Prince Harry Will Continue to Support Military Community in a Non-official Capacity after Royal Exit
Amid the official exit of the Sussexes from the Royal family, Prince Harry will reportedly carry on his works with the military, albeit in a non-official capacity.
With the day that the Duke of Sussex officially stops being a senior royal around the corner, it has been revealed that Prince Harry will continue to support the military communities around the world in a non-official way.
The news, which had come through the Sussex Royal website, explained that despite the initial agreement that the Duke would stay away from all royal duties, there would now be a compromise. It stated:
"Given his dedication to the military community and ten years of service, he will, of course, continue his unwavering support to the military community..."
As soon as the news became public, Hello Magazine pointed out that the announcement hadn't surprised royal observers and fans.
The Sussexes had begun a royal family drama after they made it known back in January that they wanted to step back from being senior royals.
As it turned out, Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle's last round of royal engagements, were centered around military-focused activities.

Tonight in London, for their third consecutive year, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Endeavour Fund Awards, which celebrates the achievements of those veterans injured in service who have taken part in remarkable sporting and adventure challenges over the last year. By choosing to take on what seems impossible, these men and women not only set goals for themselves but have also inspired millions of people around the world. These annual awards bring together The Duke and The Duchess alongside wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and veterans as well as their families, friends and supporters of the military community. The Duke, who founded the @EndeavourFund, spoke on the night: • “The Endeavour Fund came from seeing the gaping hole that can be left after taking off that uniform. The power that sport and adventurous challenge plays in recovery, yes; but most of all - the chance to be part of a team again while attempting to achieve unthinkable challenges - as if being shot or blown up wasn’t enough, you guys continue to impress, inspire and challenge what it means to have a life changing injury.” • Since its launch in 2012, the Endeavour Fund has supported 108 projects that have directly assisted over 6,000 of those injured in service. Congratulations to all those who participated in endeavours over the last year and inspired others to push the boundaries of what’s possible! #EndeavorFundAwards
For instance, the pair had attended the annual Endeavour Fund Awards at Mansion House which honored the achievements of wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women, who have participated in outstanding sporting and adventure challenges over the last year.
They had followed that event up with the Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall, which celebrated the unbelievable musicianship and parade of the Royal Marines.
For the occasion, Harry had worn his Captain-General of the Royal Marines uniform. Additionally, Buckingham Palace had confirmed that the father-of-one would retain the ranks of Major, Lieutenant Commander, and Squadron Leader.
The problem, however, was that the Duke of Sussex would not be allowed to use his honorary military positions during the 12-month probationary period.
After the 12 months, there would be a review of the arrangements made by all parties involved in Megxit.
Meanwhile, The Guardian divulged that Harry and Meghan would join onlookers at Harry's flagship charitable event, the Invictus Games. The event, which is slated to hold in May, would be hosted in The Hague in the Netherlands.
It would be recalled that the Sussexes had begun a royal family drama after they made it known back in January that they wanted to step back from being senior royals and become financially independent. The couple had subsequently moved to Canada with their son, Archie.
