Meghan Markle’s Cry as UK Home Secretary Denies Passport for Prince Harry

Amid the changing tides in the UK, the issuance of new passports marked a significant shift in history. For more than 70 years, official travel documents bore the inscription “In the name of Her Majesty” during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

However, this week a new British passport was unveiled, displaying the name of the current monarch, King Charles III. The change means the first time since 1952 that British passports are issued under the title of “Her Majesty”, a title last seen during the reign of King George VI.

Home Secretary Sola Braverman has highlighted the historic significance of the moment, saying it marks a new era in UK history. King Charles, being the reigning monarch, no longer needs a passport when traveling, as passports are issued in the name of the current monarch. When he was Prince of Wales he needed a passport, but now as King that requirement no longer applies.

The front page of the new passport proudly displays the royal coat of arms, accompanied by a different inscription. All British passports will now state: “Her Britannic Majesty’s Secretary of State requests and demands, in Her Majesty’s name, all whom he may concern to allow the bearer free passage without hindrance or hindrance and to give the bearer such assistance and protection as may be required.”

It is essential to note that the change of monarch does not invalidate current passports. The introduction of new documents will be done gradually until the remaining stock is exhausted with the words “Her Majesty”. The decision to use the remaining stamps depicting the late Queen was made by King Charles to avoid waste.

Focusing on the living situation of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Buckingham Palace has officially confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have left Frogmore Cottage, their UK residence, three months after news broke that they had been asked to leave.

The Sovereign Grant annual report has revealed details of the Royal Family’s spending for the year, and during a press briefing private purse keeper Michael Stevens addressed the status of Frogmore Cottage.

Additionally, Prince Harry said he and Meghan would never return to the UK or become full-time working members of the Royal Family again. This announcement came shortly after it was hinted that they would not be giving up their official titles. The couple’s decision to step down from royal duties and move in 2020 prompted them to repay around $3million, funds used to renovate Frogmore Cottage in 2019 before their move.

As the royal landscape evolves with new passport changes and shifting residences, the world is watching with curiosity and intrigue to see how the future unfolds for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
