Prince Harry explains his abdication from Royal duties and loss of HRH title

Britain’s Prince Harry the Duke of Sussex, explains his abdication from Royal duties and loss of HRH title

The British Prince, Prince Harry the Duke of Sussex used his platform at the British-African trade and commerce summit in London to make an emotional and very personal speech about his abdication from Royal duties and loss of HRH title.

The Prince has a review in 12 months time, where it will be possible to reverse the current changes.

Prince Harry has given up his Royal duties and titles to move to Canada with his Canadian actress wife to attempt to carve out an independent corporate career and to allow his wife to return to Hollywood.

This move doe not allow for greater privacy, in fact without the protections of the British Royal Family and UK media laws, he is likely to come under greater public scrutiny. However, Harry and Meghan will be allowed much greater freedoms in terms of their personal careers and life choices.

Although there has been much speculation and several formal press releases regarding the subject this is the first time that Harry has released a very personal and emotional speech regarding the topic.

The Prince opens his speech stating that he is talking “not as a Prince or a Duke but as Harry.”

At moments in his monologue he appears to blame the Press and Media for his decision claiming “the media is a powerful force.”

After his speech Harry and British PM Boris Johnson has an unofficial private meeting in a closed room above the venue in the Docklands, East London.

Neither Boris nor Harry had any aids, advisors or other persons present in the meeting. It is not known what was discussed.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
