Author defends Harry as he admits fears over Meghan, Archie and Lilibets safety

An author has hit out at the Home Office's decision to previously not allow Prince Harry to personally pay for police protection despite his fears for his children's safety when visiting the UK.

Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu made the furious remarks after the Duke's application for a judicial review was thrown out which means his family are "unable to return to his home" because it is too dangerous, his legal team said.

The dad, who "inherited a security risk at birth, for life," was hoping to bring his wife Meghan Markle and their kids Archie and Lillibet to visit from the US.

He claims that his private protection team in the US does not have sufficient jurisdiction abroad or access to UK intelligence information which is needed to keep his family safe.

Harry has applied for a judicial review after previously offering to pay for the extra protection personally, and said it was "too dangerous" for his family to make a trip back to Britain.

Dr Shola claims she believes the Home Office only denied the Sussexes plea because they were influenced by the royal family. This has not been confirmed.

She went on to say that "certain people are trying to throw Prince Harry under the bus" to distract Brits from Prince Andrew facing a civil sexual assault case.

She posted to her thousands of followers on Twitter: "Y'all trying to get Prince Harry, Meghan & kids killed?

"Royal Family cut off security, Brits moan taxes can't be used for Sussexes & Home Office dismisses Sussexes paying for their security in UK. MAD!

"How dare you refuse them security at their own expense when they are at risk?"

Prince Harry's calls to be protected by Met Police bodyguards comes after an incident in London last summer when his security was compromised after his car was chased by paparazzi as he left a charity event.

In a statement to PA news agency, his legal representative said: “The UK will always be Prince Harry’s home and a country he wants his wife and children to be safe in.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex personally fund a private security team for their family, yet that security cannot replicate the necessary police protection needed whilst in the UK.

“In the absence of such protection, Prince Harry and his family are unable to return to his home.”

The Daily Star has contacted the Palace for comment.
