A royal expert has dismissed a new demand for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to be stripped of their titles following the Netflix show bombing. He said the “only realistic option” for people who are “in the dark” is to boycott the Sussex documentary titled Harry and Meghan.
Schofield, who runs the ToDiForDaily website, said it would be a “tough job” to strip the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their titles.
She added that the move would allow Duchess Meghan to be known as Princess Harry.
Ms Scofield’s comments came as the couple’s series sparked controversy before it even aired after two explosive trailers dropped.
A royal commentator told Express.co.uk: “Harry was born a prince and will always be the son of the King and the beloved son of Princess Diana.
“Stripping him of the title will be a difficult task and we believe Meghan will automatically become Princess Harry.
“So, technically, the two can still walk around with their royal titles and make money from it.
“I know people are mad, but their only real option is not to buy books, listen to podcasts, or stream TV shows.”
Regarding reports that Prince Joachim of Denmark is moving his family to the United States, she added: “If Danish royals Prince Joachim and Princess Marie do indeed move to the United States with their families, Harry and Meghan’s brand will be so much better. There will be no demand.
Schofield’s comments come before the first three episodes of the six-part series premiere on Netflix tomorrow and the second half next week.
Two dramatic teasers have been released ahead of the show’s launch.
In the latest trailer, the Duke of Sussex talks about a “dirty game” within the monarchy with “leaks” and “story plantings.”
“Nobody knows the complete truth. We know the complete truth.”
Billed as a “global event,” Netflix promised an “unprecedentedly detailed documentary series” in which Harry and Meghan would “share opposite sides of their famous love story.”
The streaming giant added, “We’ve never seen one of the most discussed couples in history.”
It said the show “explores the secret days of their early courtship and the challenges that led to them feeling compelled to step away from their full-time roles at the institution.”
The series features commentary from friends and family, as well as historians discussing the state of the British Commonwealth and the relationship between the royal family and the press.
“The series not only shines a light on one couple’s love story, but also portrays our world and how we treat each other.”
Directed by two-time Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Liz Garbus.
Harry and Meghan signed a lucrative deal with Netflix after stepping down from royal duties for a new life in the US in 2020.
The Duke of Sussex is embroiled in a rift with his brother, Prince William, and his relationship with his father, King Charles, is broken.
