Trump wrote on Twitter that"now they have left Canada for the US however, the US will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!"In January, the couple said they would step away from their royal duties.There is no indication that either Prince Harry or the British government has asked the US government to cover security costs, which some media reports have said run to millions a year.
The British Embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Britain’s Sun newspaper reported last week the couple took a private flight to Los Angeles, but did not say when.Earlier this month, the United States and Canada agreed to close their border to non-essential travel at land crossings to ease the strain on health systems caused by the coronavirus.
The couple had been living for several months with their son, Archie, on Vancouver Island in Canada.Meghan Markle was raised in the Los Angeles area and her mother, Doria, still lives there. 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!
