‘Scotland Yard officers guarding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s have said they are treated ‘like skivvies’ and forced to do ‘menial tasks’ like picking up takeaways and groceries, it has been claimed.
Highly-trained protection staff have also allegedly been seen buying food from an organic delicatessen, a favourite of Meghan’s, and picking up coffees from fast food outlet Tim Hortons.
A team of 15 guards has been flown to guard the couple and their nine-month-old son Archie at their secluded Canadian bolthole, after they stood back from royal duties.
The Duke and Duchess’s security is estimated to cost taxpayers in Canada and the UK between £3million and £6million a year, as staff work round the clock two weeks at a time.
A royal security source told The Sun on Sunday: ‘While the guys are happy to be out there doing the jobs, there is a feeling they are carrying out menial tasks, like picking up takeaways and groceries.’
