His new life in LA isn’t what he thought it would be.
Prince Harry has confided in friends that he’s missing his old life in the army and “cannot believe” what has unfolded in recent months.
Harry, who was stripped of his military appointments after he and wife Meghan left royal life in March, says he now “misses the camaraderie” of the army.
“Harry has told friends he is really missing the Army as well his military appointments. He misses the camaraderie of being in the forces,” a source told The Telegraph.
“He has been telling friends that he still can't believe this has happened. He can't believe his life has been turned upside down.
“He was in a happy place when he was serving in the Army, then he met Meghan and since then life has been great. But I don’t think he foresaw things turning out quite as they did.”
When Harry and Meghan decided to leave the royal family behind, the pair were faced with the fact that they had to give up the titles that went with it.
For Harry, this meant not only his role as the Duke of Sussex, but also his military roles as Captain General Royal Marines, Honorary Air Commandant, RAF Honington and Commodore-in-Chief, Small Ships and Diving, Royal Naval Command.
He did however, agree with the Queen to keep “the rank of Major”, as he would “continue his unwavering support to the military community in a non-official capacity.”
Meghan and Harry, who now live in LA with their son Archie, are living a very different life.
But friends say Harry doesn’t blame Meghan for how things turned out.
“Of course he doesn’t blame Meghan. There is just a sense that he might have been better protected if he was still in the Army.”
Despite his separation from the Royal family, it’s clear that Harry has always had strong ties to the Armed Forces.
Speaking about his time in the army he said it’s “as normal as it's going to get”, adding: “I'm one of the guys. I don't get treated any differently.”
