Senior aides at Buckingham Palace are reportedly pushing for Prince Harry to give up his title after quitting his royal duties last year.
According to Page Six, the aides are complaining. They feel it’s high time for Harry and his wife Meghan Markle to give up their royal titles.
The grumblings made their way to the Dax Shepard podcast this week. Where an inside source passed on word from the palace. There is reportedly an increasing sense of “bewilderment and betrayal” inside the palace since Harry blasted his dad, Prince Charles, by claiming the elder royal damaged him by passing down a “cycle” of “genetic pain and suffering.”
Harry also dissed his grandparents when he revealed that his father’s approach to parenting was the direct result of Prince Charles’ own upbringing by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, which angered the public.
“People are appalled that he could do this to the Queen when the Duke of Edinburgh is barely in his grave,” one aide told the Daily Mail. “To drag his grandfather into this is so shocking and disrespectful.
“The Duke of Sussex has now spent a significant amount of time emphasizing that he’s no different from anyone else and attacking the institution, which he says has caused him so much pain. There is a growing feeling that if you dislike the institution that much, you shouldn’t have the titles,” the anonymous aide said.
Another source told the Daily Mail that since the couple moved to America, “They should put the titles into abeyance, so they still exist but are not used like they agreed to do with their HRHs (His/Her Royal Highness titles). They should just become Harry and Meghan. And if they refuse to do that, they have to explain why not.”
