Prince Harry’s Supreme Court claims are expected to cost taxpayers more than £1million.
Defending his bid to hire a UK police officer cost £502,326 when it was rejected last month.
He intends to have that judgment overturned later this year, with costs also likely to rise to over £500,000.
Home Office officials are understood to be furious at the rising costs he’s forcing on them.
Amazingly, 38-year-old Harry only has less than £10,000 to pay in court costs.
Our Freedom of Information request shows that £492.00 is being ripped out of taxpayers’ pockets in the last month’s case.
Sources told The Sun that the Home Office could not recover the costs due to an unspecified loophole.
Ingrid Seward of Majesty Magazine said, “If people here can’t pay their mortgages, someone with such privileges as Harry can get away with a whole trial for nothing.”
“It just seems wrong.
“People won’t understand why he lost his case when the taxpayer has to pay half a million pounds for it.
“Especially in a crisis in the cost of living, that’s very irritating.”
Based in California Harry and wife Meghan resigned as working royals three and a half years ago.
He says it is unfair and illegal to remove his armed guard when visiting the UK.
The Home Office and Met Police continue to fight the case, arguing that it is not in the public interest.
And last month the Supreme Court agreed with the Met – which said it would set a precedent that would allow any millionaire to fund their own police force.
