Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly facing security issues in their new home in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, a former protection officer, who has previously worked for the British royal family has some advice for the couple.

Speaking with Insider, Simon Morgan, who is now Director of Operations and Training at the private security firm Trojan Consultancy, believes that the security company that the Sussexes have reportedly hired will be able to help them overcome their security issues.

"Gavin De Becker is an LA-based firm, well known for occupying A-listers," Morgan told the publication. "They will operate slightly differently from what the Sussexes would have been previously used to. They aren't operating on an official level, and therefore they won't have all of the assistance you would usually get when protecting senior members of the royal family," he added.

Morgan, who served the royal family from 2007 to 2013, is familiar with threats the royals face on a daily basis.

"Their new team will be picking things up as they go along. It's a massive change, without a doubt. And certainly, from the duke's perspective, many of those royal protection officers were with him for many years," he added. "They have a great understanding for him as a person, his position, and all of his circles, which has effectively gone overnight."

The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex are apparently residing in a well-secured gated community of LA and they share the neighbourhood with the likes of Elton John and Adele.

Meanwhile, it is believed that Prince Harry is leaning on his elder brother Prince William for some advice as he struggles to adjust to new life, according to Us Weekly. As per the report, the Duke of Cambridge is concerned about his brother's "well being and safety." The two of them are now on talking terms and are said to be keeping in touch over the phone.

Previously, royal commentator Katie Nicholl told ET Online that Prince Charles' sons are now on the path of reconciliation after resolving "some quite major rifts in the relationship." She assured that things between the brothers have become better and they are staying in touch through phone calls.
