Queen ‘has no desire’ to pressure Harry and Meghan to drop their royal titles

The Queen has no desire to pressure Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to stop using their titles, according to reports.

Buckingham Palace is said to be aware of how badly it went down with the public after Princess Diana was stripped of her HRH title following her divorce from Prince Charles.

Harry and Meghan agreed last year they would put their HRH titles into ‘abeyance’, meaning they would still exist but not be used.

But they still remain the Duke and Duchess of Sussex under the ‘Megxit’ deal, struck after they stepped back as senior working royals.

Palace insiders have suggested they should stop calling themselves the duke and duchess following Harry’s latest criticism of the Royal Family, according to the Mail on Sunday.

Harry, 36, attacked his dad Charles’s parenting skills during his appearance on the Armchair Expert podcast last week.

One source told the newspaper the couple should become known as just Harry and Meghan.

The insider said: “They should put the titles into abeyance, so they still exist, but are not used, like they agreed to do with their HRHs.

“They should just become Harry and Meghan. And if they refuse to do that, they have to explain why not.”

According to the Times, there is no desire from the monarch or any other influential figure within the palace to pressure the couple to stop using the titles.

The agreement they would keep the Sussex titles is reportedly still in place.

Since the couple stepped back from their royal duties, the Queen, 95, has repeatedly said they remain “much loved family members”.

And Meghan, 39, has previously expressed her admiration for Her Majesty.

In the podcast interview, Harry suggested “pain and suffering” had been passed on to him from his family.

He said he will “make sure” he doesn’t pass it on to his children.

The Duke said: “Certainly, when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain and suffering because of the pain and suffering that perhaps my father or parents suffered, I’m gonna make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on."
