Most Brits Think Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Should Be Stripped Of Royal Titles, Poll Reveals

Harry & Meghan's Royal Titles

Most Brits now believe that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should be stripped of their Royal titles following their explosive Oprah Winfrey interview.

A recent survey, conducted by Deltapoll, has revealed that only 28% of people believe they should remain known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The couple, who now live in America, was given those titles on their wedding day in 2018.

According to royal insiders, despite all of the drama, it is unlikely they will be stripped of them.

Earlier this year, the couple announced they were officially ‘stepping back’ from their roles as Senior Royals in a statement.

It read: “After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.

“It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.

“We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.”
