President Donald Trump says Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘must pay’ for their own security after moving to California

US President Donald Trump has publicly stated that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have to pay for their own security while living in the US.

After stepping down from their positions as working members of the Royal family, Prince Harry and Meghan moved to Canada to live with their baby son Archie.

It’s now reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have relocated to Meghan’s native California to set up home permanently.

However, Trump has tweeted to say that the US won’t be footing the bill for their security as he wrote: “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!"

Meghan and Harry’s spokesperson has responded to the comments saying: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have no plans to ask the U.S. government for security resources.

"Privately funded security arrangements have been made."

An insider told The Sun of the royal pair's move to California: “Harry and Meghan have left Canada now for good. The borders were closing and flights were stopping. They had to get out.

“But this move was planned for some time. They realised Canada would not work out for various reasons and they want to be based in the Los Angeles area.

“They have a big support network there. It’s where their new team of Hollywood agents and PRs and business managers are based. Meghan has lots of friends there and, of course, her mum Doria.”

Trump’s comments come after Prince Harry discussed him in a hoax Greta Thunberg phone call.

Harry was hoaxed by two Russian pranksters posing as Greta Thunberg and her dad and spoke openly about the reaction to him and wife Meghan Markle, 38, stepping down as "senior" members of the Royal family, while he also touched on his views on Boris Johnson, Donald Trump and the controversy surrounding his uncle, Prince Andrew.

Harry spoke to the pranksters on two occasions from Canada, with the phone calls taking place on New Year's Eve and 22 January.

The intimate calls have been recorded and published online by Russian jokers Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov.

He told the fake Greta: "[Donald] Trump will want to meet you to make him look better but he won't want to have a discussion about climate change with you because you will outsmart him."

However, he complimented Prime Minister Boris Johnson, adding: "I think he is a good man, so you are one of few people who can reach into his soul and get him to feel and believe you.

"But you have to understand that because he has been around for so long like all of there other people, they are already set in their way."
