The team of 15 guards who have been flown to Canada in order to provide 24/7 protection for the Sussexes, are reported to even be “picking up takeaways and groceries” for the couple. The highly trained protection staff have allegedly collected organic cuisine for Meghan, and coffees from fast-food chain Tim Hortons. It has been estimated that the cost of the Meghan and Prince Harry’s move to Canada will cost taxpayers between £3 million and £6 million a year, as staff work round the clock two weeks at a time.
According to The Sun, a royal security source confessed: “While the guys are happy to be out there doing the jobs, there is a feeling they are carrying out menial tasks, like picking up takeaways and groceries.”
“They are close protection officers – and should be sticking solely to close protection rather than running errands.
“It is dangerous for one thing because if something were to happen it would not be good if one of them was away running an errand or picking up coffee.’
It comes after the pair caused outrage for promoting mobile network Bell which has been linked to the death of a mentally ill man.
Previously the couple asked social media users to “talk” about their mental health in a new charity campaign.
On their Sussex Royal Instagram page, the royal couple have shared a story asking users to watch @bell_letstalk official video, and in exchange, the organisation will donate 5 cents per view to mental health initiatives in Canada.
However, it has now been revealed that the telecommunications giant has been criticised for its high costs and for its role in the death of prison inmate Cleve Geddes.
