Royal Family LIVE: Prince Harry to keep title and return for ceremonies claims expert – Express

Loading ....

Celebrity biographer Sean Smith has claimed Meghan and Harry will never lose their royal titles and will return to the UK for official ceremonies.

He told Express.co.uk: “Harry will remain the Duke of Sussex, I don’t think there is any doubt of that.

“Because when Prince Charles becomes King he will be the son of the King.

“And he will, they both will, be back for ceremonial things in this country.”

When asked whether if he thought the couple would keep their Sussex titles, Mr Smith said: “Yes I do. But I don’t think it matters if they don’t.”

Over the last few months calls for the couple to be stripped of their titles have increased, due to their controversial comments and solo visits.

Meghan and Harry sparked outrage when they urged Americans to vote in the US Presidential election and carried out a private visit at a LA cemetery to mark Armistice Day last week.

Several commentators, including GMB presenter Piers Morgan, have said the Queen needs to strip the pair of their Sussex titles.

In March 2021, the Queen will review the terms of Meghan and Harry’s split from the Royal Family.

She could decide to take away their official titles.

9.27am update: Queen compared to military armed forces for her daily sacrifice in service to the UK

Queen Elizabeth II’s sacrifice in service to the UK has been compared to military uniforms by a royal expert.

Every single item in the Queen’s outfit is part of her royal uniform – and the hat is the one bearing the most significance, according to royal expert Robert Lacey.

The royal commentator provided his thoughts on the monarch’s style to Elizabeth Holmes for her book HRH: So Many Thoughts on Royal Style.

Speaking about the Queen’s typical outfit, Mr Lacey compared the Queen’s colourful hats, which she always wears when she is carrying out a royal duty outside her residences, to military ones.

He told the fashion journalist in her book: “Very few modern women wear a hat as part of their work uniform, aside from perhaps members of the armed forces.

“It’s a reminder that the Queen is indentured to a service, to a job.”

Hours after announcing his wedding plans to the world, William was pressed on whether becoming a dad was part of his vision.

“But obviously we want a family, so we’ll have to start thinking about that.”
