As you’re likely well aware, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have two major upcoming projects in the works: 1) Prince Harry’s hotly anticipated memoir, which is expected to drop in 2023, and 2) a Netflix docuseries that may or may not be pushed back to next year due to controversy surrounding The Crown.
And while the couple hasn’t indicated that either project will cast a negative light on the royals, Harry’s family is, as usual, spiraling. To the point where King Charles reportedly won’t grant Archie and Lilibet their prince/princess titles until after the Sussexes’ projects drop.
But according to royal expert and author Katie Nicholl, the new monarch could go one step further and strip Meghan and Harry of their titles if they “tarnish” the royals. Speaking on GB News (via The Express), Nicholl said the “issue of titles is up for discussion.” Specifically, Archie and Lilibet won’t be named prince/princess if the Sussexes are “seen to be tarnishing the institution,” and “there might be a question mark over the future of Harry and Meghan’s titles potentially if they are seen to be deliberately tarnishing the reputation of the monarchy.”
Nicholl also noted that “We could be prepared to see the King’s ruthless side. Charles is not going to stand back and let his family or the institution or the reputation of the Crown—which is everything to him—be tarnished. Certainly not by two members of the family.”
A source previously told Vanity Fair that Charles is waiting to see what happens with the memoir and docuseries before dealing with titles, explaining “It depends a lot on what happens in the coming months, particularly with Harry’s book and their TV show.”
