Connor Newberry started this petition to Prince Harry and

On the 8th of January 2020 Henry Charles Albert David Windsor, Duke of Sussex announced he was stepping back from his role as a senior royal, and the last strand of his already tenuous entitlement to public funds was cut.

I respect his decision to work towards a future where he is financially independent from the Crown (AKA the people of the United Kingdom). I believe as a first step towards financial independence he should pay restitution to me in the form of the 10 pence which I contributed to renovating his two homes, Frogmore Cottage and Kensington Palace. They came in at costs of £2.4 million and £4 million respectively, adding up to a total of £6.4 million from the public purse towards the cause of giving Harry a place that he could call home.

If Harry repays the ten pence which he owes me I will donate it in his name to the social business Social Bite, which is working to end homelessness in Scotland. They do amazing work and provide over 140,000 items of food and hot drinks every year to Scotland’s most vulnerable people. In May 2018 Social Bite launched the Social Bite Village which provides safe accommodation for people experiencing homelessness. Imagine what £6.4 million could do there.

The Royal Family is an old and tired institution. The distribution of public funds to the ludicrous and obscene excess with which they live while there are people living on the streets is all but unforgivable. To quote John Bradford, "There but for the grace of God go I", but the least he can do is give me back my ten pence.
