If Meghan Markle and Prince Harry want to “find freedom” so much, why are they desperately clinging to their royal titles?

  • Queen Elizabeth told Meghan Markle and Prince Harry that they couldn’t use “Sussex Royal” in their branding.
  • As of today, their website using that title is still live.
  • This says more about the “Hollywood Royals” than you might realize.

What would it mean for Harry and Meghan to come to Canada

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/prince-harry-meghan-canada-1.5423395

The article to end all articles and from my take away it’s an uphill battle.

There are so many takeaways from this article but I want to give this one because it’s so funny.

No nobility here, please

If Harry wishes to live in Canada and keep his title, he might face another problem: the Nickle Resolution of 1919.

That resolution of Parliament, reaffirmed by the governments of Lester Pearson, W.L. Mackenzie King and Brian Mulroney, effectively bans foreign titles of nobility for Canadian citizens and anyone “domiciled or living in Canada.”

It was used by Jean Chrétien when he was prime minister to deny a peerage to Conrad Black, who renounced his Canadian passport to get around it.

It’s not as clear how that applies to people who already have titles when they come here. But newspaper magnate Kenneth Thomson, who was once Canada’s richest man and who inherited the title Baron Thomson of Fleet, chose to follow it.

“In London, I’m Lord Thomson. In Toronto, I’m Ken,” he told the Globe and Mail in 2006. “I have two sets of Christmas cards and two sets of stationery.”

As for the notion of making Harry governor general, Lagasse points out that it would represent a step backwards in terms of Canada’s sovereignty.

“Since the mid-20th century, we’ve stopped appointing British aristocrats as governor general. It’s now customary to appoint Canadians who are renowned. There’s no legal impediment to it, he could be named, but the justification for doing it would be sorely lacking.”

Lagasse said “the other big impediment is that this is an appointment made by the Queen.”

“If he’s not particularly in her good graces at the moment, then she may not be interested in appointing him governor general of Canada.”

That is funny stuff! I guess you didn’t think about that one Meg! However, I do suspect her main objective was to get Harry to step down from the start.

Americans like royals that are born into it not just someone who’s married into royalty trying to claim to be born one. Big dif.
I agree with you it is a big difference.  American high society doesn’t like an outsider for the same reasons aristocrats don’t like them either. If they are lucky enough to get it, it’s a lot of hard work ahead such as Kate did to prepare her for a life…

Okay, well at first Harry stated he wanted his child to be regular, but later reports said that when Prince Charles becomes King that he will honor him with a title.  It’s all very confusing to keep up. I wouldn’t suggest asking the press for any favors real soon.  This is the first time in two and a half years that…

Meghan Markle, She did not win Anon

Meghan Markle, She did not win Anon

Sorry but she hasn’t won. The BRF really are genius at this game. Everyone thinks a pic with HM and PP at Windsor is such a big deal they are overlooking that this kid has no title or royal styling. He is not a Prince, not an Earl (as he could be) not even “Lord.” The BRF just successfully denied a biracial kid any of the royal perks and the child has a name people use for their pets. And no one…

Looks like mm will be angry because her child doesn’t have a royal title. Wondering why her child doesn’t now have one?

There is still time to give whatever title she so desires.  Thank you anon, 🌸👶🏼😎
