Prince Harry’s ‘blood on hands’ insult sparked Donald Trump’s furious ‘resentment’ of Duke

6506

PRINCE HARRY’S comment about Donald Trump during a prank phone call could be the reason the US President won’t pay the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s security cost according to a royal biographer.

Royal expert Angela Levin told BBC News that during his leaked phone call with Russian pranksters, the Duke of Sussex stated that President Trump had blood on his hands. Ms Levin stated that the US President may be resentful regarding the comment and as a result reluctant to pay for the security costs of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Ms Levin said: “They are no longer royal, they can’t use HRH.

“This is another reason why Donald Trump might have said that I am not going to pay because if they were royals he would pay.

“When Meghan went for her controversial baby shower in New York when she was pregnant, he did pay for the security.

“We paid some and he paid some.

“Also, I suspect he does not like the fact that Harry was caught out saying that he has blood on his hands when there was this leak on his phone, and he thought he was talking to Greta Thunberg and her father.

“I think if somebody calls you that, particularly if you have a nature like Mr Trump, you feel a bit resentful about offering to pay.”

Yesterday Donald Trump tweeted: “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!”

Last month a former royal bodyguard stated that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry need to keep protection. 

Jacqui Davis, a former bodyguard who has experience protecting royals, told the BBC’s World at One the private sector did not have the same level of resources available to the public sector when it comes to security. 

Ms Davis said: “I seriously believe that they need to keep police protection.

“As good as we are in the private sector, it is not just about the people on the ground.

“You have intelligence in the background.

“You have got to FTAC which Scotland Yard has.

“FTAC is people who are known to have a grudge against the Royal Family and are kept an eye on I believe.

“So you need all of that.

“If something goes wrong in the private sector we haven’t got several carriers of policemen sitting around the corner coming to our assistance.”
