Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Explain How Tyler Perry Helped Them After the Royal Family Removed Their Security

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are opening up about having no protection.

During their interview with Oprah, the couple talked about moving away from England and having their security stripped away from them.

The two moved to Canada in early 2020 with their son Archie, 1, just before the pandemic lock down occurred.

“While we were in Canada, in someone else’s house, I then got told, short notice, that security was going to be removed,” Harry recalled. “At this point, everyone knew, thanks to the Daily Mail, our exact location.”

“So suddenly it dawned on me, ‘Hang on, the borders could be closed, we’re going to have our security removed, who knows how long lockdown is going to be, the world knows where we are, it’s not safe, it’s not secure, we probably need to get out of here,’” Harry said.

At that time, Harry said that they had their U.K. security with them in Canada. He then said that their [the institution's] justification behind removing their security was because of a “change in status,” since they weren’t “official working parts” of the Royal family.

Luckily, the couple’s close friend Tyler Perry stepped in and was able to let Harry, Meghan, and Archie live at one of homes in California, and was able to provide them with his own security.

Meghan said that it was able to give them a moment “to breathe” as they tried to figure out their next step.

Tyler Perry made sure his vote in the Georgia runoff elections counted.

The 51-year-old filmmaker actually flew to the state of Georgia to cast his vote after he didn’t receive his absentee ballot.

“All right, my absentee ballot never came, so I just left voting in person, so y’all get out and vote, get out and vote, get out and vote,” he told fans in a video on Twitter.

The New York Times added to his video, sharing that Tyler hoped on a “flight from Wyoming to Georgia late Monday to vote in person” just ahead of the polls opening on Tuesday, January 5.
