Prince Harry's lawyer says the Queen's aide helped the UK government

The Duke of Sussex's lawyer appeared in court on Thursday to apply

for a judicial review over a government decision that stripped him of

publicly-funded police protection while in the UK.

Prince Harry's lawyer argued during the hearing at London's High Court that the

decision was unfair because the Queen's private secretary and most senior aide,

Edward Young, had been involved — despite the prince being told it would be up to an independent committee.

Harry's team also referenced tensions between the duke and Young.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex gave up their right to taxpayer-

funded security when they stepped back from royal duties in the spring of 2020.
