Meghan Markle has hired Kim Kardashians former elite bodyguard

Meghan Markle has reportedly hired Kim Kardashian’s former bodyguard.

The former working royal was pictured walking with her security team after her husband Prince Harry attended his father The King’s Coronation.

She was snapped hiking near the couple’s Montecito mansion, followed by the beefy security guard who could cost them more than $1,800 per day.

Meghan’s mammoth minder is thought to have worked for Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kim, 42, way back in 2016.

The burley bodyguard reportedly worked for the family both before and after she was robbed at gunpoint for $7million worth of jewellery in Paris.

According to The Sun, Meghan’s new protection was “pulled from a small pool of elite bodyguards”.

Another of Kim’s former bodyguards, Steve Stanulis, told the outlet: “These are guys who come from either police or military backgrounds.

“Usually if a guy is good enough to work for high-profile stars, it’s not unusual for them to be sought-after. Not only for protection, but also for clout. It looks good.”

He added: “Kim’s security will be paramount. It’s no different for Harry and Meghan — they are world-famous and equally as vulnerable.”

Harry and Meghan famously fired Alberto Alvarez, 46, who was Michael Jackson’s former minder.

He was one of several bodyguards the couple, living in America with their children Archie, four, and Lilibet, 23 months, have hired over the years.

The pair’s taxpayer-funded security was stopped in 2020 when they left the Royal Family.

Meghan’s new guard is thought to be employed by TorchStone Global, a firm which could be demanding almost $2,000 per day.

“Meghan and Harry have used a lot of different close protection personnel,” a source told The Sun. “There have been some stresses based on concerns they have expressed.” has contacted Meghan’s representative for comment.
