MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry will turn down any offer for their new child to have an official royal title bestowed upon them, an expert has claimed.He told viewers: "Well, it will be very very different.
"Clearly Harry and Meghan would have quite liked to nibble at the cake, and they're not being allowed to.
"But what this means is that the Palace and the institution of the monarchy have lost something."

"They had a woman who identified as biracial, as dual heritage. They had a couple who reached parts of the United Kingdom, and they are now gone.
"What is left is a sort of white, a lot male and, in the eyes of some of their critics, quite stale institution."
