Royal author Phil Dampier asked whether there should be a way to axe Harry and his children after it was confirmed he and Meghan Markle will not be returning to royal duties. The royal expert pointed out that his position as sixth in line to the throne is “still pretty high”.

Mr Dampier tweeted: “If #PrinceHarry wants to walk away from royal duties is there or should there be a mechanism for taking him and his children out of the line of succession? Sixth is still pretty high.”

Royal author Robert Jobson insisted Harry should be taken out of the line of succession.

Mr Jobson said it gives the “wrong message” that Harry – who has quit royal duties for a new life in America – is above Princess Anne and Prince Edward.

He warned Harry could become regent if something happened to heir to the throne Prince Charles and Prince William, who is second in line, before Prince George was old enough.

Replying to Mr Dampier’s tweet, Mr Jobson wrote: “Yes. It gives totally the wrong message.

“Harry doesn’t want to represent the monarchy yet he and his children are above Anne and Edward.

“If anything happened to Charles & William before George came of age he could be acting as Regent.

“Primogeniture change should include Anne.”

“The honorary military appointments and royal patronages held by the Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of the Royal Family.

“While all are saddened by their decision, the Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family.”

The couple have been stripped of their royal patronages given to them by the Queen.

A spokesperson for Meghan and Harry said: “As evidenced by their work over the past year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the UK and around the world, and have offered their continued support to the organisations they have represented regardless of official role.

“We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”

Since quitting royal duties, Meghan and Harry have struck lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify to make shows and podcasts.

The pair, who are expecting their second child, have bought a mansion in California where they are living with their young son Archie.

The Sussexes are to give their first televised interview since Megxit to US chat show host Oprah Winfrey, which airs next month.
