- Prince Harry is said to have abandoned his last name Mountbatten Windsor and is now known as “Prince Henry Charles Albert David Duke of Sussex”.
- Sources say the decision is not a “personal search” of the queen.
News recently announced that Prince Harry was even distancing himself further of the royal family by abandoning his last name, Mountbatten Windsor. According to Daily mail, Harry didn’t use his last name or his RHS title while registering his new tourism business Travalyst, instead listing himself “simply” as “Prince Henry Charles Albert David Duke of Sussex”. …Sensational! So much more laid back!
This obviously seems to be a fairly significant change for the Duke of Sussex, but according to one We weekly source, Harry “does not plan to officially give up his Mountbatten-Windsor title”, so there is no reason to draw shady conclusions here.
The source says that “The result is, he prefers to stay laid back and be known as” Harry “”, which makes perfect sense! More, the prince apparently “reassured” Queen Elizabeth II that her decision to informally abandon Mountbatten Windsor is “not a personal search” against her or the royal family.
I mean, pretty good. Meghan and Harry are clearly trying to live their lives as “normally” as possible in Los Angeles, so getting away from formality makes sense. And don’t forget that sources say that Harry “misses his family” and that he has been in contact with everyone – so no drama to see here, my friends!
