King Charles could cause an act of war with Sussexes if he strips Royal titles

King Charles could cause an even larger rift with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should he torpedo their children's royal titles.

An automatic right to a Royal title was acted on upon King Charles III's ascension to the throne of England, meaning Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's two children received official titles.

Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor both received the official titles, but could have them stripped should King Charles III power through with a plan to "slim down the monarchy" as one expert called it.

Such plans could see the Sussex children stripped of their titles, which royal expert Eric Schiffer described as an "act of war" with Harry and Meghan.

Expert Schiffer said: "Under the rules of King George V that are more than a century old, any child or grandchild of the monarchy has the automatic right to a royal title.

"If King Charles were to strip Archie and Lilibet of that, it would be a missile that would cause an act of war with Harry and Meghan and a sign of disrespect to his mother Her Majesty.

"Archie and Lilibet must be offered a royal title – it is then up to them if they want to accept it or not – and they will."

That "missile" could cause a rift between King Charles III and the public, Schiffer alleged, with the "brutal backlash" a cause for concern.

He continued: "Rules have been changed in the past, so it’s possible that King Charles could change surrounding titles, especially with his plan to 'slim down the monarchy'".

Doing so could prove troublesome for the newly-ascended King, with Schiffer warning that the "relationship with his son and his family will go nuclear and he might face a brutal backlash with members of the public".

Schiffer warned that members of the public may see the decision "as unfair to the Queen's grandchildren at a time they can't even properly have a voice".
