Sharing is Caring

King Charles of Great Britain has announced that he will be the next Captain General of the Royal Marines. This is largely an honorary military role that has been stripped from Prince Harry following his exit from the royal family.


Queen Elizabeth removed the title in 2020 from Prince Harry following his exit with Meghan as working royals and migrated to California.


Rumours were abound that Princess Anne would be given the role but now King Charles III is the new holder.


Prince Harry was appointed the by Queen Elizabeth into the position of Captain General in December 2017. He took over from Prince Philip his grandfather who had held the position for 64 years until he retired.



‘It is the greatest possible pleasure to assume the role of your Captain General. I am exceptionally proud to follow in the footsteps of so many members of my family over the last three-and-a-half centuries, all of whom held the role with a deep sense of admiration,” King Charles sent the message to the Royal Marines as they marked their 358th birthday.

‘The Royal Marines have a distinguished and unparallel history, both on land and at sea. I draw immense inspiration from your courage, determination, self-discipline and remarkable capacity to endure in the most extreme environments.


‘I feel greatly honoured to become part of the Corps Family and very much look forward to meeting many of you in the near future. In the meantime, this comes with my heartfelt and special wishes for a very happy 358th birthday. Per Mare, Per Terram.’


Prince Harry also stepped down from other roles such as Honorary Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Naval Commands’ Small Ships and Diving as well as Honorary Air Force Commandant of the Royal Air Force Base Hanington.
