Prince Harry’s six-word reason he and Meghan won’t give up royal titles

Prince Harry has a simple response as to why he and Meghan Markle are still using their royal titles.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex walked away from the Firm in early 2020 but the pair have so far continued to use the official monikers, despite distancing themselves from their relatives as much as possible.

Some fans and critics have even called for the couple to be stripped of the titles, granted to them on their wedding day by the late Queen Elizabeth II, as they no longer carry out official duties – and following the pair's rampant royal-bashing.

Harry was even asked about the controversy directly in an interview with Anderson Cooper while promoting his memoir, Spare, with the US TV host probing why he and Meghan had not given up their official royal credentials.

In response, the Duke of Sussex issued a simple six-word answer, retorting: "And what difference would that make?"

While Harry and Meghan are seemingly in no hurry to ditch their royal titles, the Firm are said to have discussed stripping the pair of the honours "at the highest level".

It will come as no surprise to Sussex critics – the pair's post-royal career to date has predominantly relied on criticising the institution, with their Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan seeing the duo accuse the pair of leaking stories about them and Harry's autobiography also making some unpleasant claims.

However it has now been rumoured Harry and his dad, King Charles III, are hoping to engage in "peace talks" which could see the sparring duo patch up old wounds.

The alleged discussion is rumoured to be scheduled for September 17, after Harry's Invictus Games, with one insider revealing the monarch could have a very specific demand for his youngest son.

Speaking to OK!, the source said: "King Charles is due to return to London from Balmoral in the middle of September which ties with the end of Harry’s Invictus Games trip to Düsseldorf.

"The King has a rescheduled official visit to France on September 20 so has a few days to spare in London to meet with his son. Staff are trying to fine-tune the details as we speak."

If the pair do meet up, it will be the first time Harry has seen a member of the Royal Family since the publication of his memoir.
