Charles ‘may ditch’ Harry and Meghan in new monarchy plans when he becomes King

Prince Charles could ditch son Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the Royal Family when he looks to “slim down” the monarch after becoming king, a royal biographer has suggested.

It has often been suggested that the next in line to the throne plans to cut down working members of the Royal Family.

And Angela Levin, who wrote a 2018 biography on Harry, believes this could come at a cost to the Sussexes.

"Prince Charles has wanted for a very long time to cut the monarchy down to save costs and to make people be worth the money that they got from the taxpayer,” she said on talkRADIO.

"I imagine that might be when Harry and Meghan are ditched from being members of the Royal family."

Harry and Meghan have already stepped back as senior members of the Royal Family and are financially independent having secured multi-million pound deals with the likes of Netflix and Spotify.

They have been stripped of many of their royal patronages but have retained their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles, so it is not exactly clear what “ditching” them from the Firm would actually involve.

Angela suggested the “outer edge” of the institution, which she believes the Queen has wanted to keep together for “sentimental reasons”, could face being cut.

She continued: “He will also accompany the Queen, it's said she's going to be there opening Parliament on May 11th and Prince Charles will be accompanying her.

“I think although she wants to do her duties she will step back, even more, it'll be quite hard to come back after the pandemic and all the isolation.

“In fact, she will be grateful for him to be taking over in making I imagine quite big decisions on behalf of the royal family."

Previous royal commentators have suggested the change of monarchy could lead to the “evolution” of Harry and Meghan’s role in the Royal Family – and they could even return.
