Meghan Markle is a Princess of the United Kingdom through her marriage to Prince Harry as "The Princess Henry," which led one long-running royal expert to share how she and her Duke's titles are not going anywhere.

"If they lose their titles, Harry is still a prince of the blood and Meghan, instead of being the Duchess of Sussex, would be Princess Henry," editor of Majesty Magazine Ingrid Seward told an outlet. "That really would confuse the Americans. I think it’s probably best just to leave it because it looks unkind, it looks unnecessary."

King Charles 'will likely not' strip Harry and Meghan of their royal styles.

This follows broadcaster Piers Morgans' words of caution for King Charles III in early May. "They shouldn't be using the titles of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex bestowed on them by the monarchy," the TV star, who is not a fan of the duo, told Megyn Kelly on her self-titled radio show.

"I hope that King Charles — who is massively distracted by his illness — will at some stage have that conversation and say, 'You can't keep the titles. I'm sorry,'" he added.

This succeeded previous reports that suggested the Sussex duo "will do everything" to keep their titles, but are possibly in danger of losing them once and for all.

"You know, they've upped and left. And of course, there's a possibility that the decision to strip them of their titles won't actually have to be made by the royals," royal expert Katie Nicholl dished.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex continue to use their titles despite not working for the British Crown.

"She [Meghan] divorced the royal family. And some might say that's exactly what Harry and Meghan have done in all but name," she added.

Nicholl continued: "It may be made through the Houses of Parliament. We know from this couple that they will do everything possible to hold on to those titles because without the 'Duke and Duchess,' they're just Harry and Meghan, and that simply doesn't carry the same amount of weight. So I think it's a case of wait and see what's going to happen on that."

As the British sovereign, Charles III can remove Harry and Meghan's HRH styles by simply issuing a Letters Patent making it so. He could also remove Harry's "prince" style, which also extends to Meghan as "Princess Henry" by virtue of marriage. It would take the U.K. parliament passing acts of legislation to remove the "Duke/Duchess of Sussex" titles and/or to strike Harry and his two children from the line of succession to the throne.

Despite the scandals that have erupted since the monarch acceded to the throne, analysts point out that the King will likely never do his part in removing his youngest son and daughter-in-law's royal address.
