Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are at risk of a hard break from the Royal Family in a move that could cost them their royal titles, according to new reports.
According to The Express, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s alleged Royal break comes amid apparent tensions stemming from Netflix’s “The Crown,” which dramatizes the oft-sensational personal lives of the British Royal Family. Meghan and Harry signed a publicized deal with the streaming giant earlier this year.
The Royal Family is now undertaking a review of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s deal to leave the Royal Family — dubbed “Megxit” in reporting.
Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and Prince William are set to review the terms of the break in March 2021.
MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry could be facing a irreversible exit from the Royal Family when their Megxit deal is reviewed in March, it has been claimed.
Royal experts are claiming that after the review concludes, the world could see Meghan and Harry break off entirely from the Royal Family — titles included.
“I suspect very little will change and there is no sign of Harry and Meghan wanting to return to the royal fold and all the rigmarole and responsibility that comes with that,” a commentator told The Express.
“There are two titles involved, there is the HRH status and then there is the actual title of Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” royal author Robert Lacey told the outlet
“Obviously if the review in March concludes they can’t stay working royals, then it’s quite likely they would lose or forfeit their HRH styles.”
In March, a year will have passed since Meghan Markle and Harry officially settled in the Los Angeles area.
The report of Meghan and Harry’s royal break comes at the height of tensions for the British Royal Family with the newest season of “The Crown” dropping on Netflix, which many monarchical defenders claim paints the royals in a harsh light.
According to The Sun, The Crown — which is confirmed for two more seasons — could be extended to cover the adult lives of Princes Harry and William after a season focusing on the life of the late Princess Diana.
“I think originally it was reported that it would stop before William and Harry become adults, I’ve certainly heard there is talk within Netflix about the possibility that the show might be extended,” “Finding Freedom” author Omid Scobie said.
British Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden praised the drama as a “beautifully produced work of fiction” and seemed to stress that Netflix should add a disclaimer noting that it is “fiction” inspired by history.
“Without this, I fear a generation of viewers who did not live through these events may mistake fiction for fact.”
Amid reports of a hard break with the Royal Family in March of next year, Meghan and Harry had already stopped using their formal titles following the separation.
According to The BBC, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had pledged to repay £2.4m of taxpayer money for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their UK family home. They claim they have already repaid the monies.
They had also already said they will also no longer formally represent the Queen and will not use their HRH titles.
“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family,” the Queen had said in a previous statement.
The Queen said following “many months of conversations and more recent discussions” she was “pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family”.
