The Duke of Sussex has filed a claim for a judicial review against a Home Office decision not to allow him to personally pay for police protection for himself and his family while in the UK. 

Harry wants to bring his son Archie and baby daughter Lilibet to visit from the US, but he and his family are "unable to return to his home" because it is too dangerous, a legal representative said.

It follows an incident in London in the summer of 2021 when his security was compromised after paparazzi photographers chased his car as he left a charity event. 

A legal representative said that the Duke wants to fund the security himself rather than ask taxpayers. However, he believes his private protection team in the US does not have adequate jurisdiction abroad or access to UK intelligence information needed to keep the Sussex family safe.
