Embarrassing problem after Prince Harry’s speech

Prince Harry nicknamed the “Duke of Wessex”.

But his successor had an embarrassing mishap. Omar Hilale, Morocco’s permanent representative to the United Nations, took the stage immediately after Harry left and wanted to mention the royal again in his own speech – but confused him.

Hilale referred to the Queen’s grandson as the ‘Duke of Wessex’. However, this title is carried by Prince Edward, the 37-year-old uncle. Prince Harry, on the other hand, is the Duke of Sussex. This title was given to him by his grandmother as a gift for his marriage to Meghan.

Although the couple announced their retirement as senior members of the British Royal Family in early 2020 and resigned from all royal duties and functions, they are still allowed to call themselves the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. In the United States, however, where Harry and Meghan live with their two children, Archie and Lilibet, these terms are less common. The royal should hardly blame Omar Hilale for the small misstep.
