Meghan Markle and Prince Harry should lose all titles, most Brits say

A new poll has revealed that most Brits believe that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle should be stripped of their royal titles.

The couple, who are officially known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have made a home for themselves in America after they decided last year to step down from royal duties.

However, a poll from Deltapoll shows that more than 1,500 people polled believe there is unfinished business when it comes to their royal names.

Deltapoll interviewed 1,590 adults of varying ages between March 31 and April 1 to gather their thoughts and feelings on the couple, reports the Mirror.

The poll was conducted around three weeks after the explosive Oprah Winfrey interview in which a number of accusations by Harry and Meghan were made.

But a margin of more than two to one – 58 per cent against 23 per cent – believe they should be stripped of their royal titles, according to the results.

However, 31 per cent of those polled believe their decisions have made no difference to the reputation of the monarchy, while 9% believe they improved the reputation.

But nearly two-thirds of baby boomers think they have caused damage compared to fewer than four in 10 millennials.

Senior Palace courtiers were said to have held crisis talks over whether Harry and Meghan should lose their titles in light of the tell-all chat, according to reports early last month.

It came weeks after war veteran Harry learned he had lost all of his royal patronages, including his cherished captain general of the Royal Marines.

Taking away the dukedom would, in effect, go against last year's Sandringham agreement with the Queen after the couple both announced they would be stepping down.

At the meeting, courtiers were said to be keen for Harry to retain the right to being addressed as HRH, which was conveyed on him at birth.

That was previously taken away from his mum Diana, Princess of Wales, after her divorce from Prince Charles.

If it is taken away Harry would also be removed as sixth in line to the throne, which would require legislation.

The move would have to be approved by the Queen herself.
