Prince Harry rocks as Brother William prepares to take on beloved Marines role | Royal | News


The decision, confirmed by senior Royal Navy sources, predicts that the result of Harry’s 12-month review will find “no reason to change the current arrangements.” The Duke of Sussex was appointed Captain General of the Marines in 2017 when his grandfather, Prince Philip, resigned after serving in the post for 67 years.

The decision to formally replace him will be a blow to Harry, who reportedly hoped to resume his ceremonial duties despite moving to the United States with his wife Meghan.This is a new book, Battle Of Brothers, claims to expose the depth of the royal family’s anger over Harry and Meghan’s decision to step down.

The Duke of Cambridge was so furious that he refused to have dinner alone with Harry before a summit with the Queen, it has been claimed.

The Queen also felt the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were ‘erratic and impulsive’ in their departure, royal biographer Robert Lacey’s book said.

While William currently holds titles in the armed forces, his only major command post is that of Colonel-in-Chief of the Irish Guards. And the Marines believe the future king will be a morale and recruiting boost.

A source said: “The Duke of Cambridge has been approached with a view to assuming the role of Captain General.

“There is a real feeling that, if he accepted it, he would offer the Corps exactly what it needs at this point in its history.

“We understand that he is eager to make this appointment.”

In March, Harry reportedly told Royal Marines Commanding General Matthew Holmes that he was “devastated” to have to step down, adding: “I feel like I’m letting people down, but I had no choice.”

It comes as Prince William’s three children ask conservation king Sir David Attenborough about nature for a new program created by the Duke.

Princes George and Louis and his sister Princess Charlotte all asked Sir David, 94, about animals.

The cute question and answer session was filmed at Kensington Palace – the family’s official London residence – for a show William hosted on conservation.

In it, the proud dad, 38, reveals that his three young people love the outdoors. His oldest son George, in particular, he said, “is like a caged animal” if he is stuck inside for a long time.

During the trip, he gave Prince George a fossilized shark tooth. And it was George, seven, who asked the first question for the program, which airs on ITV tonight.

Wearing a casual red and navy t-shirt, he said confidently, “Hello David Atten-borough, what animal do you think you will go missing next?”

Sir David, who looked delighted throughout the conversation, said: ‘Well hopefully there won’t be, because there is a lot we can do when animals are in. danger of extinction. We can protect them. ”

He then mentioned the moment his TV career took off, saying: “About 40 years ago I was with mountain gorillas in central Africa – mountain gorillas were very, very rare then. , there were only 250 left – and we showed pictures of over

television across the world, and people thought how terrible it would be if they disappeared.

“So they took out a lot of money and a lot of people came to help them, and now there are over a thousand.

“So you can save an animal if you want to and put your mind to it.

“People all over the world are doing this, because animals are so precious, so let’s hope there won’t be more that go missing.”
