Official Megxit: Is Harry still a prince?


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry confirmed to Elizabeth II their desire to move away from the British monarchy for good. A situation which now obliges us to wonder about the princely status of the Duke of Sussex.

The news had the effect of a wrench for the British royal family. After several weeks of negotiations, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry confirmed to Elizabeth II that they would not return as active members of the monarchy, as a press release from Buckingham Palace stated.

By this decision, the Duchess and the Duke of Sussex, now settled in the United States, lost all the titles they had acquired. A situation which now obliges us to ask a question: Does Harry keep his status of prince? Yes, according to royalty experts.

Indeed, the 36-year-old remains a prince by birth. A state of affairs that will not change whatever he decides. However, the brother of Prince William loses all his military titles to which he was very attached, as well as his royal patronage.

Nevertheless, his links with the United Kingdom have not been severed. “As evidenced by their work over the past year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service in the United Kingdom and throughout the world,” Buckingham Palace said.

Prince Harry, ready to return to the United Kingdom?

Above all, Harry stands ready if his grandfather, Prince Philip, becomes seriously ill or even dies. Indeed, the husband of Elizabeth II was again hospitalized as a precautionary measure. The stay, which was supposed to be short according to the British Crown, was extended by several days.

Despite their differences, the Duke of Sussex remained very attached to the Duke of Edinburgh, and had even planned to return to the United Kingdom for his 100th birthday. An occasion that one hopes will be possible.
