Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been telling people for years that they are at risk from attack by white supremacists who’ve been encouraged by the tabloids spreading disinformation about them. Neil Basu, the former head of counter terrorism for the Met Police, recently confirmed that those threats were real: 


Harry and Meghan reiterated this point in their Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan. And just two days after the second volume of the series was released, the Sun proved their case when they published an article by Jeremy Clarkson who writes that he hates Meghan on a “cellular level” and fantasises about her being publicly abused, naked, through the streets. 

So there’s no doubt that the Sussexes need protection. Harry’s family, led by King Charles, his father, has refused to provide it presumably because Harry and Meghan are no longer working members of the British royal family which, sure, if we’re going strictly by those conditions, Charles’s rationale could be supported. 

But what about Prince Andrew? He is also no longer a working member of the British royal family because Jeffrey Epstein. Because he’s been accused of allegedly participating in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking operation. Because he’s a f-ckup and allegedly a pervert. So Andrew will no longer have taxpayer-funded protection either. And according to The Telegraph, he is “said to have written to the Home Office and Scotland Yard to complain about losing his police protection”. Which is also what Prince Harry is doing, as he’s filed two complaints with the Home Office about his security situation. 


And now The Telegraph is reporting that King Charles will step in and pay for his brother’s security.

“[Andrew’s] armed personal protection officers will be replaced by private security guards at an estimated cost of up to £3 million a year. The King is expected to foot the bill as the Duke has no discernible regular income.”

So that’s the justification now, is it? Because he can’t make money for himself? Because he’s never made money for himself but has always swanned about like an entitled buffoon? 

The institution’s excuse for not paying for Harry and Meghan was that they’re no longer working royals. But since that excuse also covers Andrew, and Andrew is too much of a loser to financially support himself, the reasoning has now changed to the fact that he has no income. Which means he’s beholden to his brother, the King. Which also means he’s compliant. 


And that’s the takeaway here with the monarchy. If you grovel, if you get on your knees and beg, even if you’re a loser and a liability, you will be rewarded. But if you are not submissive, you will be punished. That’s basically how Tyler Perry described it in the Netflix docuseries: 

“To use the institution to try and do all the things a batterer would do, like ‘We’re gonna cut off the money. We’re not gonna leave you security. We’re gonna do all those things to make you comply and come back”… 

He’s describing the tactics of an abuser, and he’s calling the British royal family abusive, at least initially when Harry and Meghan decided to leave. And on the other side they have consistently protected another member of the family who has been accused of sexual abuse and will now pay for his protection even though he contributes nothing and is the great family shame. Make that make sense.
