Genuine question I know she's the Queen, but, is it her responsibility (within her gift) to bin Harry off on the RL's behalf? She might chose to 'demote' the guy and stop his pocket money but surely it would be up to the individual organization and Harry to decide whether they want to sever ties?

Rimmer is hardly going to go down that route as it could scupper his knighthood

I think they can do whatever they want.
They already operate above and outside the law.

I think it would be a good idea if the RL retained his role and invited him to various key games. Good for sticking two fingers at the media/ establishment and good for helping to move the country into the 21st century.


Genuine question, does he even have any interest in Rugby League?

Did he have pre-existing interest in the sport, almost certainly not. But did he find a new found respect for it, then I'd say yes as do most people who get involved. It wouldn't be bad for publicity to ask him to still by our patron or contrive an honoury position for him. It would keep the tabloid numpties vaguely interested.

Young Harry seemed to enjoy watching Wire beat Saints. Perhaps Phil is being lined up for the job.

Well his big brother looks like he could be installed. Theoretically a better ‘honour’ for the game but I doubt William will bring as much energy to the role. Good to see the RLWC mentioned on the Lords too.

I agree.
Regardless of how he is treated by his family, he will remain a high profile figure but, whether he would really want to be involved in RL is another matter altogether
