Prince Harry has asked attendees at a conference to simply call him “Harry,” as he begins his final round of public engagements before beginning a new chapter away from the British royal family.
Introducing him to the stage on Wednesday at an event in Edinburgh, Scotland, for his sustainable travel initiative, the host said: “He’s 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.”
Harry is still permitted to use his royal titles — Sir or His Royal Highness — for a few more weeks, but has agreed to give up the descriptors when he officially steps back from the family on March 31.
Harry recently returned to London to carry out his final public engagements before that date. His wife, Meghan, is expected to join him. As well as their HRH titles, the couple also recently agreed to drop their “Sussex Royal” brand once they make their much-publicized split.
