In latest Meghan Markle news, an author and historian has claimed the Duchess could be called ‘Princess Henry of Wales’ if she loses her royal title.

At the weekend, reports  claimed royal aides wanted Prince Harry and Meghan to give up their titles after stepping back from their senior royal roles.

The couple are still currently known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

However, Kate Williams has said if they were to lose their titles they’d be known as Prince and Princess since Harry’s Prince title cannot be removed.

“But Harry’s title of Prince cannot be removed. Thus if they were no longer Duke and Duchess, they’d be Prince and Princess.

“Which would, one might argue, be even more appealing on the world stage..”

She continued: “Meghan’s title would be Princess Henry of Wales.

“That is her title through marriage but she does not use it now due to the Sussex titles.

“But if the Sussex titles removed, she would be quickly called in general speech Princess Meghan or indeed Princess Meghan of Wales….”

Royal fans became hugely divided over the title suggestion, with some people not seeming keen.

One said: “She wouldn’t be a princess in her own right, just Princess Henry by marriage.”
