Advisers at Buckingham Palace asked Harry and Meghan to relinquish their royal titles as Dukes of Sussex, the Daily Mail reports.
There is a sense of “bewilderment and betrayal” inside Buckingham Palace after Harry made strong criticism of his father. The Prince said on Dax Shepard’s podcast that his father, Prince Charles, passed on to him a cycle of pain and suffering. He also talked about the few parenting skills he had as a father.
But what has also angered the Palace is that Harry, 36, referenced his grandparents, stating that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were the ones who raised Carlos so coldly. “People are horrified that he could do this to the Queen, when the Duke of Edinburgh just died,” an aide told the Daily Mail. “Dragging his grandfather into this is very shocking and disrespectful.”
“The Duke of Sussex has spent a significant amount of time emphasizing that he is no different than anyone else and attacking the institution that he claims has caused him so much pain. There is a growing feeling that if you dislike the institution so much, you shouldn’t have the degrees, ”said the source.
The Palace suggests Harry and Meghan leave the titles on hold
After the countless criticisms of Harry and Meghan towards English royalty, advisers suggest they leave the titles in a “so-called suspense”. “They should leave the titles in abeyance, so that they continue to exist, but are not used, as they agreed to do with those of His Royal Highness. They should become Harry and Meghan. And if they refuse to do so, they have to explain why not. “
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, renounced their titles of “His Royal Highness” when they left their royal duties and moved to the United States. It is very likely that very soon they will also leave their titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
