British media sources have claimed Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has offered to pay £500,000 for the security of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan.
The report claims that the Canadian prime minister and Liberal party leader has offered to use Canadian taxpayer cash to fund half of the estimated one million pounds per year security costs of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who announced on Monday that they will be moving to Canada.
Following the report, however, Canada’s finance minister Bill Morneau told reports in Toronto that the government had not made any concrete plans for the royal couple yet, claiming “we haven’t spent any time thinking about this issue.”
“We obviously are always looking to make sure, as a member of the Commonwealth, we play a role,” he added.
