If they permanently move to Canada should the Canadian government be on the hook for the millions in security costs?

With Royals, there is a constant
kidnapping threat from Irish
radicals. They need Secret Service
grade protection 24/7.

The problem is money as it always is.

Who cares
They could do a commercial and make plenty of scratch. I used to be a Royal, now I work for Flo at Progressive
The View could pick up Markle
They have a gazillion ways to make plenty of scratch
Dancing with the stars is probably reaching out

That is not the point. Who should pay for the needed protection? Britain, Canada where they are proposing to live or the US if they move there.

Ah, well maybe someone needs to give Harry a proper explanation. Which is maybe what they did at their meeting.

Who cares
Why do they need protection?
I don't see them any more important then any run of the mill celebrity.
Nobody cares who's paying to protect a celebrity.
Who paid for Edwards protection when he abdicated the throne. Did he even have protection after abdicating? He moved to France.

Edward spent most of his life after the abdiction in Nassau in a very nice compound entertaining the world. It is now a Sandals resort which I have stayed at. I believe at that time Britain paid for his life style.

As long as my tax dollars are not spent on royal protection, I could care less
Times have changed.
Its absurd that your status in society is based on your parents.
Why do they need protection?
Too me, their only value to society is the ability to raise money for charity but just about every celebrity on the planet has that ability.

He got an allowance. I think in the
40's it was $10,000 pounds a
year.

£10,000 in 1940 is equivalent in purchasing power to about £532,128.71 in 2018

Two people can live pretty well
today on half a million pounds.
That's about $400,000 USD.

The new law in Cut 'Em loose Coumo's single party NYS, eliminates bail for most misdemeanors and non-violent felonies.

Rob a bank, you go free. Assault a cop, you go free. Commit repeated assaults, you go free. Assaults are apparently considered non-violent under the new law.

This one assaulted an officer and was released the same day.

This one was arrested for assaulting three jewish women. She was released, and assaulted another the next day.

Gun permit applications are now up 1,000 percent in the Hassidic community.

This one robbed four banks and was released under the new law, because he didnít show a weapon. After he was released, he said, ďI canít believe they let me out. What were they thinking?Ē

A day later, he robbed a fifth bank. He will be released again, when he is captured.
