Harry will never forgive ‘hate-filled’ Charles decision to strip military titles

Prince Harry will "never forgive" King Charles after the monarch made the "hate-filled" decision to strip him of his honorary military titles, according to a royal expert.

The Duke of Sussex, who served two tours in Afghanistan in his youth, held multiple titles including commodore-in-chief of small ships and diving, honorary air commandant of RAF Honington and captain general of the Royal Marines.

However, his father removed the honours when Harry officially stepped down from royal duties, a move author of Our King: The Man and the Monarch Revealed Robert Jobson said the prince wasn't happy about.

"He hates the idea that he is not captain general of the Royal Marines… and he hates the fact that he’s lost all these positions," Jobson told True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat on Monday (September 5).

"If he’d been in the Royal Family, and not gone down this path, I think he’d have been hugely beneficial to the country, and he could have done even more."

Harry's titles were awarded to him by his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

However, Harry sensationally quit the Royal Family in January 2020 alongside wife Meghan Markle, with the pair even leaving the UK behind in favour of Montecito, California.

Shortly afterwards his father made the drastic choice to remove the accolades.

And although several years have passed, Jobson said the move is still a sensitive subject for Harry, and something he may not ever forgive his father for.

Harry and Meghan are still clinging onto their royal titles, although "His Royal Highness" was quietly dropped from the Duke's name on the Royal Family's official website.

The Sussexes were also moved down the pecking order of royals towards the bottom of the family's main page, sitting just above Prince Andrew.

Jobson also noted Harry and the disgraced Duke of York were made to wear civilian clothes at the Queen's funeral last September, while working members of the Firm donned military uniform for the sombre occasion.

And while it seems royal tensions are at an all-time high, Harry is due back in the UK today (September 7) to make an appearance at the WellChild awards.

It is thought he will stay in the UK on Friday, which marks the one-year anniversary since the Queen passed away aged 96, before jetting off to Dusseldörf for the 2023 Invictus Games.

Harry isn't expected to visit with any of his royal relatives during his flying visit to Britain.
