Bodyguard says Meghan & Harry need royal security which would have saved Diana

Bodyguard says Meghan & Harry need royal security which would have saved Diana

01/21/2020

Michael Jackson's former bodyguard has insisted Megan and Harry need to keep their royal security as his mother Diana, Princess of Wales would be alive today if she'd had proper protection.

Matt Fiddes, who worked for the King of Pop for 10 years, has weighed in on the row over whether the Duke and Duchess of Sussex can keep their security detail – and who will pay for it – after stepping down as senior royals.

He's adamant that having proper security guards provided by the royals is necessary to keep them safe.

Fiddes even suggests that Diana's death in a car crash in Paris in 1997 could have been prevented if she'd been looked after properly after leaving the royal family.

In a post on Instagram , he wrote: "Lots of unanswered questions right now over Prince Harry and Megan's security, are the tax payers going to fund it?

"Do you think we should after what happened to Princess Diana? Princess Diana was left stranded without bodyguards!

"I have been told by insiders that had the royal protection been in place then she would still be alive today."

Fiddes is adamant the Queen and the royal advisors will have learnt from the tragic death of Harry's mother and will be keen to keep funding the couple's security despite them spending much of the year in Canada.

He added: "We are talking real Royalty here even without the titles being used! Prince Harry will still be the Kings son or Kings brother one day…

"My guess is that the Queen has learnt from mistakes made by Princess Diana’s tragic early death. And as a Grandmother she will be secretly protecting her grandson from the dangerous world we live in.


"If that’s taxpayers money or not we may never know. Until Harry and Meghan can cover the cost of their own security I think the taxpayer will be hit with the cost."

The Duchess of Sussex and her husband Harry have announced plans to step away from their roles as senior members of the royal family and split their time between the UK and Canada.

Part of their plans involves becoming financially independent by working instead of relying on handouts from the Crown and Harry's dad Prince Charles.

They have since confirmed they will be giving up their HRH titles and paying back the estimated £2 million they received for renovations to their Frogmore Cottage home, which will now stand empty for half the year.
