Queen would be ‘childish’ to strip Meghan and Harry of Sussex titles says expert

The Queen would be “childish” to strip Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles, a royal expert believes.

Her Majesty gave Prince Harry and Meghan the title of Duke and Duchess of Sussex after their 2018 wedding at St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

Following the couple's decision to step down as senior members of the Royal Family in January 2020, the couple no longer user their HRH titles, but are still formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

There have been public calls for the Queen to strip the couple of their title, but Royal author and editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, Ingrid Seward, has said she "doesn't see any point" in the couple losing their titles.

Ms Seward told Daily Star Online: "I don’t see the point in Price Harry or Meghan losing them.

"The Queen is a very forgiving person and deeply believes in forgiveness, and I don’t think she should or would take them.

"She would be totally happy to accept them back in the Royal fold, but it isn’t going to happen, we all know that now, but she would.

"Prince Philip has just washed his hands of it, there is very little they can do."

In recent weeks, Meghan and Harry have faced criticism for using the titles after the pair spoke publicly about the 2020 United States Election.

One U.S. republican congressman, Jason Smith, even went as far as to demand the British government put a stop to Prince Harry and Meghan and accused them of using their “foreign titles” to “campaign against President Trump.”

Taking to Twitter, Rep. Smith urged the "British Government to put a stop to it" and claimed not doing so is "condoning interference in the 2020 United States Presidential Election.”

Harry and Meghan have denied any involvement in the U.S. election, and said the Time 100 speech didn’t show any political affiliation.

Ms Seward added: "As for the titles, it would be childish to take them away, the Queen gave them the titles as a wedding present.

"I think it is up to them to say we won’t use them, keep them, but stop using them.

"That is there choice and there is nothing anyone can do about it, or will do about it until at this second.

"It will be reviewed in the spring, if anything happens it will be then, but I don’t think it will."
