Prince Harry now pays for his own security and entourage bill

The English website has it that Harry’s security and entourage bill is now being footed by the Duke of Sussex himself as Charles abruptly stopped providing his son with financial support. A royal finance expert said the Duke would have to "generate a lot of income" in order to cover the total costs of the bill.

According to the publication, David McClure was speaking to the ITV documentary Harry and William: What Went Wrong?. McClure is quoted by Express:

"One of the biggest things Harry had to give up when he stopped being a working royal was someone paying for his security. Now it's been estimated that his security bill every year is about £3 million pounds.
"In addition to that, he has his big entourage of people - he has lawyers, he has managers, he has PR people. The total bill for that entourage has been estimated at about £5 million pounds a year. Now that means he has to generate a lot of income."
