Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal titles have come under scrutiny since their alleged pal, Omid Scobie, targeted the Royal family in his latest release, Endgame.
Speaking on the matter, author and Vanity Fair Royal Editor Katie Nicholl discussed how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have “divorced” the Royal family but still won’t give up their titles.
She told Isabel Webster of GB News that the California-based Royal couple would be nothing if they are stripped off of their titles as just Harry and Meghan do not “carry the same amount of weight."
"Princess Diana had her HRH stripped from her for far fewer transgressions. You could argue she never brought any sort of allegations like this upon the Royal Family,” Webster said.
In response, Nicholl weighed in, "No, she divorced the Royal Family. And some might say that that's exactly what Harry and Meghan have done in all but name. They've upped and left.”
"And of course, you know, there's a possibility that the decision to strip them of their titles won't actually have to be made by the Royals. It may be made through the Houses of Parliament.
"We know from this couple that they will do everything possible to hold on to those titles, because without the 'Duke and Duchess' they're just Harry and Meghan, and that simply doesn't carry the same amount of weight,” she added.
