Meghan Markle news: Prince Harry looks 'utterly miserable' as he misses 'a life of duty' with Royal Family | The Sun

October 5, 2022

PRINCE Harry appears "utterly miserable' after he quit the Royal Family – with an author saying he looks like he misses "his life of duty".

The Duke of Sussex's great-granduncle King Edward had "sad eyes" following his abdication as monarch to wed Wallis Simpson – and some think Harry show similar signs after leaving in 2020 with wife Meghan Markle.

Speaking at the Henley Literary Festival, biographer Hugo Vickers said: “As for members of the Royal family stepping away, I don’t think it usually leads to happiness in the long run. I don’t think it did with the Duke of Windsor.

“As for the Duke of Sussex, who knows what is going to happen to him, but he looks utterly miserable.”

The author has argued that “the most successful members of the Royal family” are those who “support” the monarch rather than “compete” with them – citing the late Queen’s cousin the Duke of Kent as a perfect example of a royal tirelessly devoted to their duties.

    Sussex children’s titles: ‘It’s been done before’

    Technically, Archie and Lilibet, Prince Harry and Meghan’s children, should have automatically became Prince and Princess when the Queen died.

    However their titles haven’t changed, and it was claimed Prince Harry would like to let the children decide when they are older.

    Historian Marlene Koenig told Express.co.uk: “Technically, according to the 1917 Letters Patent — I use the word technically because there has never been a situation when you have great-grandchildren move up since 1917 — Harry’s children should be styled as Prince.

    “But, so far, they’re not being styled as that. And there is another precedent. 

    “[Prince] Edward’s children were the same as Archie and Lili — Archie and Lili are now grandchildren of the Sovereign in the male line.

    “Are Edward’s children styled as prince and princess? No, they are styled as children of an Earl.”

    King Charles to ‘revolutionise’ the British monarchy

    A royal commentator says King Charles and Prince William are “making the monarchy fit for the 21st Century.”

    He wrote: “The new King is acutely aware of the difficulties facing the nation and feels a less lavish ceremony is more suitable.”

    “Unlike his father in 1969, it appears William is now very unlikely to be crowned with a coronet at Caernarfon Castle.
