If you don’t live under a rock, you know that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided to step down as senior members of the royal family. Did you even know that there are high-ranking royals? Following the Bombshell announcement, they are giving up their HRH status by negotiating with the Queen, which means that when repaying renovation work to their Queen, Frogmore Cottage will not have to bow or speak to “Her Royal Highness”.
Much of this decision about the Horror of Horror has been done, but don’t forget that Harry’s mother, the late Princess Diana, lost her HRC status when she divorced Prince Charles.
Last night, Prince Harry made a statement at an event organized for the supporters of his Sentebale charity (Sentebale supports mental health and wellbeing in HIV-infected children). Recall Princess Diana, who is known to have destigmatized HIV by hugging those affected by the disease.
There were many statements that stood for me if you take into account all “sources” of the Royals.
- “Great Britain is my home and a place that I love. That will never change. “
- “The decision I made to make my wife and I resign was not a careless one. It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I didn’t always get it right, but there really was no other option as far as that was concerned. ” Keywords, decisions and negotiations have been going on there for months.
- “What I want to make clear is that we are not going away, and certainly not going away from you. Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that was not possible.” In no way is his intention to support his service to the Queen.
But that’s a quote that struck me the most because we are all at one time in our lives.
“We’re making a leap in confidence – thank you for giving me the courage to take this next step.”
Make a leap in faith
Life is not static or linear, there are ups and downs, good and bad times and there are moments when we make a leap of faith.
I think back all my life and while it was a big decision and a scary decision, some worked and some didn’t.
- I remember deciding to go to college thousands of miles from my family while my friends were retiring. I could have done that, but I wanted to go. It was scary because I didn’t know anyone and I’m not an openly sociable person. I trust myself in the first few months, all I wanted to do was transfer and get home, but I kept it up. It took me many months, but I finally found friends who are still my friends to this day.
- Accepting a job in New York City without a place of residence. In other cities, this dilemma is not a big deal as it is easy to find apartments. This is not the case in New York. So imagine you have a job and your parents have to sign for your apartment or have enough savings to pay the first and last month’s rent. Fortunately, it worked for me, but it was pretty scary.
- And to live in New York without friends. It was extremely scary, but I got confused.
- After my mother’s tragic death, move to Japan and take a job. My sister and I decided to teach English and get closer to my mother’s family. Imagine that you live and work in a city with 800 inhabitants and hardly speak the language. I not only value my year as a primary school teacher, but of course I spend a lot of time with my mother’s family.
- Step back from working and living in Florence for a year. I knew I was going to go to business school, but I wanted to have a big hurray before taking this step.
- I decide to adopt my daughter alone. I really wanted to be a mother and frankly I was at an age when there was no option to wait for Mr. Right. Talk about the ultimate leap in faith to become a mother near me with no financial or family support. And here we are 16 years later.
So I greet Prince Harry and his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, for their leap in faith. Because I have said many times that Prince Harry is the sixth king and when Prince Charles becomes king and Prince William ascends, Harry will be out of sight, just like Prince Charles’ siblings.
Tell us when you made a “leap of faith”.
