• Prince Harry explains in interviews why he keeps his royal title 
  • His book is about to be published
  • This is his point of view

Since Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's retirement from the royal family in 2020, one scandalous interview has followed the next. On January 10th, Prince Harry's memoir Spare will also be released.

Harry spoke with presenter Anderson Cooper on the CBS show 60 Minutes during his promotional tour about, among other things, why he and his wife are not giving up their royal titles – and this despite the fact that the majority of Brits are in favor of Prince Harry no longer bearing his title.

Royal Title: How Prince Harry explains himself

Prince Harry was born with the title of Prince at birth, but Harry and Meghan received the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the day of their wedding in May 2018.

"Why not renounce your titles as Duke and Duchess?," asked Cooper in the interview. "And what difference would that make?", replied Harry.

Despite the resignation from the royal family, the two apparently want to keep their royal titles. In the Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan, the couple mainly criticizes the press, but they turn to publicly express criticism of the royal family.

Why be so public? Why reveal conversations you've had with your father or with your brother? You say you tried to do this privately," asked Anderson Cooper to Harry.

"And every single time I've tried to do it privately there have been briefings and leakings and planting of stories against me and my wife. You know, the family motto is 'never complain, never explain.' But it's just a motto. And it doesn't really hold," describes the younger son of King Charles III.

Prince Harry presents his point of view in interviews

Prince Harry also gave a revealing interview for ITV and stated in this regard: "We're six years into it now and I have spent every single year of those six doing everything I can privately to get through to my family. And the thing that is the saddest about this, Tom, is it never needed to be this way. It never needed to get to this point," said Harry to Tom Bradby.
