Prince Harry stripped of His Royal Highness’s title

Buckingham Palace has been accused of delivering a ‘brutal reality check’ to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Prince Harry was stripped of the title “His Royal Highness” on the royal website three years after stepping back.

The term HRH has been removed from references to the Duke since he and Meghan, decided to “step back as ‘senior’ members” of the Royal family in January 2020. Royal expert Richard Kay described the move as ‘brutal’ – and speculated it wasn’t a coincidence that it occurred as Prince Harry jetted off to Tokyo.

Writing for the Daily Mail, he opined: “For it was surely no coincidence that the Prince’s arrival in the Far East coincided with the brutal reality check administered by Buckingham Palace about his status — and that of his wife, Meghan — in the new‑look Royal Family.”

Following the removal, BP said there are over five thousand pages on the site and these are having to be “revisited and updated periodically”, particularly in light of the death of Queen Elizabeth II last September.

A spokesperson added: “Some content may be out of date until this process is complete.”

But Mr Kay said sources close to the royals are furious at ‘sustained’ attacks from Harry and Meghan.

He wrote: “A visceral bitterness persists at the sustained attacks that Harry and Meghan have waged against family members through his memoir and their various television interviews.

“In such a highly charged atmosphere, there was resentment that elements of the Duke and Duchess’s previous lives were allowed to remain unaltered, as though they were still somehow part of ‘the Firm’.

“One reason there was no push for a change was because the late Queen Elizabeth wanted to ensure that anything her grandson might interpret as a snub or the slamming of a royal door was avoided.”

The site continued to refer to King Charles’ youngest son as HRH until the error was corrected over the weekend.

That’s despite an official statement from January 18 2020 stating: “The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family.”

The site also made tweaks to Meghan’s bio, as it previously slated how ‘after university, Her Royal Highness worked as an actress’.

It now reads: ‘After university, she worked as an actress.’

A later passage relating how ‘Her Royal Highness also wrote and edited a lifestyle website’ has been changed to ‘the duchess also wrote and edited a lifestyle website’.

The position of Harry’s landing page on the Firm’s site has also been moved down and now falls below working members. Harry and Meghan’s pages are now placed side by side below the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Alexandra.

Prince Andrew – who was forced to step back from his duties following his car crash interview on News Night in November 2019 – has also seen his profile relegated to the bottom of the page.

The Duke of Sussex was spotted at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport today ahead of an appearance at the ISPS Sports Values Summit-Special Edition last week.

Police lapel videos captured the moments a couple was detained by Las Vegas SWAT officers during a nighttime raid at a home in July in connection with the cold case killing of rapper Tupac Shakur.

The 24 heavily redacted videos obtained Thursday by The Associated Press do not provide a view into the home or identify the couple, whose faces were blurred from view as the officers shouted commands to “come out with your hands up and your hands empty!” Read More
