Megan and Harry’s deal with the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William in January is due to be reconsidered in March. This review could simply formalize Megan and Harry’s departure from the Royal Family and finalize the terms already agreed in early 2020.
However, he can see all three senior royalty sitting in Sandringham with Prince Harry change the agreement with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex if they believe the transition period has shown that the agreement does not work “for all parties”.
Speaking about the review, a source at the palace said in February: “The royal family and Sussex have agreed to an initial 12-month review to ensure that the agreement works for all parties.”
Royal author Robert Lacey believes the review is likely to conclude that Megan and Harry can no longer be called “royal.”
However, this will not mean that the couple loses their titles.
He told Express.co.uk: “Two titles are included, there is HRH status and then the actual title is Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“Obviously, if the March review concludes that royalty cannot remain employed, then they are very likely to lose or lose their human rights style.
“It simply came to our notice then.

“The way they present themselves at the moment is that they are HPVs, but they decide not to use it, they are not said to be forbidden to use it.
“If this develops in the future, I think it will be presented in the same way – they choose not to be more royalty.
“That doesn’t mean they’re giving up their titles.
DO NOT MISS
“The queen presented them with these titles.
“The world is full of people with British titles and they are free to do what they like.
“Like any other aristocrat, their title is with them for life, they can choose not to use it because for most of the world, Harry and Megan are the star names who command the charm of people around the world.”
While the title can be held by anyone who receives it, the HRH style, which means His / Her Royal Highness, is only used to address people or those close to the line of the throne.
Megan and Harry announced in January their intention to retire as senior royalty and broke in their statement a decision to half-half, half-out.
This would make them continue to perform royal duties and represent the Queen during visits or tours abroad, while being able to become financially independent and live abroad.
After the meeting in Sandringham in January, the couple agreed not to use HRH styles anymore – as long as they kept them – and to stop performing royal duties.
In turn, they were allowed to maintain their patronage, become financially independent, and live abroad with their son, Archie Harrison.
Since the end of March, when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex officially left the royal family as adult working full-time members, Megan and Harry have made several changes in their lives.
In the summer, the couple voted on pre-election suffrage, the Black Lives Matter movement and support for charities amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In July, Megan, Harry and Archie moved into their new home in Montesito, Santa Barbara.
In September, they revealed that they had struck a deal with Netflix that would lead them to become television producers for streaming platforms.
And over the past few months, as well as volunteering for various charities, Megan and Harry have also worked behind the scenes of their new foundation, Archewell.
The foundation, whose website launches in late October, will focus on creating more humane and understanding communities both online and in real life.
