The Queen, 94, will be evaluating Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s behaviour as royals ahead of the Megxit review in March. Commentator Andrew Pierce has insisted that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will face calls to have their titles removed after the launch of a new investment deal. It comes as Meghan has invested in a start-up business which makes instant oat milk lattes.
Speaking to ITV’s Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan claimed “sources close to the Palace” are “just not happy about this overt, commercial activity”.
Mr Pierce said: “It’s tacky, it’s royals for hire, royals for rent.
“I remember Prince Michael of Kent in American many years ago was flogging bits of royal memorabilia on American TV programmes, it was stopped within days by the Queen.
“She won’t stop Meghan Markle from doing this because they’re a law unto themselves.
“But I think as that review continues as to how well they’re behaving as royals, that review will be published in March by Buckingham Palace.

“This sort of thing will speed up calls for them to be stripped of their title of HRH.
“HRH’s should not be flogging coffee even if it is environmentally-friendly and getting it promoted on a chat show.”
Meghan, who this year secured a multimillion-pound deal with Netflix, is beginning to build a portfolio of investments, and her involvement with Clevr Blends is the first to be made public.
The Duchess said in a statement: “This investment is in support of a passionate female entrepreneur who prioritises building community alongside her business.
After tasting the lattes, Meghan contacted Ms Mendoza to learn more about the firm.
Meghan quit as a senior working royal in March for a life of personal and financial freedom.
She and Harry had hoped for a dual role, earning their own money and supporting the Queen, but it was not possible and would have led to accusations they were profiting from the monarchy.
Their Netflix deal is rumoured to be worth more than £150million.
