Michael Jackson’s former bodyguard has claimed that Duchess Meghan’s security team will be increased over the next months, Express.co.uk has reported.
After Harry and Meghan announced the baby news, the Duchess has been in the spotlight even more. The Palace revealed that the baby is due in Spring 2019.
According to Matt Fiddes, who is a security expert, because of her condition, Meghan is more at risk.
“I witnessed it with Michael Jackson’s children everyone will fight to get a picture of that baby bump because that child will go down in history.
“That’s what happened in Australia and Fiji. It is more dangerous now that she is pregnant for sure.
“I know paparazzi and they can be so tough when they want to get something. There have been instances where they have knocked people over.”
Meghan’s visit to the market in Fiji as part of the Royal tour was cut short amid a “security issue”. It was originally planned for her to spend around 15 minutes meeting the female vendors and discussing their entrepreneurial work. But, she was escorted from the market after around seven minutes because of concerns about the size of the crowds who showed up to see her.
Fiddes thinks that it was handled well, but according to him “They should have made the announcement after returning from Australia because it just ended up making the crowds even crazier.”
When asked if Meghan’s security will be increased, he explained: “They will 100 percent hire more security for Meghan, I have seen it with other celebrities.
“As they become more and more pregnant, there will always be more demand. She will restrict her Royal engagements and increase her security massively.”
According to Fiddes when Harry and Meghan come out of the hospital to introduce their baby to the public “there will be more security than at any other Royal births”.
“Even more security than there was when Kate was first pictured with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Meghan is the person who is going to give birth to the most famous Royal child that has ever been in years.”
Kensington Palace still hasn’t commented.
