On December 12, 2022, the British Parliament may pass a resolution that would grant the Privy Council the right to strip the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, of their titles. This resolution, if passed, would allow the Privy Council to revoke the titles bestowed upon the couple by Queen Elizabeth II when they married in 2018.
The Privy Council is an ancient body of advisors to the British monarch. It is made up of senior members of the British government, including the Prime Minister, and is responsible for advising the monarch on matters of state. The Privy Council is also responsible for granting and revoking royal titles.
The resolution, if passed, would give the Privy Council the power to revoke the titles of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. This would mean that the couple would no longer be known as His Royal Highness Prince Harry and Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex. They would also no longer be entitled to the privileges that come with being a member of the British royal family.
The resolution has been proposed by a group of British MPs who are unhappy with the couple’s decision to step back from their royal duties and move to the United States. The MPs argue that the couple should not be allowed to keep their titles if they are no longer actively involved in royal duties.
The resolution has yet to be voted on and it is unclear if it will pass. If it does pass, it will be up to the Privy Council to decide whether or not to revoke the titles of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
It is important to note that the resolution, if passed, would not affect the couple’s children, Archie and their unborn daughter. They would still be entitled to their titles as the children of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The resolution is a sign of the growing discontent among British MPs towards the couple’s decision to step back from their royal duties. It remains to be seen if the resolution will pass and, if it does, what the Privy Council will decide to do with the titles of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
