Prince Harry almost stepped down from Royal Family 13 years ago, resurfaced Interview reveals

Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that their decison to step back from the royal family, many blames have been poured out on Meghan but a recently resurfaced interview may prove that it was indeed a joint decision.

The newly resurfaced interview reveals that before Harry even met or married Meghan Markle, he had the idea to step back from the British Royal Family.

In a 2017 interview with Mail on Sunday, Prince Harry reflected on being in Afghanistan, Iraq in 2007 as a member of the British Army:

“I felt as though I was really achieving something. I have a deep understanding of all sorts of people from different backgrounds and felt I was part of a team. I wasn’t a Prince, I was just Harry.”

It sounded like it was the first time he really has a close-to or normal life but unfortunately, a magazine leaked his location and he had to be evacuated for security purposes.

“I spent many years kicking my heels and I didn’t want to grow up.”

Prince Harry in the past had made some headlines including a naked romp in Las Vegas, partying, getting into scuffles, and more. He said:

“I felt I wanted out but then decided to stay in and work out a role for myself.”

He later found his place back in the Royal family, thanks to Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles, although he took a backseat to his older brother who will one day be king. He added during the interview;

“I am determined to have a relatively normal life and if I am lucky enough to have children they can have one too. We don’t want to be just a bunch of celebrities but instead use our role for good.”
