According to the recent publication of the book Finding Freedom where intimate details of the couple are revealed, it was learned that the son of Princess Diana lost his honorary military appointments that had been granted to him as a member of superior royalty.
“As a retired military man, Harry can always wear his medals; but he would no longer be able to wear the uniform as Captain General of the Royal Marines, Honorary Commander of the Royal Air Force Air Force Bas Honington, and honorary Commodore-in-Chief of Diving and Small Craft Operations of the Royal Navy. These roles had come to an end “
Author Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s post revealed that Prince Harry was devastated during the Mountbatten Music Festival as he knew it was the last time he would wear his military garb.
For its part, the book states that for Meghan it was an “unnecessary” decision.
