Once Harry and Meghan Markle, 40, moved to America, it was announced that if they ever come to the U.K. to visit, they won't automatically be provided with a security team. Believing it would be too dangerous for him to ever return to his home country without protection, the dad-of-two filed for a judicial review on the matter, and on Thursday, July 7, the case kicked off in court.

According to paperwork unveiled by The Independent, some of Queen Elizabeth's aides were involved in the decision to strip Harry of his security guards — something he wasn't aware of during the initial disagreement.

Harry thinks he should have been informed about the aides' involvement, as the filing states he's long had "significant" tension with Sir Edward Young, the Queen’s private secretary.

"He should have been told so he could have considered things properly and made representations," Harry's attorney Shaheed Fatima reportedly stated. "If there had been a fair process, Ravec [Executive Committee for the Protection of Royalty and Public Figures] would or could have reached a different decision ... the role of the royal household as equal partner in the process was inappropriate."
