The Queen or the terminator?
While the latest news sparked a debate on social media, an interview with Daily Mail from 2017 which resurfaced, showed that Prince Harry had been over his royal duties, long before marrying Markle in 2018.
In the interview, Harry admitted to once considering giving up his title, saying:
I felt I wanted out, but then decided to stay in and work out a role for myself.
Right now, the entire world is anxious to see what may the future hold for these two.
