- Prince Harry has asked the UK government for police protection while in the country to avoid any risk
- The father of two even offered to pay for his own security, just as he does with the private detail
- The Duke's legal team also informed the High Court that they might seek a judicial review if he doesn't get his wishes
Prince Harry has threatened to take legal action against the British government if it does not provide security for him and his family while in the UK.
According to Page Six, the Prince - who stepped away from his royal duties, said in a statement that his family is unsafe in England.
Per his statement, Harry even offered to pay for the security, just like he does for the private detail he hires when he travels to his motherland.
His lawyers claimed in the statement that more protection was needed during his stay as his family has been subjected to well-documented threats.

High court put on notice
Harry's lawyers are reported to have put the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court on notice in September 2021 on his legal team seeking a judicial review if the government does not provide what his demands.
This also includes protection for his wife Megan Markle and children Archie and Lilibet.
The statement also discloses that the duke was willing to pay for his and his family's security in January 2020 At Sandringham, an offer that was denied.
Harry does not want to impose the payments on the British taxpayers.
His legal team says Harry's security was compromised during his last UK visit in July 2021 due to a lack of police protection.
The Prince feels that he and his family will be at "too great personal risk" with a lack of ample security.
Break cycle of pain
Last year, Harry opened up about why he decided to move from England to the US.
According to Harry, it was the best choice he could make in his quest to break the cycle of family pain.
Although he does not blame his dad, Prince Charles, for anything, he was determined to raise his son and daughter differently.
"When it comes to parenting, if I've experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I'm going to make sure that I break that cycle," said Harry in a podcast interview with 'Armchair Expert' Dax Shaphard.
