Prince Harry, son of King Charles III and the late Princess Diana, is married to Meghan Markle, a former American actress. The couple started dating in 2016 before getting married in 2019. The couple made headlines for distancing themselves too much from the royal family and in 2020, they walked away from their royal duties.
Although the two don’t have a traditional day-to-day life, they met in a pretty conventional way – being arranged by a mutual friend.
Prince Harry and Markle arranged a blind date but their mutual friend in July 2016. At the time, Markle was acting in the television show “Suits”. Later that summer, they traveled to Africa together. Their relationship was confirmed in November 2016.
About a year later, in November 2017, they announced their engagement, and on May 19, 2018, they were married at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. They were given the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex by Queen Elizabeth II.

The following year, in March 2021, the two had their controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey where they shared a lot of details and made a lot of accusations against the royal family. Harry and Markle’s distance and comments against the royal family have created a divide against the couple and the family, especially with Harry’s older brother and future king, Prince William.
In June 2021, Harry and Markle had their second child, a daughter named Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
After the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022, King Charles III continued to allow Harry and Markle to use their royal titles, although many believe they should no longer detain them.
A petition was started around the time they walked away from royal duties that called for their titles to be taken away so they “cannot be used for personal financial gain”.
Royal expert Hilary Fordwich shared why many are upset about Harry and Markle still using their titles for Fox News Digital.

“There was a petition, a movement of the people of Sussex County, they should represent, to remove them. Why? Because they are taking the name, but they are not doing anything for the people of Sussex. . This is a dilemma. It’s not a celebrity role. It’s a duty role. So you need to do your duty and then keep the title. Why would anyone want the title if they don’t want to do their duty to the people of Sussex County? Or you make it or you don’t. You can’t have your cake and eat it too,” Fordwich said.

Since King Charles III renewed his titles, the only way to change is if “Parliament says otherwise,” Fordwich said.
Prince Harry and Markle joined the rest of the royal family in England following the death of Queen Elizabeth II in 2022.
