Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, will reportedly do anything to hold onto her royal status, including commanding her husband, Prince Harry, to drop his wish to become a U.S. citizen.

This led journalist Lee Cohen to observe: "I think that Harry will likely never pursue U.S. citizenship. Even though he expressed in the Good Morning America interview that this thought has crossed his mind."

Meghan Markle would lose all her royal styles and titles if Prince Harry became an American citizen.

"Meghan was U.S.-born and able to accept her title through marriage, but the title conflict arises if one elects to go through the process of US citizenship application," he added. "Why would he jeopardize the only status? None of that makes Harry and his wife relevant and interesting. I don’t think that Meghan will let him do that, in case it affects her own status."

Harry hinted at potentially becoming a United States citizen during the interview on Friday, February 16. "The American citizenship is a thought that has crossed my mind, but is certainly not something that is a high priority for me right now," His Royal Highness shared.

The Duke of Sussex would become 'Mr. Henry Windsor' if he renounces his royal styles and titles.

As The Royal Observer previously reported, if the Duke of Sussex wished to go forward with becoming a tried and true U.S. citizen, he would need to renounce being a subject of King Charles III in addition to all of his royal titles and styles. Under the "Renunciation of Title or Order of Nobility" policy of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the fifth in line to the British throne will have to permanently say goodbye to being "His Royal Highness Prince Henry, Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton, Baron of Kilkeel."

The U.S. Oath of Allegiance states that "any applicant who has any titles of heredity or positions of nobility in any foreign state must renounce the title or the position."

Furthermore, any failure on Harry's part to comply with this demand would be considered a "lack of attachment" to the nation's Constitution.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been 'very active' publicly in 2024 so far.

In various interviews since "Megxit" brought him first to Canada and then to California in 2020, the royal rebel has largely avoided the question of fully becoming an American citizen and dropping being a British subject. "I don't know how I feel," the Duke stated in one interview when asked if he "felt American."

"How many people are in that position?" celebrity lawyer James L. Leonard Jr. told an outlet. "Perhaps a political figure that maybe is an elected official, but this [Harry’s title] is a hereditary, lifetime [role] and a very unique legal issue. It actually may be a matter of first impression, meaning our court system may have never dealt with this particular issue."

Meghan — who has been accused of standing behind the camera and motioning and mouthing things for Harry to say during his interviews — would lose all British royal styles if Harry renounces being a subject of Charles III.
