Prince Harry is reportedly devastated upon learning that his older brother, Prince William, has been named Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps, a title previously held by Harry. The announcement, made by Buckingham Palace, has left Harry deeply affected, according to royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams.

Fitzwilliams stated, “King Charles’ announcement that Prince Harry is being stripped of his role as Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Corps is a real kick in the teeth for the son who always felt marginalized.”

The transfer of the title to Prince William, whom Harry reportedly sees as a source of his struggles, has left him emotional. Fitzwilliams added, “Harry needs to realize that when you betray the family, you don’t just escape the things you hated doing as a working royal. You also lose the things you loved.”

Despite this blow, Prince Harry has shown resistance. During a recent event honoring the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games, he prominently wore the KCVO Neck Order and Star, given to him by Queen Elizabeth II. Royal author Tom Quinn believes this act was Harry’s way of asserting his worth and reminding his family of his contributions.

The timing of William’s new title has fueled speculation about the already strained relationship between Harry and their father, King Charles III. Despite the public’s interest, Harry’s recent visit to the U.K. did not include a meeting with his father, further intensifying public scrutiny and criticism toward the King’s priorities.
