Prince Harry can still become King of the United Kingdom. Despite leaving his position as a working member of the Royal Firm, he remains as the sixth person in line to the British Throne.
Prince Charles and Prince William come next after Queen Elizabeth II in the line of succession. The Duke of Sussex is in the sixth spot because the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's three children preceded him in the royal order.
Express UK recalled that after the Sussex Royals' exit, the pair's then-official website explained the matter. It stated that stepping down from their posts would not change the royal Order of Precedence.
Prince Harry may have not lost his position in the line of succession, but he and Meghan Markle had to let go of several other things upon announcing their decision to quit the royal life.
The publication recalled the Duke and Duchess of Sussex first intended to continue to support Queen Elizabeth II even after stepping down as senior working royals. After lengthy discussions, though, the Firm agreed that the Sussex couple could not formally serve the monarch in any official capacity.
Accordingly, they lost their official roles, as well as their honorary and military ranks, and royal patronages.
Another thing that Prince Harry lost was the public funding. Considering that they had stepped down as working members of the British Royal Family, they could no longer receive funds from the British taxpayers.
In addition, the royal-born Prince and his wife pointed out in their announcement that they decided to exit to become "financially independent."
The Duke of Sussex reiterated this aspect of the deal during his and the Duchess of Sussex's interview with Oprah in 2021. He told the television personality that his family "literally cut [him] off financially," according to BBC.
Despite losing several things upon their exit from the British Monarchy, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle retained a few things, as well. Reports said that these include their "private patronages," such as Smart Works and Mayhew for the latter and Sentebale and the Invictus Games for the former.
In addition, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex still have their HRH titles. However, they can no longer actively use the style as they are not working members of the Royal Firm.
The couple, also, retained their Duke and Duchess of Sussex peerages. Although many were urging Queen Elizabeth II to strip them off of it, she did not as she gifted the dukedom to her grandson upon marriage.
