Royal expert Marlene Koenig insisted that the Royal Family did not cut Prince Harry and Meghan Markle off from security benefits when they chose to step down from their duties. During an interview with Express.co.uk, Ms Koenig argued it is the Metropolitan police who deals with the security of the monarchy, not the Royal Family. She added the Duke of Sussex needed to take responsibility for his actions and mocked him for failing to start “adulting” after making the crucial decision to step down as a working royal.
Ms Koenig said: “They left last year in March 2020, it was announced, right before that Canada and the UK would stop paying for their security.
“This was so they could be responsible as they were making the break.
“During the interview, Prince Harry made a comment that he was cut off financially and had to dip into my inheritance, I am just paraphrasing.
“Prince Harry, you have far more money just in your bank account than I will ever see.

“The Royal Family did not cut off your security, that is taxpayer-funded.
“The Metropolitan police, which runs the protection services makes that decision.
“The Canadian taxpayers were paying, so why should they be paying for someone who is no longer representing or working for them.
“I thought that was a bit ingenuous.”

Ms Koening insisted it was Prince Harry’s responsibility for protecting his family.
She added that since he and Meghan took the decision to step away from their roles in the Royal Family, you must now take responsibility for that choice.
She continued: “Prince Harry moved to the US at the start of a pandemic, people were losing their jobs, living in cars because they had no money and people weren’t able to get food and you are worried that you are going to have to dip into your trust funds?
“That sort of thing turns me off for that.

“That was just an element of the interview that bothered me, I am pro-Meghan and Harry, I am pro everyone except Andrew.
“I just think that did not come off well, if you are going to want to protect your wife and family, you are responsible.
“If you make a decision and say goodbye, you need to be adulting, it is part of being an adult.
“I think Harry had this belief that they could remain half in and half out.”
