The Irish Taxpayer Spent Nearly 300,000 Euro Guarding Prince Harry And Meghan Markle
The money was spent during their visit in July 2018
But that pales in comparison to the 24 million euro that was spent protecting his grandmother Queen Elizabeth in 2011.
The Sunday Independent reports that the State paid out nearly 3 million euro to guard US vice-president Mike Pence in September, while it cost 11 million euro to protect the President Donald Trump during his visit last June.
An Garda Siochana released the figures for the four visits over the past decade, saying the expenditure relates to salaries, wages, allowances, travel, subsistence and incidental expenses.
