King Charles is willing to strip Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of their royal titles if the couple’s Netflix show and memoirs are found to be too damaging to the royal family.
His Majesty is said to also be unafraid to stretch his punishment to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s two children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, and remove their titles too, reports The Mirror.
Royal author Tom Bower, the writer behind ‘Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between Windsors’, has been critical of the pair in the past and believes their upcoming projects could be consequential.

The author believes Markle will not back down should the Sussex’s royal titles be removed.
He also explained to The Mirror that the relationship between senior royals during the Queen’s funeral proceedings was ‘fragile’.
However, Bower states that King Charles did try to ‘defuse’ the situation rather than go straight into stripping their titles.
He explained: “He has made various threats to Meghan and Harry and warned that them if they go ahead they will find themselves ostracised in a way they cannot believe. And so they are worried.
“First of all, I do not think their children will get titles if they go ahead and slander the royal family.
“But they have also got to consider their own titles, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, could be taken away by Charles if they misbehave.
“That is something Meghan and Harry are very worried about because after all although she pours dirt on the royal family the whole time, whenever she introduces herself she says: ‘I am Meghan, Duchess Of Sussex’.”

Bower then gave an insight into how ‘angry’ the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were at the Queen’s funeral and that Prince Harry is committed to releasing his memoir.
“In the end, they left Britain after the Queen’s funeral feeling as angry as ever, if not more,” Mr Bower remarked.
“Because they had been excluded from various events especially a reception for the heads of states, (Harry) not been allowed to wear his uniform and there was no reconciliation between them and Kate and William.
“The Sussexes released a photo of themselves to media, hours after the King unveiled his snaps with William and Kate.
“This was the resumption of hostilities from Montecito to the royal family.”
Bower, who was speaking on Sirius XM, called the photo an ‘absolutely a middle finger’ to King Charles.
He commented: “It was a photo to say we can exist and flourish without you lot.
”Meghan is a fighter, and she is fighting again now.
“Harry is brainwashed, would be the politest way of saying it, into going along with it. He thinks he has been badly treated.
“But there is no doubt they are a great threat to the royal family.
“Harry is a very complicated, depressed, unintelligent man who is seeking a role and has really nobody on whom he could rely, which in the end is where Meghan stepped in. A needy man met a woman who helped him with his needs.”

He then added that Prince Harry and Markle will always push the narrative against them and they view themselves as the targets.
“She [Markle] always wanted celebrity but wants to control the narrative,” Bower said.
“Anyone that gets in her way with her is ghosted and attacked. Harry has become hypersensitive, and hates the media but seeks approval from the media by going on Netflix, Spotify or Apple TV. The contradiction is enormous.
“They needed money, fame and to be able to tell their story on their terms.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex came to the UK prior to the Queen’s death for charity work, however, they stayed in the country for the 10-day mourning period.
It is believed they returned to their home in California the day after her funeral, according to National World.
