Im CBS-Interview

Prince Harry (38) and Duchess Meghan (41) resigned from their royal duties in 2020 and moved to the United States. However, they have retained their royal titles, which has repeatedly caused criticism in view of the massive settlement between the two and the British royal family. In the CBS interview with US journalist Anderson Cooper (55), which was part of the program '60 Minutes' and in advance of the release of Harry's memoir 'Reserve' ('Spare' on January 10), also on Sunday (January 8). ) aired, Harry took a stand on it.

Why don't Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan give up the titles?

Prince Harry and his wife Duchess Meghan, a native of the United States, stepped down from their senior royal duties in January 2020 and moved to their native California. The two signed a multi-million dollar deal with Netflix and months later gave US talk icon Oprah Winfrey (68) a scandalous revealing interview.

Through it all, the couple have continued to use the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex, which they received from Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022) on their wedding anniversary in May 2018, and Cooper asked, 'Why not renounce your titles as duke and duchess?'

Prince Harry replied succinctly, 'And what difference would that make?'

Why are Harry and Meghan going public with family conflicts?

As 'Mail Online' quoted from the TV interview, among other things, the moderator wanted to know why Harry wanted to make the internal family conflicts public.

'You want to move to California, you want to step down from the institutional role. That's fine, but why be so public? Why did you want to disclose conversations you had with your father or with your brother?' Anderson asked Cooper. 'Every time I've tried to do it privately, there have been briefings and leaks that have circulated stories against me and my wife. You know, the family motto is, 'Never complain, never explain,'' he said Harry about this saying. 'But that's just a motto. And it's not really valid.'

'It should never have come to this'

Already in the first TV interview of the evening with journalist Tom Bradby (55), which had just been broadcast on the British broadcaster ITV, Harry commented on his urge to go public with private issues. 'It's been six years now and I've spent every single one of those six years doing everything I can privately to get through to my family. And the saddest part is that it never had to come to this.' , he said. 'I've had conversations, I've written letters, I've written e-mails, and everyone just said, 'No, that's not true. You're just imagining it.' And that's really hard to take.' He continued: 'If it had stopped when I fled my home country with my wife and son in fear for our lives, it might have ended differently.'

Prince Harry's memoir will be officially released on January 10th. However, the content has been circulating in the media since an unplanned pre-release in Spain.
