Prince Harry was back in the tabloids in August 2012. It happened after the royal’s naked images were exposed to the public. The photos of the prince were taken during a private party in a Las Vegas hotel room. He was said to be playing strip billiards with his companions.

The Sun, owned by Rupert Murdoch, published the images of the partying royal, but most other English newspapers declined to publish them. While the issue dominated the news for a brief time, it appeared to have had little long-term influence on his popular image.

After the controversy, he made one of his first public appearances at the WellChild Awards in London, where he was greeted warmly.

He, on the other hand, discounted the possibility of a big schism between them. “We’re definitely on different roads right now,” he remarked. But he can count on me to always be there for him. And I know he’ll be there for me at all times. Because we’re so busy, we don’t see each other as much as we used to. “However, I adore him.”

Taking a Step Back From Royal Duties

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the shocking news on January 8, 2020. They intended to “retreat” from their high-ranking positions in the royal family and aim to become “financially self-sufficient.”

“We feel prepared to make this shift because of your encouragement, especially over the last few years.” We are now planning to split our time between the UK and North America. Continuing to uphold our responsibilities to Her Majesty the Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages.” This is what they said in a joint Instagram statement.

“We will be able to nurture our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born because of this geographic balance.” While also allowing our family to concentrate on the next chapter. This will include the introduction of our new nonprofit organization.”

Buckingham Palace issued a statement a few days later that clarified key aspects of the new arrangement. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would no longer receive public cash for royal obligations, according to the document. They would also avoid using the term His/Her Royal Highness.

The duo intends to continue working with private patrons. They might potentially make Frogmore Cottage their permanent residence in the United Kingdom. The couple did, however, promise to pay back the Sovereign Grant for recent upgrades.
