THE HAGUE (ANP) – Prince Harry will have police protection in the Netherlands, unlike in the UK. The British prince was escorted to the swimming final by the Royal and Diplomatic Security Service (DKDB) during the Invictus Games in The Hague on Tuesday and transported in an armored car, it can be seen.
Prince Harry’s safety has been controversial, as judges in his home country previously ruled that the prince would no longer receive police protection there since he stepped down from royal duties two years ago. It was previously announced that Harry and Meghan also brought a security guard, former bodyguards to US presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, to the Invictus Games. The DKDB provided, among other things, the security of King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima and threatened politicians like Geert Wilders.
It is the first time since Harry and Meghan left their royal duties two years ago that the pair have appeared in the public eye outside of America. Due to security concerns, the couple did not attend the funeral of Harry’s grandfather, Prince Philip, earlier this year.
