The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have once again landed themselves into the hot waters regarding their royal titles.
While Harry and Meghan, who have had stepped down from their royal duties after Megxit, have been advised by a former diplomat to hand their ‘Sussex’ titles to Prince William and Kate Middleton's children, Charlotte and Louis.
The former diplomat, Adrian Hill has warned the Duke of Sussex his 'sniping' at his family must be stopped, adding that the couple needed to understand they cannot “have it both ways” by only accepting publicity when it suits them.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Hill said, "If Harry wants to become a Hollywood star, that's up to him, but for myself as a person who regards himself from Sussex - lived there thirty years, plus mother's family - one cannot help wondering why the Queen's advisers allow Harry and Meghan to carry on claiming a connection with Sussex let alone as Duke and Duchess.”
“There are two dukes already resident, one at Arundel and the other at Goodwood and both families do a great deal for the local community,” he added.
“Both are in West Sussex so a Duke and Duchess would have brought something glamorous to East Sussex.”
Prince Harry and Meghan stepped down as ‘senior’ royals last year and have since confirmed they won’t return as working royals. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's lives have changed considerably – with Harry and Meghan living in Montecito, California, with their two children, son Archie and newborn baby girl Lilibet Diana.
