The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry was defeated in London’s High Court on Tuesday as his team was unable to secure him and his family police protection when they are in England.

Harry was challenging the decision to withdraw his police protection after he stepped down as a working royal.

The judge, Mr. Justice Chamberlain, denied a legal bid by the duke to review the decision not to allow him to pay for police protection out of his funds.

A separate legal effort to review the original decision to strip him of taxpayer-funded protection is ongoing.

This legal case is one of several ongoing lawsuits that Prince Harry is undertaking in the UK. He is expected to return to London next month to testify in a separate trial regarding phone-hacking claims against the Mirror Newspaper Group (MNG).
