Elizabeth II intends to strip Prince Harry of his military titles in favor of his brother, the Duke of Cambridge William.
A decision to this effect was taken by the Queen a week ago, reports Express. The reason for the refusal of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to return home and continue the royal service. About a year ago, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle went to the United States to do business there.
The situation was exacerbated by the couple’s recent statement. In response to Elizabeth’s words about depriving them of their right to officially represent the royal court and perform the associated honorary duties, her grandson Harry replied that no one has the right to deprive him of his service to the British people.
Princess Diana’s youngest son may now lose the titles of honorary commander of the Royal Air Force unit, Rear Admiral of the Small Craft Group and the title of Major General of the Marines. Elizabeth is expected to hand them over to Prince Harry’s brother-in-law.
