Happy life without Royal titles

  • Print


Less than two years after the Royal wedding, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they would step back from The Firm and split their time between North America and the UK.

Mail Online :
The Queen offered Prince Harry and Meghan Markle the freedom to live without titles ahead of their wedding, but the Suits star was 'happy' to stop acting and become a working royal, a source has claimed.  
A source told The Sun that before the royal wedding in May 2018, the Queen, 93, 'made the offer' to Meghan, 38, which would 'give her freedom to continue her acting career'.
The Queen reportedly hoped it would help give the actress a 'smooth transition' into royal life - but the Suits star was said to have turned down the offer because she 'wanted to become a working member of the royal family.'
Last week, Buckingham Palace announced that from the spring Harry and Meghan will stop using their HRH titles and withdraw from royal duties, including official military appointments.
The source revealed that

from the early days, the Queen worked to ensure a 'smooth transition' for Meghan.
As part of the transition into The Firm, the Monarch reporetedly offered Meghan and Prince Harry, 35, the freedom to live without Duke and Duchess titles.
They went on to say that officials had become frustrated that the couple now feel they were pressured into quitting royal life.
Prince Harry was given the highest rank in the British peerage and Meghan became the first Duchess of Sussex when they married in May 2018.
All royal titles are given by the Queen and it was up to the monarch to choose which one to bestow on her grandson and his wife in May 2018.   
On Saturday Buckingham Palace announced that from the spring Harry and Meghan will stop using their HRH titles and withdraw from royal duties, including official military appointments.
