Piers Morgan calls for Meghan and Harry to be stripped of their royal titles


Piers Morgan called on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to be stripped of their royal titles after Meghan weighed in on the upcoming US election.

On Thursday, the Duchess appeared as a special guest at the ‘When All Women Vote’ online event to encourage more people to vote.

During her appearance, Meghan said those who did not vote in the election were ‘accomplices’ and, while she did not endorse any particular candidate, she said:’ We all know what is at stake. this year”.

“We are voting to honor those who have come before us and to protect those who have come after us… that’s what community is and that is precisely the purpose of this election,” Meghan explained.

“You are equally engaged and motivated to see the change we all need and deserve. This fight is worth fighting and we must all mobilize to make our voices heard.

She continued, “If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. If you are complacent, you are complicit.

“We can make a difference in this election and we will make a difference in this election.”

While UK law does not prohibit royalty from voting, it is considered unconstitutional for them to do so and the Queen is politically neutral.

Because of this, Morgan saw Meghan’s comments regarding the US election as a violation of royal protocol and called on the Duke and Duchess to be stripped of their royal titles.

“The Queen must strip the Sussexes of their titles,” he wrote on Twitter Friday evening.

“They can’t remain royals and talk about foreign elections in such a blatantly partisan way.”

When one person pointed out that Meghan was American and agreed not to use the title of Royal Highness, Morgan replied, “The last time I checked she still calls herself the Duchess of Sussex.”

He later added: ‘She can do what she loves, she just can’t make any politically partisan statements while still being Duchess of Sussex.

“Members of the royal family are not allowed to do this. If Meghan and Harry really want to be ‘free’ from royal duty and rules, they should stop trading royal titles.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down from their roles as royals in March and now live in the United States with their son Archie, although they still remain royals.

Speaking to the 19th online news site last week, Meghan urged Americans to register to vote and remarked of Harry: “My husband, for example. He never got to vote, and I think it’s such an interesting thing to say that the right to vote is not a privilege, it is a right in itself.

Earlier this year, Morgan admitted his criticism of Meghan on Good Morning Britain and his social media account had gone “too far”.

In an interview with Le Sunday Times, the presenter addressed his controversial outbursts against the Duchess, saying, “I think that’s a perfectly fair criticism. It’s probably not wise, if you’re a columnist, to make things too personal.

“Did I take it a little too far?” Probably. Do I think this will govern and temper my way of talking about it in the future? Absolutely. ”

The independent has contacted a representative of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for comment.
