Iain MacMarthanne, a constitutional expert, confided in the columns of L’express this Wednesday, July 28. He mentioned a radical decision that Prince Charles could take.
He plays with fire. In January 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their intention to leave the royal family. Both moved to the United States, away from the media spotlight. A year later, they made many confidences in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, which caused a lot of talk.
More recently, Prince Harry announced the publication of his memoirs for late 2022. While it follows the low blows, it seems that Prince Charles could soon make a drastic decision. According to the information Iain MacMarthanne, a constitutional expert who confided in the columns of L’express this Wednesday, July 28, the brother of Prince William could lose his last prestigious privileges.
Indeed, the former husband of Lady Diana could “suddenly withdraw the royal titles of his son”, he said before specifying: “However, he must be king. The monarch is free to strip anyone of their royal title and heritage,” he said. If Prince Charles removes Prince Harry, he will be a normal citizen with a less prestigious name: Henry Charles Albert David Mountbatten-Windsor. As a reminder, when the royal family had taken the decision to remove her titles to Lady Diana, it was very badly received and described as an “unhealthy and malicious” act. Will Prince Harry have the same fate?
The announcement of Prince Harry‘s memoirs is a new bomb within the royal family. In addition, they could compromise the future of Prince William. In the columns of the Express, Ingrid Seward, an expert on royalty, said: “William is probably the one who will fare the worst because there is tension between him and Harry. Basically, if Harry says inappropriate things about the monarchy, William’s future is at stake.
” As a reminder, Prince Harry’s brother will be called to reign on the British throne after the death or abdication of Prince Charles. For his part, Meghan Markle‘s husband is only sixth in the line of succession, and he will remain so if his father does not decide to remove him along with his royal titles. Indeed, Prince Charles is not satisfied with the life path taken by his son.
“He thinks Prince Harry is oddly determined to cause harm to his family,” a close source told The Mirror a few days ago. “Prince Charles is concerned about the path chosen by Harry and thinks that the constant attacks and hurtful comments of his son towards him are completely unfair,” said the same source. An opinion shared by Elizabeth II, who could in turn take a radical decision by prohibiting the Duke of Sussex and his wife to join the rest of the family for his jubilee next year.
Prince Harry memoirs: will Meghan Markle do the same?
Even though they have just been announced, Prince Harry‘s memoirs are already causing quite a stir. No doubt he will give himself up and make many revelations and confidences about his past. However, according to information from the site Sheknows, it seems that he is not the only one who wants to confide since Meghan Markle could also write her memoirs. “Royal observers are wondering if Markle’s memoir might be the first chapter in a pivot to her long-held political aspirations,” the media outlet says. If the information has not been confirmed by the protagonists, there is no doubt that this one will be much talked about.
