The future of royal couple Meghan Markle and Prince Harry appears to be shrouded in mystery. After announcing a desire to live in Canada, step down as senior royals and become financially independent many questions remain unanswered. One of the most pressing questions is who will pay for their security after the Sussexes move out of the United Kingdom.
Royal commentator Richard Berthelsen argued the Sussexes could “destabilise the Canadian system” as people are not yet sure how the couple will operate.
He added public opinion was shifting as more speculation begins to arise on the responsibility and cost of security.

“The Queen is our head of state and has representatives here in this country.
