- Reportedly chosen from the shortlist of 2 companies whose staff have guarded the stars of a list
- Experts say the bill could be £ 4 million because they need multiple bodyguards a day
- As of tomorrow, Sussexes are not working members of the royal family
Harry and Meghan reportedly hire former SAS soldiers to replace their Scotland Yard bodyguards.
They apparently chose from a shortlist of two companies whose staff have guarded stars, including Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Madonna and the Ecclestone family.
Starting tomorrow, the Sussexes will no longer be working members of the royal family as they pursue a new life and career in the US with their ten-month-old son Archie.

As the Daily Mail revealed this week, they have agreed to settle the bill for their own safety in America. Harry and Meghan were at the center of the fight over the cost to UK taxpayers to provide them with 24-hour protection from the Metropolitan Police during their new life in California.
The feud grew after President Donald Trump said Americans should not be asked to contribute. The couple decided to hire a private security team that charges around £ 400 per day per security guard, the sun reported yesterday.
Experts say their annual bill can go up to £ 4 million because they need multiple bodyguards a day. Although a spokesperson for the couple insisted that they pay the bill in person, Prince Charles can also contribute.

He has agreed to make a substantial contribution to the cost of living of his son and daughter-in-law as they “get on their feet” over the next 12 months.
Sources have warned that the money, which will come from his personal resources and not from the Duchy of Cornwall, is not “inexhaustible” and will be reviewed within a year.
Meanwhile, the royal family is determined to leave the Megxit saga behind, the Daily Mail may reveal. While there is still grief and pain at Harry and Meghan’s decision to step down as working royals and live overseas, the Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William and other senior figures believe they can no longer do the bridge the gap.
“Harry and Meghan have made their decision and it is clear that they have moved on, which is what everyone is trying to do now,” sources said. “There is a lot of work to be done, especially given the health crisis this country is currently facing.”
As of tomorrow, the Sussexes are no longer working members of the royal family. Harry and Meghan signed their social media feed in Sussex Royal, telling their 11 million followers, “Thank you to this community for the support, inspiration and shared commitment to the good in the world.”
