Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped down from the royal family earlier this year, but were allowed to retain their official Sussex titles. However, their recent comments on the US election and their solo appearance for Remembrance Sunday have sparked controversy and prompted Express.co.uk readers to call for the couple to be stripped of their royal titles.
The overwhelming majority of readers believed the pair should lose their official titles, with 98% (7,693 people) voting “yes”.
Only three percent (242 people) voted “no”.
Less than one percent of readers (56 people) voted “not sure”.
Readers then took advantage of the comments to explain why they believed Meghan and Harry should lose their official titles.
One person simply wrote, “Yes, the sooner the better.”
While another reader went into more detail and suggested that the Sussexes could mean the end of the monarchy if they end up keeping their titles.
