Queen urged to strip Prince Harry’s military titles – ‘Can’t lead from California!’ | Royal | News (Reports)


Readers voted in our poll on whether the monarch should strip her grandson – who is now living in California with wife Meghan Markle – of his forces appointments, including Captain-General of the Royal Marines. A huge 92 percent of respondents said yes, compared to just eight percent who thought the Duke of Sussex should keep the titles.

Commenting on the poll, one reader insisted: “He should be stripped of all titles.”

Another agreed: “Strip all his titles. He doesn’t deserve any.”

A third posted: “You can’t lead the troops from California. So, his titles must pass to someone who can lead the troops.”

Another added: “Sadly, Harry is no longer a working colleague of our treasured ‘Firm’ so should quietly ride off into the Californian sunset.”

A fifth blasted: “He has got to learn that living in the real world that you can not have your cake and eat it.”

Another fumed: “He walked away from a lifetime commitment – what can he expect. OK, he wanted a different life – & we accept this. But there is NO RETURN.”

One more wrote: “It’s only fair. If you want to be a royal, you have the obligations and commitments that go with it.

“If you step away and reject being a royal, you walk away from those commitments and obligations… but you also lose the perks and privileges that come with it too.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced bombshell plans to step back as senior royals in January 2020.

Harry and Meghan carried out a final round of engagements before ending royal duties in March.

It was agreed there would be a 12-month review of the Megxit arrangements to leave the door open to a return to the royal fold.

But the Sussexes are pushing ahead with new careers in America which include lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify. They have also bought an £11 million mansion in Montecito.

The review will have to deal with what happens to Harry’s honorary military titles, which were put on hold for a year.

Prince William and Princess Anne have been suggested as possible names to take on the roles.

Harry, who served in Afghanistan, is said to have been left saddened when his request for a wreath to be left at the Cenotaph on his behalf on Remembrance Sunday was rejected in November.
