Canada refuses to pick up security tab of Megixted Royals

Feb 28, 2020 13:57 IST

Canadian government has said that is will not be paying for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s security when they step down as full-time royals in March. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police or Mounties have provided security for the Royal Family since the unprecedented relocation in November. As members of the Royal family, Harry and Meghan are entitled to 24/7, taxpayer-funded protection whether on official duties or on vacation. However, Canadian Taxpayers Federation handed a petition with 80,000 signatures to the Prime Minister’s office insisting that Canadian taxpayer money should not be used for Harry and Meghan. The couple are due to officially leave the British Monarchy on March 31.
