“The United Kingdom is my home and a place I love. That will never change, but Meghan and I had no other choice”: Prince Harry breaks the silence after days of fibrillation and the announcement of their renunciation of the title of royal heights. He did so in London during a charity event for the Sentebale Association, founded by Harry himself and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006 in honor of Diana in order to perpetuate his help to Aids and HIV patients. Skynews reports.
“Before we begin – the Duke of Sussex began speaking for the first time after Buckingham Palace yesterday accepted the decision to renounce the title dictating the conditions of their new status – I must say that I can only imagine what you may have heard or perhaps read in the last few weeks. That is why I want you to hear the truth from me, as much as I can share. Not as a prince, a duke, but like Harry, the same person that many of you have seen grow over the last 35 years, but with a clearer perspective. “I grew up feeling the support of many of you,” she said to the charity’s supporters, “and I watched you welcome Meghan with open arms as you saw me find the love and happiness I had hoped for all my life. In the end, Diana’s second son had been impaled, yay! I also know that you know me well enough to trust that the woman I chose as my wife has the same values as me. She does, and she’s the same woman I fell in love with.”
“We both do everything we can to honor the flag and fulfill our roles for this country with pride. After we married, Meghan and I were excited, confident, and we were here to serve,” she continued. For all these reasons it makes me very sad that we have come this far. The decision I made for my wife and me to take a step back is not a decision made lightly. There have been many months of discussions, many years of battles. I know I wasn’t always right, but at the point, we were at, there was really no other option.
