Prince Harry and Meghan Markle risk losing their titles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex for breaking their Megxit deal with Sunday night’s Oprah TV show, according to reports.
The royal courtiers met last week to discuss the possibility of stripping the couple of their titles and breaking the “Sandringham summit” deal made a year ago involving their exit from life as royals, sources said. to the London Times.
“I don’t think that after this interview, there is anything off the table, to be honest,” a source from the royal household told the UK newspaper, referring to the possible removal of the couple’s titles.
Such a move would be “a big step,” the source admitted, emphasizing how “angry” Queen Elizabeth II is about the “circus” surrounding the Oprah Winfrey special that airs on CBS at 8 pm.
A source told the UK newspaper that Harry and Meghan are “playing with fire” with the “high stakes” interview.
Still, another source close to the queen who confirmed the Palace’s discussions about the upcoming TV chat insisted that “the titles are not up for debate,” the Times stressed.
A source said: “The answer will largely depend on whether they persecute the institution or the people” in the royal family.
“If they go after people, people will swing out. The institution can take the blows, the people cannot, ”said the source.
“The institution is not at war, the Sussexes are at war.”
