Prince Harry could still be King – even without being a working royal

Though the chances of it ever occurring are incredibly slim, even after his dramatic royal walkout Prince Harry could still one day become King.

As the line of succession passes through the first born, Harry was already sixth in line to the throne anyway – behind Charles, William and William's three young children.

Though both Harry and Meghan have officially stepped down from royal duties, this doesn't alter the line of succession in any way.

As Harry hasn't been removed from the line of succession, he is still sixth in line, and his son Archie is seventh.

If Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis all decide not to have children of their own, the British crown would come to Harry's side of the family.

But it's more likely that Harry and his children will move further down the line of succession as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis grow up and have kids.

Will he still be called 'Prince Harry'?

Though Harry's decision to quit all royal responsibilities has meant the Prince has been stripped of a number of honours, titles and patronages he will still be a Prince and known as the Duke of Sussex.

Wife Meghan will also remain a Duchess, as the pair were given the titles as a wedding present following their ceremony in May 2018 at Windsor Castle.

Harry is a former front-line soldier, but he has lost a number of honorary military positions.

What honorary titles and patronages has Prince Harry lost?

The Duke of Sussex has lost his position as Captain General of the Royal Marines as well as Captain of the Honorary Air Force Commandant of the Royal Air Force Base Honington.

He no longer has the role of Honorary Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Naval Commands' Small Ships and Diving.

The decision to relinquish royal duties has meant Harry has had to give up presidency of The Queen's Commonwealth Trust, with the charity today thanking both Harry and Meghan for their “keen support and encouragement” in a statement.

Though he is still a keen rugby fan, he will also no longer be a patron of the Rugby Football Union and the Rugby Football League, roles he inherited from the Queen.
