Meghan Markle and Prince Harry just gave an explosive interview with Oprah, where truly no subject was off the table. And now, the Times of London (via Page Six) is reporting that the palace is considering stripping Meghan and Harry of their duke and duchess titles.
“I don’t think that after this interview, anything is off the table, to be honest,” a source said, adding that revoking Meghan and Harry’s titles would be “a big step” but that’s literally how “cheesed off” the Queen is. (Cheesed off!)
However, another source close to Her Majesty said a title change is “not up for debate,” although there will definitely be palace discussions about the interview. Ahead of the tell-all, one insider said, “The response will depend very much on if they go after the Institution or the people. They added, “If they go after the people, the people will come out swinging. The Institution can take the blows; the people cannot. The Institution is not at war; the Sussexes are at war.”
The Sussexes did mention several members of the royal family by name: Harry and Meghan both talked about their close relationship with the Queen, but Harry also spoke candidly about being let down by his father (who stopped taking his calls) and having “space” from his brother.
