The journalist who introduced the Duke of Sussex yesterday as “Harry only” at a conference in Edinburgh, said she thinks “he doesn’t need a title to be a big problem.”
Former labor adviser Ayesha Hazarika said yesterday during the sustainable travel event in the Scottish capital: “He has made it clear that we should all call him Harry. So ladies and gentlemen, please give Harry a warm Scottish welcome. ”
Mrs. Hazarika said he was “warm and relaxed” and “didn’t look like a man with fear” about the debate about his and Meghan’s titles after their decision to resign as working royals.
She told Good Morning Britain today: “He was very warm, relaxed and seemed very focused on the reason he was up there.
“He was pretty relaxed. One thing that struck me was that he was very informal. He walked around freely with all the other delegates.
‘I got the impression that he is very focused on what he wants to do. He was also quite challenging. I didn’t feel like he thought ‘this has all been a nightmare, I’m going to hide.
“From the response he received and the way he behaved, he clearly doesn’t need a title to be a big problem.”

Harry flew on a commercial flight from his new home in Canada before boarding a LNER train from London to Edinburgh to attend yesterday’s Travalyst conference.
The 35-year-old was there for a ‘working summit’ with delegates from the new travel organization in Edinburgh, who is planning to create a system where users can track their CO2 emissions.
Mrs. Hazarika explained today: “I was a little nervous about how to introduce him. It has been a huge fandangle about his title.
“I said” what do you call him? “and they said, just call him Harry. “
She added that “while there are people who don’t like him,” Meghan and Harry “have a huge platform.”
Presenter Susanna Reid replied: ‘I’m not sure if they don’t like it. But Harry is talking about sustainable travel, so instead of flying in, why not go to the skype conference? “

The journalist answered: ‘First of all, the conference is about four pillars of travel, not just about aviation.

“Yes, he flew here from Canada, but he got on the train.
‘We are a generation where we fly, we fly all over the world to see our loved ones, for work. That is not really going to change much.
“The question is how can we mitigate that?”
Susanna then investigated whether Harry had mentioned the debacle about the royal title of him and Meghan.
But Mrs. Hazarika simply said, “No, not at all.”
She added: ‘There were tons of experts from the travel industry there, they were just happy to see him.
“He only asked us to call him Harry. He wanted to be accessible and informal and to ensure that people could come and talk to him.
“It was probably a nod to what you’re talking about, but with the reaction he received, the way he behaved, he clearly doesn’t need a title to be a big problem.”
Meghan and Harry will no longer work royals from March 31, or “Megxit” as it has become known.
They issued a statement about the use of their ‘Sussex Royal’ brand after questions were raised as to whether they could continue to use it after retirement.
But their statement, branded “rude to the queen” by Meghan’s estranged father Thomas Markle and royal experts, claimed that the monarchy has “no jurisdiction” over the use of the term “royal” outside the UK.
