Meghan Markle and Prince Harry give a befitting reply to President Donald Trump, say they do not need US help for security


US President Donald Trump on Sunday announced through a tweet that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle must pay for their own security arrangements now that they have moved to the United States. Apparently, the tweet was in response to a news report that revealed that the royal couple has moved to Los Angeles along with their baby son Archie from Vancouver Island. However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have given a befitting reply saying that they are not asking Trump administration for any help. 

On Sunday, Trump had tweet, “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!"

However, a spokesperson for Prince Harry and Meghan cleared the air and said in a statement, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have no plans to ask the U.S. government for security resources. Privately funded security arrangements have been made."

The couple had taken the world by surprise when they announced in January their decision to step down from the role of senior royals in order to gain freedom from the intense media scrutiny that has followed them ever since they got married. They had said that they planned to relocate to Canada where their security arrangements were assisted by the government.
