    So how do you escape living in a fish bowl? He's damned if he continues as a royal sucking the public tit and he's damned if he tries to leave the royalty (an archaic institution). He'll never be king whether he stays or leaves so whats the point of staying. He'll never be anything other than a pampered celebrity if he leaves so what's the point of that? He is doomed to live in a gilded cage no matter what he does.

    I've never been interested in 'the Royals', but press coverage of major events in their lives make ignoring them difficult:

    -The royal weddings are outlandish demonstrations of unearned wealth.
    -Princess Diana got a sh!tty deal and Charles was nuts to mistreat her.
    -Harry and his gold digger wife crossed the line with negative remarks about President Trump.

    I hope the ex-Royal couple lives anywhere but the USA.

    This thread is already up to 7 pages, so I didn't read all the posts.

    Why does Harry have to give up the title "Prince"? So what if he lives in Canada or Antarctica, isn't he still a Prince? I can't count how many movies and TV shows there are where a "prince" comes back from the other side of the world to "claim his title"...

    Is he "renouncing" the title? Why? Just go live his life as an extremely wealthy trust fund baby who happens to be a prince.

    Is he being forced to renounce his title?

    Also, considering how much money I assume he has (or has access to), why in the world would he makes deals with Hollywood?

    As others have posted, Meghan must be one heck of a wife....

    I believe somebody already addressed this. He will always be a prince. He is renouncing the HRH title if I understand correctly.

    given his penchant for blatant racism, I think even Von Hayes would decline his company.

    Come on. It's first class entertainment. Much better than the movies. The movies are all made up.

    Don't think any of those Royals should get government money.

    I don't think a lot of folks in this country should get free government money either. Millions do though.

    Does anyone believe that any of this was Harry's idea? She wants to get the baby to the USA so she can keep it here when they divorce.

    I read that the royal titles of prince and princess have been revoked. He is no longer Prince Harry.

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be known as Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex

    They will still be Prince and Princess, Duke and Duchess.

    “In a speech given at a dinner for supporters of the Sentebale charity in London, the Prince addressed why he and his wife, Meghan Markle, chose to relinquish their "royal highness" titles and move part-time to Canada.”

    No, he will be known as Harry, Duke of Sussex. You can not be titled Prince and not be HRH. The prince title was revoked at the same time HRH was revoked. They made it clear that the queen revoked HRH. The queen, or Charles if king, can restore the prince title and HRH when Harry returns to the UK after the divorce.

    Note: Was King Edward VIII still a king after he abdicated in 1936? No he was then Duke of Windsor as Harry is now Duke of Sussex.

    “What will they be called? - Elle
    Prince Harry and Meghan have said they will no longer use their HRH titles.

    From this spring, they will become known as Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

    Prince Harry will remain a prince, having been born one.

    The BBC has spoken.

    ETA: Edward VIII not a valid comparison. He was still a prince having been born one.

    He may remain a prince because he was born a prince he but will no longer be called Prince Harry. Instead, Duke of Sussex. Abdication has consequences.

    Bingo.

    She’s already divorcing who he is by making him step down as a Prince. That’s all he was, and she’s obviously already changed her mind on all that. So what’s left?

    Robert Plant will come up with some new lyrics from this one.

    “Although they will no longer use the "HRH" title, they will not officially be stripped of them, as Prince Harry remains a prince and is still sixth-in-line to the throne.

    The couple also retain the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex, which was bestowed upon Harry by the Queen on the day of their wedding in 2018.”

    He has not abdicated. He remains Prince Harry and if a tragic accident knocks out the other five, he will be King.
