He is the son of UKís head of state. Kidnapping or killing him is a valuable but despicable ransom tool. When Prince Edward (David) tried to go to the WWI front, the government was aghast at the potential of him being a Prisoner of War. The government was equally worried about Harry in the Middle East. The protection isnít for the individual child but rather for the sovereignís peace of mind and her Governmentís integrity by not being subject to extortion. Once Charles is Rex, that excuse, of course, vanishes.
Now I realize what I just stated has lots of holes in it. But I offer it only by way of counterpoint. I think Anne (and maybe the Wessexes) only have PPI while on duty. But one unlucky SOB found out the hard way never, ever mess with Anne.
