Meghan and Harry should lose HRH styles – ‘Strip them down to Mr and Mrs!’

Readers voted in our poll on the anniversary of Megxit on whether the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should be stripped of their HRH styles. Some 99 percent of respondents said yes, while just one percent disagreed.

As part of Megxit, Harry and Meghan have retained their HRH styles but do not use them. 

They continue to be referred to as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex without the HRH.

Commenting on the poll, one reader fumed: “Strip them down to Mrs and Mr.”

Another blasted: “Definitely. Take the ducal title while they’re at it.

“While they are perhaps obeying the letter of the law by not using the HRH, there is no doubt they are using the ducal title for their own profit.”

A third insisted: “They should lose their duke and duchess titles as well.”

Another wrote: “Of course the infamous couple should lose the HRH – and absolutely everything else from the Dukedom to Prince Henry and his offspring’s places in the line of succession.

“Otherwise their continued titles and places in the line imperil the Monarchy and the stability of the UK itself.
