Prince Harry: Police protection process begins

Prince Harry (39) continues to fight against the British Home Office's refusal to grant him police protection when he visits his home country. According to British media reports, the trial begins today in which Harry's lawyers are challenging the 2020 landmark decision of the Executive Committee for the Protection of Royalty and Public Figures (Ravec).

In May of this year, Harry suffered a defeat at the London High Court. He is not entitled to police protection in the UK even if he were to pay for it out of his own pocket. However, the court granted him the right to have Ravec's decision reviewed.

But the current trial concerns more fundamental matters. Harry's lawyers question whether everything was fair in the Ravec decision three years ago. They argue that the royal family could have had a hand in wanting to get one over on the renegade prince, who emigrated to the USA with his wife Meghan (42).

Edward Young (57) was a member of Ravec. At that time he was also the private secretary of Queen Elizabeth II, who died in 2022, after which he held this position for Harry's father, King Charles III. (75), pause. Today he is retired. Since there are "significant tensions" between Harry and the royal family, according to his lawyers, Ravec's decision is biased and "unfair."

The trial is scheduled to last three days. It is not yet clear whether Harry will appear in court in person.
