Harry and Meghan to pay back £2.4m bill if Charles agrees to fund their security

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could repay taxpayers for Frogmore Cottage if Prince Charles pays their US security bill.

The royal couple owe £ 2.4 million to taxpayers who receive compensation for renovating the property as part of an agreed deal since they broke up as senior members of the royal family on March 31.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were forced to ask Prince Charles to help with their finances because they were left with a lack of money after being robbed from their security team after moving out of the UK.

According to Mail Online, Harry initially thought he could keep his security team, but the problem quickly became political, and Canada refused to pay for their protection.

After moving to the US, Donald Trump also made clear that he would not be paying the massive £ 4 million security bill.

Earlier, a source told the Daily Mail, “Charles has agreed to pay a” private contribution “to the Sussexes.

“It will not be revealed how much and what it is used for, but it is believed to be around £ 2 million. It would come as no surprise if it paid the security bill.

However, the Prince of Wales does not have an infinite amount of money. The total income from the Duchy of Cornwall is approximately £ 21 million annually. ”

Harry and Meghan will be able to repay taxpayers and settle their debts once Prince Charles bears the cost of their security.

The Mail Online reports that the couple may have started repaying the money spent on Frogmore in April, because they had given up Metropolitan Police security around that time.

An estimated £ 18,000 is paid monthly.

A source told the Daily Mail: “They had fully expected British taxpayers to continue paying the bill for their protection, but then the rug was pulled away from under their feet and they had to ask Prince Charles to intervene.

“That is why they can now start repaying the Queen and the Crown Estate, who have paid the public construction costs.”
