While the royal commentator claimed Harry will not return to the UK, he also added it is a great loss for the Firm.
Overall Mr Dampier insisted the upcoming move to hand Kate his rugby patronages shows a “changing of the guard” for the Firm.
“It also highlights the reality of Prince Harry being replaced in some of the things he enjoyed, but it’s sad in that it’s taking away the things he brought to the table.

“It’s another example of the changing of the guard.
“It’s a psychological blow as it emphasises the split and it’s very much final.
“The Queen had left the door open but it’s past the point of no return – I can’t see Harry coming him back to the UK, and so yes it’s another blow, and another example of what he has given up for his new life, and what it’s cost him.
“I think Harry will be upset and will be miss being England’s rugby patron.

“But he can’t really complain because he decided to quit the UK – he can’t pick and choose the things he can do – he has made his bed and has to lie in it.”

Harry has been present at multiple games at Twickenham to watch England many times and was even seen celebrating the 2003 World Cup win in Australia with the squad.
