Meghan Markle and Prince Harry show zero intention of letting royal titles go

The controversial Duke and Duchess of Sussex show “no signs” of relinquishing their royal titles, despite jacking in their jobs as working royals nearly three years ago, a leading critic has said.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left the UK to start a new life in California a few years ago, and have faced calls ever since to give up their official royal titles.

And despite constantly being labelled as outcasts, as well as being forced to take a backseat to more senior royals including brother Prince William and wife Kate Middleton on several occasions in the last 12 months, it appears that they are going to keep their titles for a long time yet.

Prince Harry is also expected to continue to prolong the brotherly Royal rift with the imminent release of tell-all memoir Spare in January.

Writing for news.com.au, long-time critic Daniela Elser said: “The Duke and Duchess seem to have no problem lobbing brickbats at Buckingham Palace when they fancy (or when the recording lights are on) but have shown zero intention of letting go of their royal status.

“Harry and Meghan might have left the House of Windsor and walked away from palace life to chance it in the big wide world but they have done so while maintaining a vice-like grip on their royal credentials and titles.

“These days, the couple are not known as Harry and Meghan Mountbatten-Windsor, two proudly untitled content creators from Montecito getting by on their wits and creative ability.

“Rather, nearly three years on from their melodramatic exit, they still use their titles day in and day out. There has never been a single murmur suggesting they might consider otherwise.

“It would have been to their eternal credit and only bolstered their moral and intellectual position if, in the days after their 2020 Megxit bombshell, they had also announced they would no longer be deploying their titles.”

The pair will not be returning to the UK this Christmas to spend time with the family, despite it being the first since Her Majesty The Queen died earlier this year, either – which could possibly have been a chance to discuss their Royal titles.
