Seven months have passed since Prince Harry officially lost all of his military roles. He lost three of his titles as the Captain-General of the Royal Marines, Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Naval Commands, and Air Force Commandant of the Royal Air Force Base Honington following his and Meghan Markle's exit from the British Monarchy.
But, as the review of the exit deals fastly approaches, a royal expert argued that the royal-born Prince is "desperate" to restore them all. Richard Fitzwilliams claimed that the Duke of Sussex likely "hopes" to take up his military roles again next year, according to the Daily Express.
Speaking to the publication, Fitzwilliams explained that no one currently holds the roles. As Queen Elizabeth decided to go that way after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their decision to quit, this will continue until the end of the 12-month review come the spring season of 2021.
The royal expert continued that the Duke of Sussex will certainly appreciate it if he resumes his military posts after the review. Besides, he and his wife were, reportedly, "disappointed" about the decision of the senior royals to strip the royal-born Prince off of his honorary titles.
Sources told the authors of Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle saw this as their "biggest disappointment" of Megxit. It was, reportedly, a "tough pill" for them to swallow, especially for the Duke of Sussex, according to Marie Claire.
The unnamed insider added that this was the "most painful" thing for the Duchess of Sussex as she witnessed her husband go through it. She, allegedly, told her friends that it was "unnecessary" for the Duke to lose them as it did not only affect him but, the whole military and veteran community, as well.
Amid the talks about the review of their exit, many sources believe that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will return to the United Kingdom in 2021. The same insiders, however, claimed that the Sussex household will not fly back to the royals' turf anytime soon, according to Fox.
For this year's holiday season, the family of three will, reportedly, celebrate inside their new home in California. It would, then, mark as their second Christmas outside the U.K. and far away from the British Royal Family.
In 2019, they spent the holiday season in Canada as part of their supposed six-week break from royal duties. Upon their return to the U.K., they shortly announced their decision to quit the royal life.
