A royal replacement: Prince Harry’s role as captain-general of the Royal Marines has been named

Interesting!

So as we all know by now, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made the decision to step down as senior members of the royal family.

With that, it was decided that Harry would have to let go of his military titles.

One of those happens to be a fairly important one - captain-general of the Royal Marines.

Prince Harry inherited this title from his grandfather, Prince Philip, who held it for over 60 years.

And now, Harry has to let it go.

But, fear not, the title will be going to another senior royal.

The wonderful Princess Anne will be taking over the role of captain-general of the Royal Marines.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected back in the UK next month where Harry will attend a farewell engagement with the Royal Marines.

Following that, the Princess Royal will take up the position.

The role would make the Princess Royal the first female captain-general of the Royal Marines in British history.

Princess Anne is already associated with 65 military organisations and is one of the hardest-working royals.

Fair play to her!
