The Duke of Sussex keeps his honorary titles close to his heart and wants to spend more time in the UK in future, the Telegraph reported. When he quit royal duties, he was forced to also give up on the role of Captain General Royal Marines among other honours.
A friend of the Duke’s told the Telegraph the Queen’s grandson was determined to retain his military links in the upcoming one-year review of the Megxit deal.
The source said: “His military work is one of the most important things to him. Of course he wants to keep them.”
A royal commentator said the military titles could be a key point in the forthcoming discussions between the Duke and senior members of the Royal Family.
Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk the “important” military appointments could be subject to changes.
He said: “What you’re looking at is a possible discussion of Harry’s military titles.
“Those military links are very important to him.
“Also they’ll clarify what, if any, his position would be at next year’s Remembrance Day. I think that will be important because of all the reports about a wreath.”
As part of the changes brought on by the couple’s newfound independence, HeirPod host Omid Scobie and ABC News foreign correspondent Maggie Rulli claimed Harry and Meghan will “throw themselves into” fighting against “powerful leaders” that other royals have been “far too afraid” to do.
According to the commentators, the Duke and the Duchess are “unafraid” to “tackle issues” that we have not traditionally seen royals do before.
Mr Scobie told listeners: “We’ve seen the efforts that they’ve made to take on some of the issues that just exist more locally here in the UK when it comes to our tabloid press.
“They’ve really become quite unafraid to take on those media titans.
“Many figures, including most of the Royal Family, are usually far too afraid to ever try and challenge. I think at this point they clearly feel quite emboldened to tackle these issues.”
