Harry and Meghan had two intruder scares in 12 days: report
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have recently had a series of security issues at their sprawling California mansion, including two reported intruders in as many weeks, according to a police call report.
Santa Barbara police records obtained by The Sun show there have been six security alerts in the past 14 months at the Montecito home where the Duke and Duchess live with their two young children.
More worryingly, just a few months ago two cases of the feared intruder were reported in a 12-day period, the British newspaper said.
The first was May 19 at 5.44pm – the couple’s birthday – which was listed as “trespassing”, “property crimes” and “suspicious circumstances”, the Sun said.
Less than two weeks later, the same alerts were used after an intrusion alert at 3.21pm on May 31, just hours before the exiled royals took a private jet back to Britain to mark the Jubilee platinum from Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, the paper says.
During that call, the couple’s security team had asked for “documents on an intruder who left”, the police log reportedly said.
Before the most recent call logs appeared, the Sussexes were known to have dealt with at least one intruder before, when a man was caught entering it on Christmas Eve 2020. He was escorted and warned not to return.
Although the recent appeals do not appear to have resulted in any serious incidents, they come after Harry launched legal action in the UK demanding the right to police protection if he travels to his former country of origin. ‘origin.
“Perhaps Harry should focus more on safety in California rather than complaining about his safety in Britain,” Harry’s biographer Angela Levin told The Sun.
“After two intrusion alerts in 12 days, he should surely make protecting his family in the United States his top priority,” she said.
