Queen DISMISSES Harry’s promises to ‘protect’ her as she looks to hire security

[ad_1]

THE Queen has dismissed Prince Harry’s vow to “protect” his grandmother by quietly seeking to hire new security experts.

Earlier this month the Duke of Sussex told NBC how he wants to “protect” the Queen by ensuring she has the “right people” around her.

And now Royal author Richard Eden says the Royal Household is quietly seeking to recruit a new “physical and technical security adviser”.

Writing in the Mail, Eden says the Palace “advertised for the £50,000-per-year position on the royal website, stressing that the successful candidate must have “a good, current knowledge of national and international security”.

He added: “The adviser will be based at Buckingham Palace, but shall review security across all royal residences, including the Palace of Holyrood House in Edinburgh and Balmoral in Aberdeenshire.

“They will be expected to work with the Home Office, Metropolitan Police and Homeland Security, too.”

Meanwhile, it was claimed Prince Andrew is the reason Harry fears the Queen needs protection, Buckingham Palace aides reportedly believe.

It is understood the Duke of Sussex, 37, was furious at seeing his disgraced uncle walking by Her Majesty’s side at Prince Philip’s memorial.

  • Meeting in secret: Prince Harry kept his meeting with the Queen private from Royal Aides

    The revelation comes after Meghan Markle’s friend Omid Scobie let slip that Harry and the Queen met in private.

    According to Omid Scobie, Harry and Meghan keep their whereabouts private from the Queen’s staff.

    However his claims have come into question as the Sussex’s stayed within the Royal grounds before meeting the Queen.

    When the meeting took place over two weeks ago, it was the first time Harry was able to spend time completely alone with his grandmother, without the watchful eyes of staff.

  • EAMONN Holmes has been hit with more than 400 complaints after saying Prince Harry should be “thrown over the balcony”.

    The GB News Breakfast Show host, 62, did not mince his words last week when speaking about Harry and wife Meghan’s secret visit to see the Queen.

    While talking about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to his co-star Isabel Webster, Eamonn said: “[He’s] gotta be photographed. He’s got to be on that balcony.

    “He’s bringing a book out where he’s slagging off Camilla and maybe William and his father.

    “Why wouldn’t they just throw him over the balcony and her with him?”

    But his opinion on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did not sit well with all viewers.

    PRINCE Harry faces a staff revolt with workers at his California mental health business threatening to quit or sue over claims they are being unethically treated.

    The Duke of Sussex’s role as ‘Chief Impact Officer’ at mental health app BetterUp has also been called into question with angry employees saying his job is “smoke and mirrors”.

    Staff blasted the Tinder-style app valued at $5bn having “questionable ethics” after learning of plans for a “sneaky” pay cut of up a third of their pay packet.

    Some of the 2,000 mental health life coaches are now threatening to sue or quit the Silicon Valley start-up.

    One told American news site The Daily Beast: “For a company (whose) mission is to help empower people throughout the world… They’re not walking the walk.”

    Another added: “There’s so many of us now who are upset. I would say my heart is broken. And I think there’s really questionable ethics going on.They’ve turned us into a commodity”.

  • Andrew stripped of Freedom of York

    The city of York yesterday stripped Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, of the freedom of the city.

    Local councillors voted en masse to rescind the honour bestowed on Andrew, Queen Elizabeth’s second son, in 1987.

    Andrew, who has fallen from grace as a member of Britain’s royal family, in February settled a U.S. lawsuit by Virginia Giuffre accusing him of sexually abusing her when she was a teenager, potentially sparing him further embarrassment.

    “The honorary freedom of our great city is bestowed on those who represent the very best of York. It’s inappropriate for Prince Andrew to retain any connection to our city,” said Darryl Smalley, a York city councillor.

    Andrew, 62, did not admit wrongdoing in agreeing to settle the civil lawsuit.

    He has not been accused of criminal wrongdoing.

  • Explosive new book claims Meghan snared ‘mentally fragile’ Harry

    Tina Brown, the well-connected former editor of Vanity Fair, Tatler and The New Yorker, spoke to 120 sources for her account of The Firm’s past 25 years.

    From Megxit to Andrew’s scandals, here we look at the revelations from The Palace Papers: Inside The House Of Windsor – The Truth And The Turmoil.

    WHEN Meghan Markle first met Prince Harry, she did not see him just as a potential lover but the “solution to every problem she had”.

    At 37, she was a woman “famished for prestige, frantic for validation”. Despite seven years on US telly show Suits, no big-time talk shows were knocking and no other acting jobs were offered. But with Harry, her star could soar.

    In her new book, Tina Brown writes: “The morning after their first date, she spoke about Harry to a girlfriend as if he were a hot submission from her agent. ‘Do I sound crazy when I say this could have legs?’”

    It is one of many nuggets unearthed by Brown.
