Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall’s assumption of a traditionally Prince Harry “gig” has sparked questions over what else the Duke of Sussex could lose. The Duchess of Cornwall had attended the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey, kicking off a series of military Remembrance week services for the Royal Family. HeirPod host and ABC royal contributor Omid Scobie spoke to ABC foreign correspondent Maggie Rulli about what this indicated about the future.

Mr Scobie told listeners: “What was interesting about this particular engagement is that it’s one that we’ve usually seen Prince Harry take on.

“In fact, for the last however many years, this was Prince Harry’s gig.

“You will often see the photos or remember the photos of Harry standing in the field of bright red poppies at the Abbey.

“It was interesting to see some of the work that the Duke of Sussex had been doing now handed over the other members of the Royal Family.”

He continued: “I’m sure we’ll see a lot more of this.

“We may have seen a lot more of this already had we not been dealing with various lockdowns and restrictions.”

Ms Rulli agreed: “That is really interesting, you forget how much of a monumental shift this has been for the Royal Family because so much else has been going on in the world.

“It also has made it more difficult for Harry and Meghan to come back to the UK.”

She added: “Initially they were supposed to be back quite frequently, but clearly now it’s difficult for everyone to travel, royals included.

“So all of the separation may not have seemed so extreme. Harry could have come back for this ceremony even.

“But that is no longer possible, and it’s interesting to see how it’s weighing on the Royal Family as well.”
