Prince Harry Hires Armed Guards After Taliban Threats
After his revelations, the prince now does not leave the house without being accompanied by bodyguards with weapons. Prince Harry’s desire to make money and denigrate his family in his memoir “Spare” and numerous interviews has led to the fact that now he is accompanied everywhere by a whole squad of armed bodyguards.
As he was heading to The Late Show studio in New York, a security guard was seen beside him carrying a briefcase containing a Glock pistol.
Prince Harry was in New York on Monday evening and appeared on the show with host Stephen Colbert.
The interview will be broadcast a day later, and Harry came to record his episode. The 38-year-old prince is in the spotlight after his memoir, titled Spare, officially hit the shelves.
True, they did not cause a proper stir, because a Spanish-language book came into the possession of the media last week. So all the tabloids have been discussing the revelations of the prince for several days now.
Although the Prince became increasingly concerned about his safety after moving to the United States, he often said that he felt vulnerable. But he had not appeared for a long time with a bodyguard who clearly demonstrated the presence of weapons. Harry and Meghan are believed to use security firm Gavin de Becker and Associates, a private Los Angeles-based company that charges up to $8,800 a day.
Unlike the UK, where private armed guards are prohibited, in the US guards often carry firearms.
Harry has previously said paying for private armed security is one of the reasons he has sought to sign lucrative deals in the US — like his memoir, for which publisher Penguin Random House reportedly paid him a $20 million advance. ET Canada reported an even more extravagant amount, saying the deal was for four issues with a fee of $35–40 million.
His public relations team said, “With its raw, unwavering honesty, Spare is a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, introspection and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief.”
They described Harry as “husband, father, humanitarian, war veteran, mental health and environmental advocate. He lives in Santa Barbara, California with his family and three dogs.”
True, in the chapters from the memoirs, Prince Harry has already managed to talk about the loss of innocence, drug use, and even how he managed to freeze his penis during an expedition to the North Pole.
The Duke of Sussex’s memoir – SPARE – isn’t published until Tuesday next week, but already we know quite a lot about it. A series of leaks – and an earlier-than-planned publication in Spain – has generated plenty of reactions.@Julian5News
