Princess Anne is to Inherit Prince Harry
After the royal separation: Princess Anne is to inherit Prince Harry
In the middle of the Megxit, the Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, is now speaking. The 98-year-old, who is already in royal retirement, apparently also wants to have a say in Prince Harry’s legacy, i.e. the distribution of his royal duties. Prince Philip already has a successor in mind as regards the Royal Marines, the naval service of the British Naval Service.
Prince Philip sees Princess Anne as a worthy successor to Prince Harry
If it is up to Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, his daughter Princess Anne will in future become Captain General of the Royal Marines. Prince Harry has held the post since 2017. At that time he had inherited his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh. It is therefore all the more painful for him that his grandson simply gave up all his royal duties. Yes, Prince Harry said in a statement after the breakup that he hadn’t made the decision lightly. According to him, there was “no other option”.
Prince Philip deeply hurt by Prince Harry’s decision
However, according to a royal insider, Prince Philip was “deeply hurt”. “Philip accused Harry and Meghan of lacking respect and he’s tired of their behavior,” the insider told gossip portal “Newidea”. It is understandable that Princess Anne should inherit Prince Harry’s legacy. “Princess Anne is already the Admiral Chief Commandant of the Royal Navy and the Duke believes she would be the perfect choice for the Marines.”
