Prince Harry

Prince Harry once wanted to give-up his royal title. But why ?


Being part of the British Royal Family has always seemed like a pretty magical way to get through life.

This is exactly why the world was so shocked to hear that, Prince Harry wanted to give up his “Royal Title” at one point in his life.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry left everyone stunned when they announced they were “stepping back” from their role as senior members of the royal family in January 2020. So, it means Harry wanted to quit his role even before his marriage. Prince Harry once revealed that he had once “wanted out” of life as part of Britain’s Royal Family”. Prince Harry said he was forced to grow up in the ‘public eye’ after losing his mother, Princess of Wales, Diana at 12.

“William and I were 14 and 12 when our mother died. Then at that time, I had to walk a long way behind her coffin. I was surrounded by thousands of people watching me while millions more did on television. I don’t think any child should be asked to do so, under any circumstances. It certainly wouldn’t happen today”.

“I should have dealt with it properly. Instead, I buried my head in the sand and let everything around me tear into pieces. I began with my search when I was in my mid-20’s. I felt I needed to fix the mistakes I was making.

Prince Harry continued by expressing

“For me, being in the army was the best escape I’ve ever had. I felt as though I was really achieving something. I have a deep understanding of all sorts of people from different backgrounds. It felt like I was part of a team. I wasn’t a Prince. I was just Harry. In 2007, I had to leave Afghanistan only a handful of weeks after arriving. As my position, there was leaked by a magazine. I felt very resentful. Once I left the army, I wasn’t sure exactly what would come next for me”.

Prince Harry considered leaving The Royal Family but decided to work on his position instead. Prince Harry said he felt he wanted out. But then decided to stay in and work out a role for himself. “We are incredibly passionate with our charities and they have been chosen because they are on the path shown to me by our mother”, said Prince Harry.
