Henry Smith, the Tory MP for Crawley in West Sussex, has been asked to establish whether other politicians would support a motion to rescind the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their royal titles. A constituent has written to the MP and accused the royal couple of “bringing the country and the monarchy into disrepute” and by abusing their royal links.
David Probett, a retired employee of Natwest Bank, has written to his MP concerning Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
The letter, which he shared on his Twitter account, reads: “Dear Mr Smith, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex (aka Prince Harry And Megan Markle).
“Shortly before the marriage, Her Majesty the Queen granted the couple the couple the titles of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“The couple have flagrantly abused the use of their titles by their various well-publicised activities and antics.
“I understand that HM The Queen is unable to rescind these titles; only Parliament can do that.
“As one of the Members of parliament for the County of Sussex, may I suggest that you consider sounding out your colleagues to see if there is any support for Parliament to act to remove the titles from this couple.
“Alternatively, you might care to do the country a favour by introducing a motion yourself.
“I feel that the actions of the couple have brought disrepute to the country and to the monarchy and it is time to bring the whole sorry charade to a close.”
JUST IN: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry worth 1 MILLION dollars per speech
The couple said in a statement: “Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.
“As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us.”
Details of how much Meghan and Harry will be paid for the deal remains unconfirmed, but the deal is expected to provide the couple with several million over the next couple of years.
News of the unprecedented Netflix signing prompted dozens of royal fans to call on the Queen to strip the pair of their official titles.
Outspoken GMB host Piers Morgan has also said Meghan and Harry should be stripped of their Sussex links.
He said: “If they really want to be independent, it seems they do, they want to live in Hollywood or Santa Barbara and wanna make woke movies or TV shows and make us feel lovely and fluffy about everything, that’s fine.
“I just don’t think, as a Sussex resident all my life, I don’t think they should be allowed to keep the titles Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“A. They never go to Sussex and B. If they really want to leave the royal family, why would you even want the titles?
“Except the titles are what is attractive to commercial partners.”
