security.

Mr Trump wrote: “I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!”

It comes after it was revealed that Meghan is the narrator of a short Disney film about elephants to be released next month.

The news of the couple’s move also comes after Prince Harry’s father Prince Charles, 71, tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday.

The tweet by Mr Trump comes just days before the couple are due to officially step down as senior royals. Sixth in line to the throne Harry and American former actress Meghan are walking away from the monarchy for a life of personal and financial freedom on March 31.Photo Credit: Getty
