Prince Harry “deserves” to keep his military titles and it will be a “massive ordeal” having to hand them back, an army pal has claimed.
The Duke of Sussex and wife Meghan Markle’s permanent split from the Royal Family was announced last week.
As part of the arrangement, Harry lost a number of military titles that several royal insiders have claimed meant a lot to him owing to his five years of service.
Martyn Compton, who was badly burned in Afghanistan in 2006, has been friends with the prince for more than 15 years and previously warned his pal about his upcoming Oprah Winfrey interview .
He appeared on ITV’s Lorraine today (February 25) to speak about the devastation Harry will face of having his titles stripped.
Martin said: “He [Harry] was very passionate about what he done.
“He’d obviously served his time so anyone that serves their time deserves what they have got.
“And to have that taken away is going to be a massive ordeal for him.”
Speaking about the split further, he added: “It’s a big thing that he’s done and, personally, I hope it’s worth it for him.
“It’s a big ordeal for him and for him to be able to do that, he’s obviously looking out for his family.”
Lorraine then asked Martyn whether he wished his old pal could have kept the titles and remain “half-in, half-out” as the couple initially suggested.
