Meghan Markle’s Oprah claim questioned after using Duchess title for new book

Meghan Markle’s use of her Duchess of Sussex title on the front of her new book has been questioned by some royal fans after she said she "didn't have an attachment to all the grandeur" during her Oprah Winfrey interview.

Prince Harry’s wife has written a new children's book, called The Bench, which will be released next month but her use of her royal title has sparked controversy.

During her bombshell Oprah interview she said had no "attachment" to all the pageantry that goes with being a duchess and that her son Archie didn’t have a title.

She told CBS: “All the grandeur surrounding this stuff [titles and pageantry] is an attachment I don’t personally have.

“I’ve been a waitress, an actress, a princess, a Duchess – I’ve always still just been Meghan, right? I’ve been clear on who I am, independent of all that stuff, and the most important title I’ll ever have is mum. I know that.”

It was picked up by Christina Garibaldi and Molly Mulshine on The Royally Us podcast where they said they were "confused" about her use of the royal title.

Molly said: "The one thing I did find interesting was that Meghan used her title on the front cover.

"It says 'by the Duchess of Sussex'. I was surprised by that.

"Just because she said in the interview that she doesn't care about the pomp and pageantry. She said titles are not important to her."

She added: "So I was a little confused by that part, I have to admit."

Christina said: "That was a little confusing. Do you want to be a duchess or do you not want to be a duchess?

"You've got to make up your mind."

It comes after Prince Harry appeared on a new podcast where he compared his life to Jim Carrey classic Truman Show.

He also revealed that he met Meghan in a supermarket in the tell-all interview with Dax Shepherd on his podcast Armchair Expert.
