    Prince Harry was born a Prince and is the son of the Heir to the Throne. He will ALWAYS be a Prince, no matter what he calls himself.

    Because his title is not a "job" it is his birthright.

    because he knows with out the Prince, it harder to make money

    HE WILL PROBABLY BE KNOWN AS HARRY MOUNTBATTEN WINDSOR, JUST LIKE HIS SON IS ARCHIE MOUNTBATTEN WINDSOR. MAKES SENSE TO HAVE THE SAME NAME.

    Heโ€™s not calling himself 'Prince', at his last solo engagement he asked the people there just to call him Harry.

    He still has the HRH and the rank of Prince, should he relinquish or be stripped of that title officially, you would refer to him by the title Duke of Sussex.ย

    He was born a Prince and unless he renounces all of his titles, he will remain a Prince.

  • Harry is still calling himself a prince because he hasn't had a DNA test.ย

    Being a prince isn't a job.ย  As the son of the future king he will remain a prince, and retain the style of His Royal Highness. It is up to him if he doesn't want to use the title, but since he would be called The Duke of Sussex, it is somewhat academic.ย

    Harry did not quit being a prince. You are confusing being an official working royal with just being a prince of the blood royal. Harry steps down from being an official working royal on March 31st. He did not give up being a prince of the blood royal, something that he was born.

    Harry is well-known as being Prince Harry--his title from birth is the name that he is famously known. He is still Duke of Sussex. He can use his title but after the 31st he won't use his HRH styling.

    The Sussexes have not said how they are going to change their names, if they are going to change their names. They have just stated that they want to earn their own money. Officials say that they can not use their "HRH" to do so.

    The couple want to use their fame, notoriety, to earn money for their causes, their personal income so Harry will use the name and titles that he is known by, just not using "HRH."

    Because his Royal title has not been taken away.ย ย ย  They still have their HRHs but have been told not to use that title.ย ย  They can also still use their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles, for now.
