Prince Harry returned to the United Kingdom for the first time since leaving for Canada with his wife. At his first public event, he asked to be addressed without a Royal title, although the couple will not officially lose it until April, at the end of the fiscal year.
“He made it clear that he should be referred to simply as Harry,” host Ayika Azarika warned the audience at the first of seven events in which the Prince will take part.
Harry spoke in Edinburgh at the forum of the Travalyst initiative he announced in September.
Travalyst, which was created by several large companies, including Booking.com, TripAdvisor and Visa, promotes environmentally responsible tourism. The goal of the initiative is to preserve and protect nature in places visited by tourists and support local communities. On the Travalyst website, Prince Harry is referred to as His Royal Highness the Duke of Sussex, but in April, the Prince will not be allowed to use the Royal title, although he will remain a Duke.
Meghan Markle didn’t come to Britain this time. The events that Harry will take part in are mostly dedicated to charity. On Friday, he will visit Abbey Road studios, where the Beatles have recorded 11 of their 13 albums, and meet singer Jon Bon Jovi, who is recording the single for charity.
