The general public wants the Sussexes to renounce their titles or in another case, they want Buckingham Palace to strip Harry and Meghan of their titles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
They said: “The best thing to happen would be for Harry to voluntarily renounce all his royal titles – which one might expect him to do since he appears to hate the monarchy and his family so much.”
An online reports where 9,700 readers have voted the Duke and Duchess “off with their titles”. The result is an overwhelming result of 98 per cent.
The titles were bestowed by the late Queen, Harry’s grandmother, when the couple married in 2018, along with his subsidiary titles as Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel.
Meanwhile, royal experts have pointed out a constitutional problem. They warned that if the Sussexes’ titles as duke and duchess were revoked, Harry would still be entitled to be addressed as Prince Harry, as he is a prince by birth.
That situation would see Meghan automatically become Princess Harry (or strictly Princess Henry), which one royal insider said ‘she might even prefer’.
The couple retain but no longer use their HRH titles after they quit as working royals, but Harry nevertheless remains fifth in line to the throne.
Last year, Prince Harry said of his memoir, which is due to be published next month: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.”
The issue is like this with Harry as he has called his forthcoming memoir Spare and his new Netflix series is entitled simply Harry And Meghan.
The heat is expected to further intensify after the debut of their upcoming Netflix series.
