That's not including all the military monickers he's about to give up like "Captain-General" of the Marines, Honorary Air Force Commandant of the Royal Air Force Base Honington or Honorary Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Naval Commands’ Small Ships and Diving.

    This bit isn't quite clear - he won't suddenly stop being a Prince but I think (different accounts in different papers) he won't and can't be addressed as "HRH Prince Harry" and it will probably just be Prince Harry. That stuff is just for formal occassions.

    What you have to remember is that as a kid his big dream was being a serving soldier doing his bit on the front line but the title and family background meant he was a target for the Taliban and by extension - his fellow soldiers. He was always happier being "Captain Wales" than he was "Prince Harry" so counter to what you read in the press - he won't be unhappy about losing those titles.

    As he himself said a few years ago when in the military “Definitely. I’ve always been like that. My father’s always trying to remind me about who I am and stuff like that. But it’s very easy to forget about who I am when I am in the army. Everyone’s wearing the same uniform and doing the same kind of thing. I get on well with the lads and I enjoy my job. It really is as simple as that.”

    They let him keep the title of prince in case he ever wishes to resume serving the crown......i.e. for a post-divorce return to his senses.

    and that's my opinion on the entire Royal family

    Which is why inheritance taxes were introduced.

    Inheritance tax is one of the oldest taxes in the world - even the Romans had it. What is clear though is that there are few inheritance tax systems that are truly fair to all.

    Why?
    What's his connection with the Royal Family of Great Britain and Northern Ireland?

    That is entirely false.

    The entire concept of birthright into aristocracy comes from the accumulation of and passing down to heirs the most extreme versions of governmental power and aristocracy, the entire concept of birthright into wealth comes from the accumulation of and the passing down to heirs wealth and property.

    The difference is vast.

    Someone in the 2nd income quintile passing to their kids a house and nice nest egg is wildly different than what happens in the UK with royalty passing down vast wealth and property even though there is little power left being handed down with.

    A dynasty existing does not mean targeting everyone who has something to pass to their kids.
