Prince Harry expresses ‘great sadness’ he and his wife Meghan had to give up their royal titles

Prince Harry of Britain expressed “great sadness” on Sunday at the way he and his wife Meghan had to give up their royal titles as part of separation settlement with the Queen.

“It brings me great sadness that it’s come to this,” Harry said in his first remarks on Saturday’s historic agreement, made during a public address and posted on the couple’s Instagram account.

“Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible,” he told supporters of his Africa-based charity for youngsters with HIV at an occasion in London.

The settlement stripped Harry and Meghan of public funding and required them to repay £2.4 million ($3.1 million) of taxpayer’s money spent on renovating their Frog-more Cottage home near Windsor Castle.

Harry was also forced to offer up the military titles and patronages he was awarded after serving two tours in Afghanistan with British Army.

But Harry said he felt “utmost respect” for Queen Elizabeth .

“It has been our privilege to serve you, and we will still lead a life of service.”

“I will always have the utmost respect for my grandmother, my commander in chief, and that i am incredibly grateful to her and the rest of my family, for the support they have shown Meghan and me over the last few months.”

He also hinted at some trepidation at starting a new life faraway from his royal home. He and Meghan will spend a while in Canada before deciding whether to move to the us or another country.

“We are taking a leap of faith — many thanks for giving me the courage to take this next step,” he said.
