“It boils down to essentially Prince Harry, believing that he's entitled to all of the perks and privileges of royalty without any of the obligations and responsibility," commentator Rafe Heydel-Mankoo told GB News.
“It's also actually worth pointing out that this is Prince Harry taking his father's government to court. And that's completely without precedent, we’ve never seen a royal do anything like this," he continued.
“Prince Harry is alleging that he's been treated unfairly, that he's been singled out," Heydel-Mankoo stated. "The Home Office is quite clear and refutes that and says, you are no longer a working member of the royal family and therefore your security status must be downgraded.”
“One of the reasons we’ve heard was because he didn't think that the security would be sufficient for him, but it was fine for the President of France," the historian noted. "They made no complaints about that. The First Lady of America didn't have any problems with security."
“For some reason, Harry thinks that he's a special case. And he has to realize, of course, that he's no longer as important as he once was," he added.

Heydel-Mankoo later pointed out how Harry's role within the monarchy molded his perception of it.
“He's suffering from that problem of younger brothers being second in line to the throne at one point, now he's fifth in line to the throne. He's not that important," he concluded.

"RAVEC does consider (Harry's) position when he comes to GB," Eadie penned in his submission. "That does not mean he should be considered in the same way as he would be if he were resident in GB at all times."
