Canada paying for security of Duke and Duchess of Sussex, but to stop paying soon

BY , Feb 27, 2020 8:27 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

RCMP officers have been helping the United Kingdom's Metropolitan Police provide security for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex since they arrived in British Columbia late last year, but that help will end soon.

Public Safety Canada says it is obligated to provide security for Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and their infant son, Archie, because the couple are Internationally Protected Persons.

But a statement from the RCMP say its assistance will end in the coming weeks ``in keeping with the change in status'' of the Duke and Duchess.

Harry and Meghan have been living on Vancouver Island and say on their website that they will continue to require security after formally stepping back as senior royals at the end of March, but they haven't offered further details, citing ``safety reasons.''
