Prince Harry is ‘petulant’ and ‘can’t have it both ways’, says royal expert

Prince Harry has been blasted as "petulant" after news he has threatened to legal action on the British government amid a row over security.

While the Duke of Sussex, 37, opted for a "private life" in the United States when he quit his royal duties, he has pled for security when he returns home with his wife Meghan Markle, 40, and their two children – offering to foot the bill.

Now, royal expert Jennie Bond has told OK! that the dad of two is coming across as "petulant" and "he can't have it both ways".

She said: "It's one thing to request security, but it's another to threaten to sue your grandmother's government. He comes across as petulant.

"Harry can't pick and choose like this, he can't have it both ways and he's beginning to realise that having given up his royal duties, he's going to lose privileges which he thought were by birth his."

The expert added that she doesn't know why the team he has in America can't provide "sufficient security".

Jennie said: "I would have thought there was a lot less danger in the UK than the gun-toting American world he lives in now.

"You can't just hire Scotland Yard, they don't have officers sitting around and I understand if it is required then it will be provided."

Since it was reported Harry claimed it wouldn't be safe to return to the UK without full protection, Prince Charles reporrtedly offered him an "olive branch" by inviting him to stay at Clarence House..

Jennie explained that Harry and his family will be safe if they stay with the Prince of Wales, and therefore shouldn't be "on the attack".

"If he stays at Frogmore House or a Royal residence, if he stays with Charles, as it has been suggested, there'll be security anyway," she shared.

"I think he's very ill-advised to be so churlish about this. He seems to be on the attack when he shouldn't be."

The government removed Harry and Meghan's UK police security following their decision to relocate to the States, where they have brought up their two children – baby Lilibet and two-year-old Archie.

This comes after royal author Duncan Larcombe explained that Harry has exactly the same life despite quitting his royal duties.

"I think what concerns Harry's friends that have known him growing up is the fact that Harry and Meghan were escaping," he shared.

"We were told they were going for a more private life away from the bind of the ceremony and what comes with royal life.

"But what Harry has got out of America because they are effectively carrying on as though they are a royal couple in all but name."
