Speculation is mounting that Charles III may strip his son Prince Harry of his royal titles. This worries Charles potentially dropping the title, as Harry and Meghan could reportedly take a blast from Harry’s upcoming memoir, Spare. However, The Express’s royal correspondent Richard Palmer has revealed that Charles does not actually have the power to strip him of his titles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
In an interview with Royal Roundup host Pandora Forsythe, Palmer said no law exists that would give Prince Charles the power to strip his son and wife of their titles.
He said such a move would be “amazing” and would require new legislation passed by Congress.
“I would be surprised if they were stripped of their titles,” Palmer said.
“I think things had to reach a terrible stage for that to happen.”

He noted that he retained his title as Duke of Windsor after Edward VIII abdicated and was reportedly collaborating with the Nazis.
The Express’ royal correspondent said, “If Edward and Wallis Simpson weren’t stripped of their titles, it’s hard to imagine that happening to Harry and Meghan.
“It’s actually very difficult to strip someone of their principality at this point, and in reality it’s more or less impossible.
“Laws may be enacted to change this, and that is the job of Congress, but at this time there is no law that would allow it.
“It’s not something a king can do in one stroke.”
