Prince Harry will “understand” the log of his new A-list of bodyguards thanks to his royal upbringing and military background, the security expert reveals – but Meghan has to stick to the limits.
- The couple hired a security team called “Secret Service for Famous People.”
- They are believed to pay £ 7,000 a day for their protection
- Celebrity security expert said Harry would be used to the bodyguard’s protocol
- Meghan Markle must adhere to the ‘limits’ that the team sets
Prince Harry will be familiar with the requirements of his new personal security team for £ 7,000 a day thanks to his royal upbringing and military training, said a prominent bodyguard.
35-year-old Harry and 38-year-old Meghan Markle, who live with their son Archie in the villa of Hollywood tycoon Tyler Perry in Los Angeles, have used the services of a company that is also owned by a number of A-Listeners , including Jeff Bezos and Tom Hanks.
The team that watches the Royals in LA was probably selected by Gavin de Becker, 65, a former chief of security for President Ronald Reagan. The de Becker team is said to have been deployed to protect Perry’s eight bedroom villa.
In a conversation today with The Times, well-known security expert Will Geddes, whose London-based international corporate protection protects musicians, businesspeople and kings around the world, said he anticipates de Becker officials will have few problems with Harry – but Meghan needs to be aware of limits.

He said: ‘I never protected Harry, but I came across him. He is very charming and nice, and as a former military, he would understand and accept certain protocols and there would be mutual respect.
“What you don’t want is Meghan – whom I’ve never met – who asks her boys to pick up their rice milk from the Whole Foods on the street. As long as limits are kept, there should be no problems. ‘
De Becker’s GDBA claims to protect thousands of customers and boasts of working with the CIA and the FBI. Michael J Fox once called the company “Secret Service for Famous People.”
A nameless Hollywood insider told the newspaper: “De Becker is an advertising friend and he is the bodyguard du jour. He will already provide security for all of Harry and Meghan’s prominent friends who said,” Oh, Gavin is the best. ”
But such care is not cheap. Harry and Meghan de Becker are believed to be paying £ 7,000 a day for security, or the equivalent of £ 2.5 million a year.
It is unclear who will pay for the security bill, although friends of the Sussex family claimed last week that the couple would pay out of pocket for protection.
A security expert said Meghan should be aware of the limits set by the security team. In the picture, Meghan was led out of a Fijian market by her then police protection officer (left) and the local security authority (right) after the engagement had become a “security risk”.
The friends also claimed that the couple are protected by a private security team that is already deployed to Tyler Perry’s Los Angeles mansion.
De Becker is said to be close friends with Oprah Winfrey, the moderator of the chat show, who is also a confidante of Meghan.
The safety of Harry and Meghan has been the subject of much debate after an insider told the Daily Mail last week that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could only afford to pay their £ 2.4m bill back to Frogmore Cottage after Prince Charles agreed on foot their astronomical security bills in the United States.
However, a friend of the couple later claimed that the Sussexes would in future pay for all security measures out of their own pockets.
According to the anonymous source, the couple did not request special treatment for their security situation and did not receive any.
