This Wednesday, Prince Harry returned to the UK for the Travalyst Sustainable Tourism Summit in Edinburg, Scotland.
His appearance on stage took the public by surprise, mostly because of the way he was introduced. The host, Ayesha Hazarika, informed the public that from now on, Harry prefers to be addressed to by his first name, without any HRH title.
Of course, taking into consideration that in January he and his wife, Meghan Markle, decided to step back from the royal life and their duties for the Queen, this shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone. This also meant that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will no longer be allowed to use their HRH titles anymore.
“He’s made it clear we that we are all just to call him ‘Harry, so ladies and gentlemen, please give a big, warm, Scottish welcome to Harry.”. This is the way he was introduced to the public by Rebecca English, the royal correspondent for The Daily Mail.
One of the topics from his discourse at the Summit was the new initiative called Travalyst, which is expected to “transform the future of travel into a more sustainable one that supports and protects destinations and local communities for decades to come.”. This is a project that Harry works on together with Booking.com, Skyscanner, Trip.com, TripAdvisor and Visa
