There have been intense reports in the media that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Megan Markle, could be relocating to the United States of America from Canada as they prepare to step down as senior royals come March end.
US president Donald Trump has informed Prince Harry and Megan Markle that their security bills will not be footed by the country’s government.
Trump says the couple should not expect their security expenses estimated at $1M to be covered by his country if they make the move to America.
The president made this known via his official Twitter page on Sunday, March 29, 2020, where he fired the notice in time for their proposed arrival into the country.
According to him, Harry and Megan will be paying for their private security details as not even his friendship with the Queen or admiration for the United Kingdom will sway the US into funding it.
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!

The Sussex royals has since responded back to the President’s notice by stating that the couple have no plans to ask for the American government to pay for anything.
In a statement the couple said: “The duke and duchess have no plans to ask the US government for security resources. Privately funded security arrangements have been made.”
Reports also says that the family would be living in Los Angeles area where Meghan grew up and where her mother, Doria Ragland, now lives.
