Travel Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Royal Titles Disputed by Sussex Petitioners
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Kick Off Their Royal Tour of Africa
Here's where the royal couple will spend time together and apart on their trip to Africa.The family’s 10-day trip began on Monday with a trip to the Nyanga township in South Africa. According to People, the couple is spending some time in a workshop in the township with the NGO Justice Desk, which teaches children about their rights, self-awareness, and safety. The program, People noted, is supported by the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.
In May 2018, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle. As a gift to the new couple, Queen Elizabeth gave the pair the title of , which is how they’ve been known ever since. However, if a group of locals have their way, that title will be null and void in their town.
According to reports, a council in East Sussex will soon debate on if the couple should lose their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles while visiting the towns of Brighton and Hove.
In a public petition, the council states:
We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to reject the usage of the titles "Duke of Sussex" and "Duchess of Sussex" by the individuals Henry ("Harry") Windsor and Rachel Meghan Markle as morally wrong and disrespectful to the county of East Sussex. As residents of Brighton and Hove we call on Brighton and Hove Council to not refer to these individuals by such titles which we believe to be entirely non-democratic and symbolic of the oppression of the general public by the wealthy elite. Neither will Brighton Council invite or entertain these individuals nor afford them any hospitality or courtesies above and beyond that of an ordinary member of the public.
Harry and William Aren’t Close Anymore, and We’re Crying
While both royal bros are skeptical of the press, Harry’s public emotion contrasts with William’s ease with the mediaThere were so many headlines—”Meghan reveals her British friends warned her not to marry Harry” and “‘It’s hard’: Prince Harry and Meghan speak of the strain of royal life in new documentary”—that Harry’s confirmation that he and his older brother, Prince William, are no longer close (“As brothers, you have good days, you have bad days”) was soon buried amid the avalanche of news generated from that documentary, the secondary reactions to the documentary and reactions to the reactions.
However, there’s an important caveat to all of this: The council cannot actually take their titles away. That can only be done by the Queen. All this petition can do is ensure they aren’t called the Duke and Duchess while visiting these towns, and instead are simply addressed by their given names.
Still, that isn’t stopping this petition from chugging along. To date, it’s been signed by. Though many people seem to support the measure, reports it has little chance of actually passing a council vote. Others, including Thomas Mace-Archer-Mills, founder of the British Monarchists Society, are voicing their displeasure at the petition too.
Meghan Markle's Personal Makeup Artist Reveals the Secret to Her Perfect Brows
Duchess brows all around, please.If you've ever caught yourself lusting for Duchess brows of your very own, you're in luck because Meghan's longtime friend and personal makeup artist, Daniel Martin, is not treating the trick to achieving them like a state secret.
"We are utterly dismayed that said petition has been signed by so many,” Mace-Archer-Mills told. “Such a petition shows utter disdain and contempt for The Crown, not to mention copious amounts of disrespect to, and for, the Royal Family which undertakes thousands of engagements per year on behalf of the nation, in right of Her Majesty as The Crown."
Who knows though, maybe this is exactly what Meghan and Harry want. They have been escaping the United Kingdom for some alone time as a family rather often lately. They’re evenwith Meghan’s mother Doria. And surely, nobody would object to them becoming the Duke and Duchess of L.A., right?
