RCMP to stop protecting Harry and Meghan 'in coming weeks'

The CBC says the message ends by saying "the assistance will cease in the coming weeks" because of the "change in status" of the couple.

On March 6, Harry will then join Lewis Hamilton to open the Silverstone UK Experience.

Harry and Meghan have made Vancouver Island their part-time home since visiting for Christmas 2019.

The couple were last seen together in public on 7 January when they visited Canada House in London to thank the nation for hosting them during their festive break in the Commonwealth country.

The former Hollywood actress allegedly complained to her closest confidants about the issue before releasing her extraordinary statement on Friday, complaining they are being treated differently to other royals.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau agreed to foot the security bill over the festive period only.

The Sussexes' website says they will continue to require security, but can not provide more details for "safety reasons".

However, that was the extent of the information offered, for privacy reasons.

It's unclear who will pick up the tab after that.

He added: "I think most Canadians are very supportive of having royals be here, but how that looks and what kind of costs are involved, there are still lots of discussions to have".

The couple caused a stir earlier this year when they announced they were essentially leaving the royal family to become private citizens.

The duke asked people to just call him Harry at his summit.

Introducing him to the stage on Wednesday at an event for his sustainable travel initiative, Travalyst, in Edinburgh, Scotland, the event's host, Ayesha Hazarika, said: "He's made it clear that we are all just to call him Harry, so ladies and gentlemen please give a big, warm Scottish welcome to Harry".

If there was any doubt when Meghan married Harry that she was a self-absorbed Hollywood liberal who is far more interested in being a celebrity than on helping others as a royal, there shouldn't be now.

It's also been revealed that Harry will attend engagements on February 28 and March 5.

Meghan may also mark International Women's Day the following day, having a year ago joined a special panel of "female thought-leaders and activists" to discuss modern-day feminism and women's empowerment.

MailOnline has asked the Sussex Royal team when Meghan will be returning to Britain before her next engagement on March 5, and whether the couple will be going to their United Kingdom home of Frogmore Cottage during their stay.

The duke and duchess announced their intention to set up a non-profit organisation instead of a foundation.

This outing marks the first of several engagements Harry and Meghan Markle will carry out before they step down from royal duties officially on March 31.
