A source at Buckingham Palace named the main reason for the Duke of Sussex’s quarrel with the royal family. This is reported by The Sun.
An unnamed insider of the tabloid, close to the court, said that the reason for the “attack” of Prince Harry on relatives was the message about the deprivation of his military ranks.
According to the source, this caused a major quarrel between the Duke of Sussex and his family, after which the prince agreed to a scandalous interview with Oprah Winfrey “within 24 hours.” “Harry really valued his position in the armed forces, as he really participated in the fighting,” he said.
Prince Harry, 36, served in the Army Air Corps. From December 2007 to February 2008, he served as an air gunner in the Helmand province of Afghanistan, and from September 2012 to January 2013, he participated in military operations in southern Afghanistan. The Duke of Sussex retired from the armed forces with the rank of major.
In addition to the rank of retired major and other honorary military positions, Prince Harry held the title of Captain-General of the Royal Marines.
In February 2021, Buckingham Palace announced that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle would not return to their duties as senior members of the British royal family. At the same time, Queen Elizabeth II stripped Harry and Meghan of the status of patrons of some institutions and charities and took away the prince’s remaining honorary military titles.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship with Buckingham Palace finally soured in March 2021 after a controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which the Duchess of Sussex hinted at the racist sentiments of some members of the royal family
