在英國王室宣布哈利夫婦退出高級王室成員、不得再使用「殿下」頭銜後,「薩塞克斯公爵」哈利在19日晚上在倫敦一場慈善餐會上,首度打破沉默,表示這結果令他感到極度悲傷,他強調,這並不是一個輕易就能做出的決定,是經過這麼多年的挑戰以及長達數月的會談,「我知道我並非總能做到正確,但到目前為止,確實沒有其他選擇。」

綜合外電報導,在哈利與梅根片面宣布退出王室後,英國王室18日發出聲明稿,指哈利夫婦自今年春天起將不再使用「殿下」頭銜,不再正式代表女王執行王室任務、不再獲得公共經費。

哈利王子沉默一天後,19日在倫敦一場為非洲愛滋病童募款的慈善活動上,首度打破沉默,替自己講話。

他強調,英國是他的家,也是他愛的地方,這點永遠不會改變。「我希望你們盡可能地從我這裡知道真相,並不是作為王子或是公爵的身分,就只是哈利,這個你們當中許多人過去35年來看著他長大的人。」

他形容梅根與他有相同的價值觀,也是他深愛的女人。「我們(他與梅根)都竭盡全力並自豪地為這個國家服務。由於這些原因,這使我感到非常悲傷。」「(離開王室)這並不是我輕易做出的決定,是經過這麼多年的挑戰、長達數月的會談。我知道我並非總能做到正確,但是到目前為止,確實沒有其他選擇。」

「我想說的是,我們沒有離開。我們希望繼續為女王、英聯邦和我的軍事協會服務,但沒有公共資金。不幸的是,那是不可能實現的。我接受了這一點,知道這不會改變我的身份或忠誠程度。」

以下為哈利王子原文:

"Good evening, and thank you for being here for Sentebale, a charity me and Prince Seeiso created back in 2006 to honour my mother's legacy in supporting those affected by HIV and Aids.

"Before I begin, I must say that I can only imagine what you may have heard or perhaps read over the last few weeks...

"So, I want you to hear the truth from me, as much as I can share - not as a prince, or a duke, but as Harry, the same person that many of you have watched grow up over the last 35 years - but with a clearer perspective.

"The UK is my home and a place that I love. That will never change.

"I have grown up feeling support from so many of you, and I watched as you welcomed Meghan with open arms as you saw me find the love and happiness that I had hoped for all my life. Finally, the second son of Diana got hitched, hurray!

"I also know you've come to know me well enough over all these years to trust that the woman I chose as my wife upholds the same values as I do. And she does, and she's the same woman I fell in love with.

"We both do everything we can to fly the flag and carry out our roles for this country with pride.

"Once Meghan and I were married, we were excited, we were hopeful, and we were here to serve.

"For those reasons, it brings me great sadness that it has come to this.

"The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven't always got it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option.

"What I want to make clear is we're not walking away, and we certainly aren't walking away from you. Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible.

"I've accepted this, knowing that it doesn't change who I am or how committed I am.

"But I hope that helps you understand what it had come to, that I would step my family back from all I have ever known, to take a step forward into what I hope can be a more peaceful life.

"I was born into this life, and it is a great honour to serve my country and the Queen.

"When I lost my mum 23 years ago, you took me under your wing.

"You've looked out for me for so long, but the media is a powerful force, and my hope is one day our collective support for each other can be more powerful because this is so much bigger than just us.

"It has been our privilege to serve you, and we will continue to lead a life of service.

"It has also been a privilege to meet so many of you, and to feel your excitement for our son Archie, who saw snow for the first time the other day and thought it was bloody brilliant!

"I will always have the utmost respect for my grandmother, my commander in chief, and I am incredibly grateful to her and the rest of my family for the support they have shown Meghan and I over the last few months.

"I will continue to be the same man who holds his country dear and dedicates his life to supporting the causes, charities and military communities that are so important to me.

"Together, you have given me an education about living. And this role has taught me more about what is right and just than I could have ever imagined.

"We are taking a leap of faith - thank you for giving me the courage to take this next step."
