- King Charles has made a peace offering to Prince Harry
- He has confessed he won't strip his title
- THIS is what Charles said
Despite the explosive revelations in Omid Scobie's new tell-all book 'Endgame,' the King is standing firm on not stripping Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of their noble titles. The royal couple, who famously stepped back from their duties in 2020, have been at the center of a media whirlwind, but it seems they won't be losing their ducal crowns any time soon!
A royal olive branch?
Sources close to the palace reveal that King Charles is not the type to inflict humiliation on his family, even amidst the storm of controversy. "The King is not a punitive man," one insider spilled to 'MailOnline,' adding that Charles would "never want to humiliate" his son and daughter-in-law. It's clear that despite the frosty relations and the couple's HRH titles being previously removed, their Duke and Duchess statuses are safe for now.
There have been repeated calls since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex acrimoniously quit as working royals for firstly the late Queen Elizabeth, and now King Charles, to formally sever ties with the couple by taking away the honorary titles they were given on marriage.
According to 'Mail.com,' Buckingham Palace is considering all options as a result of the latest furore, sources insist that downgrading them as Duke and Duchess of Sussex is simply not on the table. "That is just something that would not be considered," they stressed.
The late Queen previously stripped her grandson and his wife of their HRH titles, insisting they could not use them in their new commercial working lives. If Meghan were to lose her duchess title, as the wife of a son of the monarch she would be entitled to call herself Princess Henry.
Scobie's scoop stirs the pot!
Author Omid Scobie known for his close ties to the Sussexes, has stirred the royal pot with his latest work, which includes claims of a chilly reception of Meghan by none other than Kate Middleton.
While Scobie didn't get direct quotes from Meghan for 'Endgame,' his connections suggest he's got the inside scoop. Yet, even with this book sending shockwaves through the monarchy, King Charles remains steadfast in his decision to keep the peace.
Should the Sussexes ever lose their titles, they could still fall back on Harry's princely status, with Meghan potentially adopting the title of Princess Henry. But for now, they remain the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with a royal source emphasizing, "That is just something that would not be considered."
Prince Harry and Meghan are yet to break their silence, after the Dutch translation of Omid Scobie’s book identified two royals at the centre of a racism row.
King Charles and the Princess of Wales were named as the royals accused of raising questions about the skin colour of Prince Harry and Meghan’s son, Archie, before he was born.
The Sussexes, who first made the claims in their 2021 interview with Oprah, have been silent so far on the situation. TV host Piers Morgan defended his decision to identify the two members of the royal family at the centre of the furore, saying it was "blindingly obvious" they were not guilty of racism.
Amidst the drama, Scobie has defended his work after a Dutch version of his book caused a stir by seemingly revealing names linked to comments about Prince Archie's skin color. The author has stood his ground, claiming no error on his part and refusing to apologize, leading to copies being pulled from Dutch shelves.
As the royal rollercoaster continues, one thing is for sure: King Charles' mercy has spared Harry and Meghan from a title takedown. Stay tuned, royal watchers, as this regal saga is far from over!
