On Sunday, President Donald Trump used the micro-blogging site Twitter to announce that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have to pay for their own security arrangements now that they were living in the United States.
The Sun and People had reported on Friday, citing anonymous sources, that the famous couple had moved to Los Angelos ahead of Canada’s border closing.
Trump tweeted: “I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!”
Chris Ship, a reporter for ITV News later tweeted that the couple had “no plans to ask the US government for security resources.”
“Privately funded security arrangements have been made,” the representative said, according to the tweet.
