While other royals are typically referred to in more formal terms, like His or Her Royal Highness or the Duke or Duchess.

But our loveable, red headed and probably the most down-to-earth royal has really always been known as one thing – Prince Harry.

So we don’t know how to feel now that it’s being made clear that Harry no longer wants to be known as Prince Harry.

The Duke of Sussex returned to the UK on Wednesday for a sustainable tourism event in Scotland, when he made it clear that there will be some changes now that he’s stepping down from being a senior member of the royal family.

In Scotland today, The Duke of Sussex and Travalyst have hosted a summit to launch their next phase of work, putting communities first, with a mission to create a more sustainable tourism industry. • “We are a coalition of partners with a shared goal to transform the future of tourism and travel for everyone – to give people access to better information and ensure the future development of tourism positively supports the destinations that the industry relies on, and that their communities depend on. We believe travel is a good thing. It is the heart of human experience, of cultural connections and of new friendships.” – The Duke of Sussex Travalyst is working to build a future where people are able to take holidays and trips that have social, environmental and economic benefits to communities and destinations built in. There is an increasing desire for these types of trips – and we want to make them a reality for everyone. At today’s summit in Edinburgh, representatives from across the Scottish tourism sector discussed the need to encourage and incentivise sustainable practices across the supply chain, in a way that meets the needs of consumers who want more clarity on how to choose more sustainable options.

During his introduction at the event, it was made clear that he no longer wants to be referred to as Prince Harry and instead, conference host Ayesha Hazarika said he “made it clear that we are all just to call him Harry”.

“So ladies and gentlemen, please give a big, warm Scottish welcome to Harry,” she said.

The Palace has not made an official statement about the change in title for Harry.

The Sussex Royal Instagram account posted images this morning of Harry’s trip to Scotland, saying that he’s there to learn about how the country’s tourism division is helping to increase sustainability and support local communities.

Today, The Duke of Sussex is in Scotland – one of the world’s fastest growing tourist destinations – to hear what they’re doing to put sustainability at the forefront of holidays that protect the environment and support local communities. The number of tourists globally is rapidly rising, and based on an increasing desire from travellers, The Duke’s international partnership Travalyst is working to ensure the industry can better support communities that face increasing challenges of overcrowding, pollution, and the climate emergency. Supporting these communities means preserving these destinations for everyone. By harnessing the power of travel, which accounts for 1 in 10 jobs globally, generating nearly $9 trillion annually, and is at the heart of connecting people and culture, tourism can lead the way in supporting communities and protecting the environment. At a summit in Edinburgh, representatives from the Scottish tourism and travel sector will join event partners @visitscotland and @eicc_uk to help test and develop the latest work. Founding partners @Bookingcom, @Skyscanner, @Trip, @TripAdvisor and @Visa_US are working with The Duke, backed up by consumer demand, to transform travel and tourism globally so that every holiday people take, every trip they book, can have a positive impact on the destinations they visit.

This comes as Harry and wife Meghan Markle prepare to finish up as working royals on March 31. From that date, the couple will live out their new arrangement with the queen before a review will take place in one year.
