Piers Morgan told Tucker Carlson that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are securing lucrative deals as a result of still retaining their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles. The former Good Morning Britain host added that if Meghan and Harry truly believe the claims made against the monarchy during their interview with Oprah, they should give up their titles.
Mr Morgan said: “Meghan Markle, who married into one of the most richest, privileged families in the world and within a couple of years has gone back to her home in California, is living in an $11 million mansion, is doing all sorts of enormous deals with Netflix, Spotify, you name it they are taking the checks, hundreds of millions we read.
“How are they getting those? They are getting those because they are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“They are getting them off their royal titles.
“The royal titles bestowed on them by the very institution that in that interview with Oprah Winfrey they say they cannot stand, it is suffocating, it trapped them and so on.

Mr Bower said: “All she has got to do really, in the end, is distance herself from the Royal Family even more and drop the title of Duchess.
“It does not sit well with American voters.”
He added: “I think that she is a woman that is very much looking for a role within the world.

“Not just endorsing coffees but also changing the world.
“She is well placed now with the Oprah Winfrey interview.”
