Meghan Markle & Prince Harry latest news: Absence from event with Kate Middleton means Royal life ‘ship has sailed’


PRINCE Harry would face ‘no going back’ to his former life if he is AXED from an important role – and the “final nail in the coffin” of his royal affiliation.

The Duke, along with Andrew, William and Charles, is one of four Counsellors of States – but there are questions around his eligibility as he now lives in US.

A source told the Mail Online: “Being removed, by parliament no less, as a Counsellor of State would really be the nail in Harry’s coffin of his former life as a frontline member of the royal family.”

“If the Queen does take steps to have this situation remedied and Harry is axed, there really is no going back. All of these decisions – the military titles, the HRHs in abeyance – could theoretically be reversed. However, having parliament take formal action to remove them as Counsellors of State is in another league entirely.”

It comes as the Home Office won’t back down over Harry, 37, and Meghan’s demand for police protection when they visit the UK, it has been claimed.

The Duke of Sussex has launched legal action against the Government over the decision to take away his police bodyguards after he stepped back from royal duties two years ago.
