Prince Harry Was Emotional Over Losing His Honorary Military Ranks While Leaving the Royal Family

Prince Harry had a lot of military honorary ranks when he was in the royal family.

However, when he and wife, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, left their senior royal lives behind, the 35-year-old Duke of Sussex also lost the titles as well.

According to a report, via the “Finding Freedom” autobiography says that Harry was pained over the loss of them, and Meghan in turn was heartbroken on her husband’s behalf.

“The most demoralizing aspect of the new deal was his being stripped of his honorary military appointments that had been awarded to him as a senior royal,” authors and royal experts Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand wrote, via Marie Claire U.K.

They added, “As a retired serviceman, Harry would always be able to wear his medals, but no longer could he wear uniform as 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 Navy’s Small Ships and Diving Operations.”

An insider told the authors that the decision was “the one that made Harry emotional” as well as “the most painful to Meghan to witness him go through.”

Just recently, it was revealed that Harry and Meghan‘s young son, Archie, likes to do this!
