Are Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Aware Of Their Security Staff's Background?

According to Mirror UK, Daobry was photographed driving Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from Frogmore Cottage to Euston station this month. A source wondered how the security personnel was hired when Meghan Markle is very particular when it comes to women's issues.

"When you consider how outspoken Meghan is on women's issues it's quite amazing that a bodyguard with that sort of background has been employed. His wife Sarah went through a really traumatic time with him and I'm sure if Meghan and Harry knew the full story, they wouldn't be at all comfortable with him being employed as their bodyguard. Pere treated Sarah appallingly and she had to escape through a window twice to get away from him. I really don't think Harry and Meghan would want someone like him guarding them," the source said.

In 2019, Markle also said that men and boys should be held accountable for their actions while she was on tour in Africa.

Following the incident, Daobry's wife opened up about the harrowing experience she suffered at the hands of her husband.

"I suffered at the hands of this lunatic for two years. I am devastated he isn't behind bars. He deserves to be. For any man to do this is terrible - for a policeman to do what he did is outrageous. He nearly killed me. All he got is a slap on the wrists. What deterrent is that for other men? When I met him I was a strong, confident, capable woman. I could never have imagined being a victim of domestic violence. I was terrified, isolated, and had no one to turn to," Sarah Jay said.

According to reports, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are paying two ex-Met police officers thousands of pounds per day for their security.

However, it is unclear if one of the ex-police officers that they are paying for is Daobry.
