During an event for his sustainable travel initiative, Travalyst, the Duke of Sussex was introduced simply as “Harry.”
A month shy from his departure from the royal family, Harry made it clear that he will now go without the honorific.
The host of the event, Ayesha Hazarika, called him to the stage by declaring, “He [has] made it clear that we are all just to call him Harry, so ladies and gentlemen, please give a big, warm Scottish welcome to Harry.”
The event took place in Edinburgh, Scotland, where Harry spoke about tourism and the importance of “keeping [the] culture alive [and] protecting some of the world's most precious spaces.”
Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, will officially step away from the royal family on 31 March 2020. The couple has agreed to remove their “Sussex Royal” title following their publicized withdrawal as royals.
The pair will go through a 12-month transition period at the end of March, and will shift their focus to setting up their non-profit organization.

In Scotland today, The Duke of Sussex and Travalyst have hosted a summit to launch their next phase of work, putting communities first, with a mission to create a more sustainable tourism industry. • “We are a coalition of partners with a shared goal to transform the future of tourism and travel for everyone – to give people access to better information and ensure the future development of tourism positively supports the destinations that the industry relies on, and that their communities depend on. We believe travel is a good thing. It is the heart of human experience, of cultural connections and of new friendships.” - The Duke of Sussex Travalyst is working to build a future where people are able to take holidays and trips that have social, environmental and economic benefits to communities and destinations built in. There is an increasing desire for these types of trips – and we want to make them a reality for everyone. At today’s summit in Edinburgh, representatives from across the Scottish tourism sector discussed the need to encourage and incentivise sustainable practices across the supply chain, in a way that meets the needs of consumers who want more clarity on how to choose more sustainable options.
