A couple of hearings have already been held over Harry’s legal challenge, including earlier this month and in February, when Harry’s lawyer said in a statement, “Duke does not feel safe when he is in the U.K. given the security arrangements applied to him in June 2021 and will continue to be applied if he decides to come back. He wants to return to family and friends, and continue his support of the charities that are dear to him. He considers this his home.

Days earlier, a court filing stated that that the U.K. Home Office planned to oppose Harry’s challenge, maintaining that Harry “failed to afford the necessary measures of respect to the Home Office and RAVEC as the expert, and democratically accountable, decision-maker on matters of protective security and associated risk assessment.”

According to the filing, the Home Office maintained that Harry’s offer to privately pay for police security was “irrelevant,” adding that “personal protective security by the police is not available on a privately financed basis.”

Harry’s legal representative stated that Harry had “inherited a risk of security at birth and for life” in a statement released this January. He also said that Harry and his family have been the victims of well-documented neo Nazi threats and neo-Nazi attacks.
