Prince Harry has lost a bid to legally challenge the British government’s decision not to allow him to pay for police protection while he is in the UK.


King Charles’s younger son was stripped of the police security usually afforded to royal figures after he and his American wife, Meghan, stepped down from their official roles in 2020 to move to the US.


The high court in London, which last year agreed he should be allowed to challenge an original decision to end the protection, ruled on Tuesday he could not also seek a judicial review over whether to let him pay for the specialist police officers himself.
