As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially leave the Royal Household tomorrow, their reported move from Canada to L.A. has sparked a huge Twitter Debate with the man himself, The Donald!
I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!

In the meantime, a spokesperson for the royal couple replied that they had no intention of asking, and that they had arranged their own ‘privately funded security’.
This whole thing started as, Trump has final say over whether Meghan and Harry can have diplomatic protection in the US, and this is because Harry will no longer be considered as an ‘international protected person’ when he completes the final phase of Megxit tomorrow. The bill for their security is currently covered by British taxpayers through the Metropolitan Police budget.
Meghan has had some issues with President Trump in the past, blasting him as ‘misogynistic’ and ‘divisive’, during an interview before he was elected to office.
Last year the President hit back at the former actress saying: ‘I didn’t know she was nasty’.
Harry and Meghan caused quite a stir earlier this year when they made the shock announcement that they were quitting Royal life and leaving the UK.
The Megxit process will finally be complete tomorrow when the couple will stand down as senior Royals.
