One question that has emerged is whether it is time to strip them of their royal titles.   In recent years, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, have made headlines with their controversial actions and statements. From stepping back from their royal duties to their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, their behaviour has caused numerous debates and discussions. Prince Harry's latest move of rebranding their Archewell website at Sussex.com, complete with their coat of arms, is a clear indication that they are beyond redemption. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({});Their actions disregard the importance of family and the pressures faced by the monarchy. It is no wonder that Prince William refused to see his brother during his recent visit to the UK, with reports suggesting their meeting lasted only half an hour. The rebranding of their website as Sussex.com is not only a shameless name-grab but also an attempt to commercialize the title bestowed upon them by the late Queen. It goes against the explicit wishes they agreed upon when they decided to step back from royal life in 2020. They were meant to refrain from using their titles for personal and financial gain. Yet, they continue to associate themselves with the monarchy while simultaneously trashing and despising it. Contrary to their claims, Sussex is not their...
