Prince Harry has been urged to face the upshots of his decision to give up his senior royal position. This is because his abrupt departure caused him to lose his military roles.
It has been months since Megxit happened, but Prince Harry still cannot run away from the effects of his decision.
Before the Duke of Sussex left his senior royal post, he holds several high military titles.
This includes Captain-General of the Royal Marines, Honorary Air Force Commandant of the Royal Air Force Base Honington, and Honorary Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Naval Commands’ Small Ships and Diving.
Ever since he left, the roles remain available for grabs. However, a royal expert revealed that these positions will be given to Prince William soon.
This event will surely become a massive slap for the duke.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have said we must all acknowledge the "uncomfortable" past of the Commonwealth.
The Duke of Sussex said "it's not going to be easy" but "it needs to be done".

Prince William to clean Prince Harry’s mess
In an interview with Express UK, Marlene Koenig said that the future King will receive the aforementioned military titles.
“He already knew that he was going to lose the position with the Marines. He’s not being stripped of his ranks just his military assignments,” she went on.
She also revealed that Princess Anne would take over him. However, Koenig said that Prince William would grab the roles instead.
When it happens, the royal expert saw it as something ceremonial. She then suggested that Prince Harry will suffer from the consequences because of his decision.
“You can’t have your cake and eat it too,” Koenig said. You chose to leave, and therefore there are certain things you will no longer have access to.”
Duke of Sussex regrets Megxit?
Amid these claims, more royal experts revealed that the royal prince actually regretted losing the titles.
In Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s book Finding Freedom, they revealed that the Duke of Sussex felt devastated after losing the roles.
“Harry’s lifelong commitment to the military was why the Mountbatten Festival of Music three days later was a particularly difficult moment; he was set to wear his Captain-General of the Royal Marines uniform for the very last time,” they wrote.
The royal experts added that the duke even told Major General Matthew Holmes that he feels devastated. Things got even worse when he needed to step down.
Meanwhile, his wife, Meghan Markle reportedly told her friend that it was unnecessary to strip off Prince Harry’s military titles.
