Republic is an organization that campaigns for the monarchy to be abolished and the Queen to be replaced with an elected, democratic head of state. Graham Smith told Express.co.uk that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have a plan that involves Prince Charles partly funding them.
Mr Smith said: “Part of their plan appears to be for Prince Charles to partly fund Prince Harry, hoping that would look like a dad helping out his son.
“The money he is using is public money whether directly or from the Duchy of Cornwall which belongs to us.
“They can’t really carry on doing that.
“They need a completely clean break.”

Mr Smith said: “Prince Charles funds are from the Duchy of Cornwall, the Duchy of Cornwall belongs to us.
“We are giving him more than £20 million a year from the Duchy of Cornwall profits.
“We are not charging him corporation tax and he will then get a tax break on claiming the costs of supporting his son and daughter-in-law.
