It seems not a day goes by without some story in the papers concerning Prince Harry and here is another one, from a bloggers point of view it is the gift that keeps on giving.
The latest episode in this long running saga is that Canada will not be paying for protection for Harry and Megan as they are no longer members of the Royal family.
Unfortunately for Harry and Megan they have chosen to leave the Royal family and join the ranks of the independently wealthy who one assumes have to pay for their own security, as the old saying goes, “you’ve made your bed now you’re going to have to lay in it.”
Let’s hope they manage to find a sensible way to earn a substantial some of money as I imagine the cost of security would be quite substantial, judging by the photo I found the bill for sunglasses alone must be fairly hefty.
About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin
I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent.
Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work.
I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise.
I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013.
My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie.
I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes.
I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage.
My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.
I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1

I am enjoying your Harry updates.
Thank you, although I wish the fellow would stop giving me the opportunity!
Fed up with seeing so many stories about them Joe. Her dad has come out the woodwork again and no doubt step sister will follow suit. MM will learn the hard way it doesn’t pay to push The Firm.
I think our government was just clarifying it for the Canadians who were upset about paying the bill, but my gut feeling is that Harry and Megan did not expect Canada to pay for their security anyway. I suspect they will just have a quiet life here after the initial interest wears off.
Sadly I very much doubt that especially when they seem to be advised by Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb.
Like many others, I doubt that any of this would have happened had Prince Harry married English stock, someone who understood duty and how the system works. And who was unlikely to become homesick.
Prince William and Catherine, with three children appear to have the job under control.
With or without the title HRH, Harry is still a royal prince by birth, and for that reason he is in need of protection, he may not be carrying out royal duties but he will never be an ordinary young man. Perhaps the family, the ‘firm’ should foot the bill.
I don’t know how she managed to make such a mess of it after all she passed the audition how hard can it be. The part of Princess isn’t that taxing and shouldn’t have stretched her acting abilities and at the beginning I thought she was going to be excellent. I don’t wish to appear cruel but I don’t think the firm should pay they didn’t ask them to leave, Harry and Megan made that decision.
I agree about the acting and I see where you’re coming from, but he’s been given protection all his life and not because he worked for the firm but because of his birth. 🙂
Isn’t having your protection paid for by the firm one of the perks of the job and therefore if you leave the firm you have to pick up the tab yourself? Perhaps I’m being too harsh.
I think it’s a birthright, Joe. He’s the son of the heir to the throne and as such is vulnerable.
I see your point that he’s the son to the heir to the throne and is vulnerable but he chose to walk away from that part of his life. Having said that I expect we will end up paying anyway!
I think Charles will pay.
Yes, that makes sense.
I wonder if perhaps Harry: The Decline and Fall, is car-crash interesting because it was all so very predictable? We have a few cat-spats more and then the divorce to pore over yet. I feel sorry for him – in a way – but I can’t decide whether he is uber-naive, uber-trapped or both!
I would like to think it will have a happy ending with them both finding a place and a purpose in the world that suits them and then live happily ever after but I suppose that only happens in fairy stories.
