Prince Harry should ditch Duke title if ‘royalty was a weight on his shoulder’

Prince Harry should stop using his title if royalty was a "burden", says a royal expert.

In an "intimate" live-streamed chat with physician Dr Gabor Maté yesterday (Saturday, March 4), the Duke of Sussex confessed he felt "a great weight off my shoulders" when he left the royal family with wife Meghan Markle in 2020.

But To Di For Daily podcast host Kinsey Schofield said that if this is the case, he and wife Meghan should stop associating their brand with their titles.

"It's interesting that Harry and Meghan continue to utilize their royal titles despite Harry complaining that royalty was a weight on his shoulders," Schofield told the Daily Star.

"If royalty was such a burden he should stop advertising his association with the use of the Duke and Duchess titles."

The 90-minute interview promoting Harry's memoir, Spare, saw the prince and Dr Maté deep dive into sensitive subjects like what it was like growing up in the royal family.

Harry admitted that therapy had helped him "break free" from the Firm but also made him feel more distant from his relatives than ever before.

"A lot of families are complicated, a lot of families are dysfunctional – but for me when I was doing therapy regularly, I felt that I learned a new language," he told Dr Maté.

"This is working for me and I'm starting to go back to the point of trauma and unpack everything so I can be truly happy… but at the same time I'm feeling more and more distant from my loved ones and my family," he added.

Harry then said his therapist responded: "This is what happens for a lot of people."

The Duke added that he was in a much better place and said he saw his memoir, released on January 10, as an "act of service" and hoped that it would be helpful to readers.

"I definitely don't see myself as a victim," he said, adding: "Sharing my story will help some people out there."

However, Schofield wasn't necessarily in agreement and pointed out that sharing his story opened him up to "a never-ending cycle" of criticism.

"The more Harry talks, the more his critics are inclined to critique him," she said.

"[It's] a never-ending cycle. There is dignity in silence. Ask the royal family."
