Prince Harry and Meghan Markle risk losing their titles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex for breaking their Megxit deal with Sunday night’s Oprah TV tell-all, according to reports.
Royal courtiers met last week to discuss stripping the couple’s titles and tearing up the “Sandringham summit” agreement made a year ago involving their exit from life as senior royals, sources told The Times of London.
“I don’t think that after this interview, anything is off the table, to be honest,” one source in the royal household told the UK paper, referring to the potential stripping of the pair’s titles.
Such a move would be “a big step,” the source conceded — stressing that it highlights how “cheesed off” Queen Elizabeth II is over the “circus” around the Oprah Winfrey special airing on CBS at 8 p.m.
One source told the UK paper that Harry and Meghan are “playing with fire” with the “very high-stakes” interview.
Still, another source close to the queen who confirmed Palace discussions over the upcoming TV chat insisted that “the titles are not up for debate,” the Times stressed.
One source said, “The response will depend very much on if they go after the institution or the people” in the royal family.
“If they go after the people, the people will come out swinging. The institution can take the blows, the people cannot,” the source said.
“The institution is not at war, the Sussexes are at war.”
