THE Queen dropped Prince Harry and Meghan’s royal titles from a statement about their future in The Firm in a move one commentator said was “very striking”.

Her Majesty, 93, released the statement following the royal summit at Sandringham House on Monday and, in a break from tradition, referred to Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, by their first names rather than their titles the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Some fans said it indicated the couple could be stripped of their royal positions in a move that would send shockwaves through the Royal Family.

Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter said the move was likely to be telling, posting on Twitter: “I do think it was very striking, particularly in a statement from the Queen.”

Meanwhile another royal fan commented: “Interesting the Queen refers to Harry and Meghan not the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

“Are they having to give up their titles? This would be an indication they are...”

One wrote: “Is there anything in that The Queen refers to Harry and Meghan without any titles? Hope so, because they don’t deserve them.”

However others disagreed, saying: “It’s striking, but I think she wanted to highlight they are a family and she is supporting her grandson and his family.

“Can you imagine how cold and impersonal this would have sounded had she used their titles.”

The statement comes after Harry, Prince William and Prince Charles were pictured leaving the unprecedented summit in separate cars after more than two hours of crunch talks with Her Majesty.

Harry faced his grandmother, his brother and father for the first time since quitting as a senior royal with Meghan “dialling in” to support her husband from Canada.

In the statement released by Buckingham Palace after the showdown, the Queen said: “Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family.

“My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family.

“Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.”

Charles is also said to be hurt by the couple’s decision to quit because he has secretly given them millions to fund their lavish lifestyle and furnish their Windsor home in a show of love for the couple since they married 20 months ago, according to the Evening Standard.
