Prince Harry seems to have lost the opportunity of regaining his royal title as Captain-General of the Royal Marines when he openly discussed U.S. politics in a recent video.
The Duke loss the title when he officially quit as a senior royal at the end of March. Royal sources revealed that the loss was devastating for him, although Harry may still have got his title back at the end of his 12-month review, but the political speech ended it.
Prince William is ready to take over the place of Prince Harry as the new head of the Royal Marines. This has been confirmed by senior Royal Navy sources last night, anticipating the outcome of Prince Harry’s 12-month review will find “no reason to alter current arrangements”.
A royal expert has hinted that the Duke’s recent comments on the upcoming US presidential election may have contributed to the status quo.
Speaking on the plans for Prince William to become the new Captain-General of the Royal Marines, Richard Palmer, a royal correspondent said, “The headline in the paper doesn’t mention Harry but it will undoubtedly be a blow to him if this happens.
“The Sussexes’ intervention in the US presidential election, no matter how carefully worded, was deemed by palace officials to have crossed a line. It’s likely to have effects.”
Buckingham Palace said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “understand that they are required to step back from royal duties, including official military appointments.”
The decision to formally replace him will come as a blow to the Duke of Sussex, who is said to have hoped to resume his ceremonial duties soon.
