Charles doesnt want to humiliate Prince Harry and Andrew further, says expert

King Charles has no intention of piling further humiliation on his brother Prince Andrew and son Prince Harry by stripping them of their titles, a royal expert has claimed.

A Private Members' Bill will discuss in Parliament next month whether the monarch should be given powers to remove royal titles.

But, with Charles and the Government understood to be against such a proposal, it is unlikely to see the light of day, according to The Express' royal correspondent Richard Palmer.

He has claimed "there is no sign" Charles wants Harry and Andrew to be relieved of their titles even though neither are currently carrying out royal duties.

"The interesting thing about the titles is the monarch has no power to remove them, so it would need a change in the law," Palmer pointed out. “Rachael Maskell, the MP for York, is bringing a Private Members' Bill to Parliament in early December that would do that.

"She is particularly concerned about the Duke of York and she thinks her constituents do not want Prince Andrew to be the Duke of York any longer. So, she wants to create the facility for the King to take the title away from him.

"But, a Private Members' Bill has very little chance of making it into law unless the Government takes it up and supports it. At the moment, there is no sign that the Government is going to do that, perhaps because the King does not want to do that.

"The King does not want to humiliate any further his brother or his youngest son, Prince Harry. That would be my guess."

In light of the civil case against him made by Virginia Guiffre, Andrew was forced to give up his military titles, his HRH title in any official capacity and the remainder of his royal patronages – many of the charities he supported had already distanced themselves from him following his car crash BBC interview in 2019.
