Prince Harry Stripped of Royal Titles
Prince Harry expressed “great sadness” that he and his wife Meghan being stripped of their royal titles as part of a historic separation settlement with the Queen.
But he said he saw no other way out but to give up his royal role in search of “a more peaceful life” with his American former actress wife and baby son Archie.
“It brings me great sadness that it has come to this,” Harry told supporters of his Africa-based charity in London. His emotional first remarks since the separation were aimed at calming a crisis that has shaken the very foundations of Britain’s ancient monarchy.
Harry also confessed to some trepidation at taking the momentous step of resigning from daily duties and charting a new life abroad.
He said he had always been ready lose the public money that supported his lavish lifestyle but admitted it pained him to have to give up the military titles and patronages he was awarded after serving two tours in Afghanistan with the British Army.
“We are taking a leap of faith — thank you for giving me the courage to take this next step,” he said.
The “Megxit” crisis began on January 8 when the couple’s plans to seek a “progressive new role” in North America were announced without Queen Elizabeth II’s royal assent.
“I know I haven’t always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option,” Harry said.
She will milk the golden goose for several years of wealth and fame before kicking Harry to the curb. It's a classic gold digger play.
