The Court of Appeal has now said it will hear the challenge after Harry's lawyers filed a direct application seeking permission for the prince to appeal. During his stay in the UK in February 2020, Harry began proceedings after the ministry responsible for policing revoked his right to automatic police protection.

Like other senior members of the royal family, the Duke of Sussex received full, publicly funded security until he decided to step back from his royal duties and move to California with his wife Meghan, 42, and son Archie, five. March 2020 – Daughter Lilibet (3) born in 2021 in the US. As a result, the Executive Committee for the Protection of Royals and Public Figures (RAVEC) decided in April not to give Harry the same protection as before after he ceased to be a “full-time working member of the Royal Family”.

According to Judge Sir Peter Lane, Raveck was entitled to make this decision. He also ordered Harry to pay 90 per cent of the Home Office's “reasonable costs” of defending the case. However, the total expenditure details of the government have not been disclosed.

Appeal upheld: Judge sees “real prospect of success”.

Allowing the appeal, Judge David Bean said, reports the Mirror, he “reluctantly” believed that Harry's challenge had a “real chance of success” on the basis that Ravek had not adhered to his own policy. The court also found that Sir Peter may have erred in concluding that Harry was not in a comparable position to those in “different VIP categories” receiving state protection.

In a written statement at an earlier hearing in the case, Harry described England as his “home” and “central to his children's heritage”. “My wife and I were forced to step down from this role and leave the country in 2020 with great sadness for both of us. England is my home.”

He continued: “The United Kingdom is central to my children's heritage and a place where they should feel at home just as much as where they currently live in America. “If it's not possible to protect them while they're there, it won't happen. “I can't put my wife at risk like this on British soil, and given my life experiences, I'm not prepared to put myself at unnecessary risk,” Harry said.

A request for “fair and lawful application of Ravec's rules.”

A spokesperson for Harry said at the time of the ruling that he intended to appeal: “The Duke is not asking for preferential treatment, but rather a fair and legal application of Raveke's rules to ensure he lives up to the written policy. Raveke deserves the same treatment as everyone else.
