This is a very easy one, if you leave your place of employment you forego any perks of the job and have to give back the company car etc and Archie’s father has chosen to leave the well known firm called the Royal Family.

If you are not ordained as a Vicar you do not have the right to use the title of Vicar, or if you are not in the Police force and chose to impersonate the Chief Constable you can be arrested, God forbid that someone who is not a qualified brain surgeon should be allowed to poke around willy-nilly in some poor unsuspecting soul’s head, you cannot have the title if you are not qualified for the job.

Unfortunately Archie’s father has chosen to leave the Royal Family and distance himself and his family from them and to live in America allegedly because of the pressure of being a member of the Royal Family and the detrimental effect it has had on his mental health.

It seems to me that you can’t have it both ways, you are either in or out, if you want your son to have the title of Prince then you have to return to Great Britain and take up where you left off as a working Royal.

Harry has chosen to leave the job, so with that decision he now has to give up the company car and any perks of the job which he or members of his family may have been entitled to like any other employee, he has made his bed, now he has to lay in it.

About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother who had dementia, hence the lack of acting work but shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.

  1. I am not getting into that argument. I saw how heated it got on Good Morning Britain yesterday

    I agree with you, he made his bed albeit the wrong one. I wrote a very similar article at the time and this is a section of it, written as an explanation to our American friends as to why Archie did not receive a title.
    Over a hundred years ago, King George V declared that the great-grandchildren of the monarch would no longer be princes or princesses, except for the children of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales.

    The remaining great-grandchildren of which our queen has several, would be unsupported by the public purse; however, when Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales becomes King Charles, Archie will automatically receive his title and provided he works for the family firm, he will be financially supported by the British taxpayer.
