Why, despite a recent move against royal precedent, Queen Elizabeth II has not stripped Meghan Markle of her title

With each passing day, the public demand for Queen Elizabeth II to depose Meghan Markle as Duchess of Sussex grows louder.

After stepping down from their roles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex in 2020, it was reported that the couple would keep their titles but not use the HRH (HisHer Royal Highness) style.

Following her recent move, however, Meghan’s title is being questioned not only in the United Kingdom, but also across the Atlantic.

Meghan called a number of US senators in November to lobby for federal paid parental leave, according to reports.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren was among the people Prince Harry’s wife contacted.

Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) is a member of the United States House of Representatives from West Virginia.

She was driving when she received a call from a blocked number, she told Politico.

‘Senator Capito?… This is Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex,’ said Capito when she answered the phone.

Following news of the former actor’s phone calls to senators, some lawmakers, including Rep.

Jason Smith (R-MO) questioned why Meghan was still given the title of Duchess of Sussex by the queen.

When it comes to political issues, Meghan acknowledged that using a title is a no-no in the royal family because they are expected to remain politically neutral.

Meghan made it clear that she does not consider paid family leave to be a political issue, but rather a humanitarian one.

Even if politics are removed from the equation, many believe Meghan is simply cashing in on her royal title and that the monarch should act to revoke it.

However, Sarah Ferguson is likely to have played a role in Queen Elizabeth II’s decision to keep Meghan’s duchess title.

After some marital issues and an embarrassing toe-sucking scandal, the queen’s former daughter-in-law married Prince Andrew in 1986, but she and the Duke of York divorced 10 years later.

Fergie continued to use HRH as well as her Duchess of York title after their divorce.

A patent governing post-divorce royal titles was issued within months.

Sarah could no longer use HRH because she was no longer married to Andrew, according to the document.

She did, however, keep her Duchess of York title and was not stripped of it…
