Prince Harry’s military roles are only “on ice” at the moment, according to a royal commentator. Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk why the restoration of the Duke of Sussex’s titles would “mean a lot to him”. The former working royal had them removed as part of his and Meghan Markle’s deal with the Queen when they were organising an exit from the Royal Family.
Mr Fitzwilliams told this website: “Firstly the deal will be reviewed before the end of next March.
“That’s all we know so far.
“The Sussexes are now making their own way and are self-sufficient financially.
“So to what extent that will change the intentions simply isn’t clear.”

He continued: “I do think it’s right to bring up Harry’s military links.
“All these roles are significant, particularly Captain General of the Royal Marines.
“He’s also seen active service twice in Afghanistan.
“He’s also been responsible for the Invictus Games.”
A review of the couple’s negotiations with the Royal Family is due to take place in spring 2021.
Prince Harry lost three of his titles: Captain General of the Royal Marines, Honorary Air Force Commandant of the Royal Air Force Base Honington, and Honorary Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Naval Commands’ Small Ships and Diving.
According to ‘Finding Freedom’, the unauthorised biography about Harry and Meghan’s time as senior royals, this was his biggest disappointment of the exit.
A source told the authors it was a “tough pill to swallow” and the one that has been the most painful for Meghan to witness him go through.
Meghan reportedly told a friend it was so unnecessary as it was not just taking away something from him, but from the entire military and veteran community.
