I read that Camilla will be queen consort when Charles becomes king. From Harper's Bazaar:
Vanity Fair wrote in a lengthy profile on the royal couple in 2018, "According to recent reports, Camilla will eventually become queen consort, the customary title for the wife of a reigning king." This is also the title that Kate Middleton will receive when Prince William eventually becomes king.
Also, Harry did "abdicate", though he is still 6th in line to the throne. From Rolling Stone...
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will abdicate their royal titles and repay taxpayers $3.1 million as part of the arrangement that will allow the couple to “step back as senior members of the Royal Family,” Buckingham Palace announced Saturday.
While Harry and Markle will not be stripped entirely of their royalty — Harry will remain sixth-in-line for the British throne — the pair will no longer employ the titles “His Royal Highness” and “Her Royal Highness.”
If Harry is said to abdicate, why then, does he retain his title of Prince and remain 6th in line for the throne?
He did not abdicate the throne, since he is not a sitting king. He and Meghan abdicated their "royal" titles (HRH).
They actually are retaining their royal titles, just not permitted to use them under the present agreements. This leaves the door open for Harry should everything go wrong in his decision.
I think he's just about got a guarantee that this will go wrong.
They are no longer "HRH." From the article I referenced above...
"While Harry and Markle will not be stripped entirely of their royalty — Harry will remain sixth-in-line for the British throne — the pair will no longer employ the titles “His Royal Highness” and “Her Royal Highness.”
Evidently, it just means they cannot use it under the present agreement.
He can get it his title back once his divorce is final. I bet Vegas is already taking bets on how long this thing will last.
I don't wish him the worst. Obviously, he was somehow whipped by a female (can't post the appropriate word). Once
it all blows over, he will be able to return to being a great monarch again. I have always like him. Never liked her though.
@Bess Barber , why don't you tell us how you really feel?
What Harry is doing is peanuts!
Edward VIII abdicated his throne to marry an American divorcee (Wallis Simpson), in 1936, after serving one year as King of England! This was WAY bigger news than Harry leaving Mommy's home with his commoner wife.
Weren't you people aware of this world-shaking event,? (Which happened in my time.)
He changed history by doing that. If he hadn't, Queen Elizabeth would never have been queen.
I was aware. I also realize this was a much bigger deal now. If it had happened, instead of Harry's debacle, I would've had much more fun blasting
Good point!! She is a much better Queen than he would've ever been as a King.
I've always envied her. She had a man who loved her so much that he gave up a kingdom for her.
