Prince Harry and Meghan Markle won't be receiving government-funded protection after their reported move to California, President Trump warned Sunday. They had no intention of asking for it in the first place, a spokesperson for the couple tells NBC. The spokesperson says the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made privately funded security arrangements. The couple had been living in Canada, where a security arrangement partially funded by Ottawa was set to expire March 31, when they officially step down as senior royals. People reports that the couple and son Archie have been living in a "secluded compound" in Los Angeles, Meghan's hometown. Paying for security is unlikely to be a problem: The couple have an estimated net worth of $30 million, and Meghan already has a post-royal job. (More royal family stories.)
