NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! Prince Harry, the former American actress Meghan Markle’s husband, is the son of King Charles III and the late Princess Diana. Before getting married in 2019, the couple began dating in 2016. The pair gained notoriety for their notable distance from the royal family, and in 2020, they resigned down from their senior royal responsibilities.
Although the two don’t lead conventional lives, they did get set up and meet in a fairly typical manner—through a mutual acquaintance.
In July 2016, a mutual friend arranged up a blind date for Prince Harry and Markle. Markle was performing at the time on the “Suits” television program. They took a journey to Africa together later that summer. In November 2016, their relationship was made official.
They made their engagement public in November 2017 and was married in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018, about a year later. Queen Elizabeth II bestowed upon them the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The two had their contentious encounter with Oprah Winfrey the following year, in March 2021, where they divulged numerous information and leveled numerous accusations against the royal family. Harry and Markle have alienated members of the royal family with their distancing and anti-royal remarks, particularly Harry’s older brother and future monarch, Prince William.
Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, a daughter, was born to Harry and Markle in June 2021.
King Charles III continued to permit Harry and Markle to use their royal titles after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022, despite the opinions of many who felt they should no longer have them.
Around the time they stopped performing royal duties, a petition was started asking that their titles be revoked so they “cannot be used for personal financial benefit.”
Hilary Fordwich, a royal specialist, explained to Fox News Digital why many people are concerned that Harry and Markle are still using their titles.

“They are intended to represent the residents of Sussex County, yet there has been a petition and effort to have them removed. Why? Because they are using the name but doing nothing to help the residents of Sussex. This is a conundrum. This is not a role for a star. It is a duty-related function. Therefore, you must do your duties before holding the title. If someone doesn’t want to fulfill their obligation to the residents of Sussex County, why would they desire the title? Either you do it or you don’t. Having your cake and eating it too “said Fordwich.
British citizens express their opinions about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
The only way their titles will alter because King Charles III renewed them is if “Parliament declares differently,” according to Fordwich.
Following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II in 2022, Prince Harry and Markle did move to England to join the rest of the royal family.
