The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been the topics of strong and relentless inspection since, well, they first got together.
They quit their royal duties that have provoked a petition from royal traditionalists to quit a couple of their titles. The petition has been signed by over 45,000 signatures that asking Harry and Meghan to voluntarily give up their royal titles.
The formal movement is being led by socialite Lady Colin Campbell, an outspoken critic of the couple and author of the book Meghan and Harry: The Real Story, as per newidea.
It is believed that they are “damaging the institution of the monarchy” Lady Colin is asking the royal couple to relinquish their titles as “the right thing to do”, saving The Queen from having to strip them of their namesakes.
The change.org petition reads: “The purpose is to invite Prince Harry to voluntarily ask The Queen to put his royal style, titles and rank into abeyance, thereby freeing him from the diplomatic, political and constitutional constraints that are an inevitable part of royal rank, and further freeing him from the constitutional conflicts which his beliefs are creating, with all their implications at home and abroad, in particular in the United Kingdom and the United States of America, where his articulated beliefs are in open conflict with the accepted tenets of both the United Kingdom and American Constitutions.”
In January 2020, an official statement made one royal family’s website, it was announced that Harry and Meghan were stepping back from their royal duties – a move known as “Megxit”. “With The Queen’s blessing, the Sussexes will continue to maintain their private patronages and associations.
While they can no longer formally represent The Queen, the Sussexes have made clear that everything they do will continue to uphold the values of Her Majesty.” the statement read.
“The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family.” The press release also stipulated that Harry and Meghan would “no longer receive public funds for Royal duties”. Later, they moved to the U.S and living with the son Archie and expecting a baby girl.
