Prince Harry (37) and his wife Duchess Meghan (41) are visiting Düsseldorf this Tuesday. In almost exactly a year, the Invictus Games created by Harry are to be held here. However, the Sussexes apparently have to pay for their safety themselves during their visit to the Rhine. As the "Daily Mail" reports, the German authorities classify Harry and Meghan's trip as a "private event". Police protection is therefore only granted to a limited extent.
At the town hall and later in the Düsseldorf football stadium, the venue for next year's Invictus Games, the police will only limit themselves to controlling incoming traffic. According to the "Daily Mail", bodyguards, who accompanied the Sussexes in Manchester yesterday, will also ensure the couple's safety in Düsseldorf - supplemented by a "small local security team".
The minor security precautions taken by the state in Düsseldorf may awaken unpleasant memories of the situation in England for the number six in line to the British throne. Here the Sussexes are no longer granted full police protection after their resignation from their royal duties, while Harry is taking legal action.
