Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year. One royal expert believed that the tell-all may have encouraged more attacks against the royal family.
Meghan Markle And Prince Harry's Oprah Interview Affecting The Royal Family's Security?
Richard Eden weighed in on the royal family's security after an intruder threatened to kill the Queen on Christmas Day. According to the Daily Mail Diary Editor, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview where they alleged that the royal family is racist may have subjected them to more risk of being attacked.
"I genuinely worry that Prince Harry and #Meghan's criticism of unnamed 'racist' royals has increased the danger of attacks on the #Royal Family. Security needs to be stepped up as a result," he tweeted.
Eden's post received mixed responses. Some agreed with him while others argued. One said she has no sympathy for the royal family after taking away Prince Harry and Markle's security.
Another defended the royal family saying, only the working royals are entitled to the publicly funded security. Since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down from their royal duties, they have to shoulder their security.

Intruder Threatened To Kill Queen Elizabeth On Christmas Day
The Queen decided to spend the holidays in Windsor Castle. On Christmas day, a 19-year-old man broke into Her Majesty's estate.
In the footage obtained by The Sun, a masked person with a crossbow introduced himself as Jaswant Singh Chail. He also threatened to "assassinate" the Queen.
"I'm sorry. I'm sorry for what I've done and what I will do. I will attempt to assassinate Elizabeth, queen of the royal family. This is revenge for those who have died in the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre," the man said in a distorted voice. He referred to the Massacre of Amritsar in India on April 19, 1919. The British troops killed 379 unarmed protesters and wounded around 1,200 individuals.
"It is also revenge for those who have been killed, humiliated and discriminated [against] because of their race," the suspect added. "I'm an Indian Sikh, a Sith. My name was Jaswant Singh Chail, my name is Darth Jones."
The man was already arrested and sectioned under the Mental Health Act. He is already under the care of medical professionals, according to the police.
