Ever since the couple decided to come clean, and made it very clear that they needed to 'vent' with Oprah Winfrey in a recent interview for television, Queen Elizabeth has been said to be angry and sad about what Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had to say regardind their experience in their royal roles, and subsequently stepping down from then and moving to the US.
Several media outlets have made remarks that, even if The Queen has a slight intention to slam the door on Harry, after all the tea he has spilled, she might never do that because the consequences of those actions could be catastrophic;according to some royal commentators, not only the Queen could be perceived globally as some petty and vindictive, but turns out if she decides to take action and shut every window on Prince Harry, Meghan Markle could end up becoming a Princess.
Or so has said a royal specialist, who went on to comment that any move made by the royal monarchy to strip the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their titles following their attacks on the royal family, could have a very unexpected outcome for some royal members. Consequences that definitely nobody could see coming.
Had the Queen decided to go ahead and do it, by making the couple give up their Sussex titles, it could end up being a boon for Harry and Meghan. They could relax and enjoy a wave of PR martyrdom, strengthing their anti-establishment position while being portrayed to the public as a couple able to “speak the truth” for everyone.
Thinking of a scenario in which Meghan and Harry were no longer able to use their Sussex titles, they still have his princely status to fall back on. He will always be Prince Henry of Wales officially; which makes her right to style herself as Princess Henry of Wales; the same way the Queen's cousin Prince Michael of Kent and his wife Princess Michael of Kent.
Is Lilibet Diana a Princess?
There's another royal in town. The arrival of the newborn baby Lilibet Diana, as the fourth member of the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's family, has sparked several speculation. Sure, she shares the name of two royal icons, and is eight in line to the throne. However, that doesn't mean that the sweet baby girl automatically receives a title.
It was way back in 1917, under the reign of King George V, when it was established that great grandchildren of the monarch will not automatically be a prince or a princess. This, of course, means that Harry and Meghan's kids do not have their titles yet. However, when Prince Charles becomes King, they will move up the ladder and from being monarch's great grandchildren, they will become monarch's grandchildren, thus being able to claim their titles then.
