He recalled that after the divorce, née Diana Spencer lost the title “Her Royal Highness” and had to be referred to only as “Diana, Princess of Wales”. In addition, excluded all of the requirements for compliance with the requirements of Royal etiquette. However, British media continued to use the Royal titles at the mention of the Princess of Wales and followed every detail of her visits.
According to Hardman, there was one incident that was memorable to Queen Elizabeth II. Princess Diana was involved in a sponsorship event, which eclipsed the official visit of the monarch and her husband Prince Philip in Thailand. “She was paid 50 thousand pounds sterling for the presentation of her new autobiography at the Vienna shopping center escorted by two “guards”, musicians playing “God save the Queen”, and sellers trading in Royal linen with a photograph of the Duchess”, — the journalist writes about another incident that struck the Royal family of his vulgarity.
Earlier it became known that Queen Elizabeth II endorsed the decision of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex about the refusal of Royal privileges, but wished that they didn’t do it. The couple will take the transition transition, during which they will be able to live in Canada and the UK.
January 8 Prince Harry and Meghan Markle refused the title of members of the Royal family, retaining the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex. They said that in the future I plan to refuse funding from the state budget and become financially independent. The pair will represent the Royal family at official events, but will continue “to do my duty to Queen and Commonwealth”.
