Prince Harry today dramatically declared that he and Meghan will never move back to the UK and become working members of the Royal Family – just hours after using another bombshell US interview to rubbish suggestions that the couple give up their official titles.

Speaking on Good Morning America, the Duke of Sussex said: ‘I don’t think it’s ever going to be possible, I don’t think that even if there was an agreement or an arrangement between me and my family there’s that third party that’s going to do everything they can to make sure that that isn’t possible, not stopping us from going back but making it unsurvivable.’

He continued: ‘Because that’s essentially breaking the relationship between us. There was something in the future where, you know, we can continue to support the Commonwealth that of course is on the table.

In a separate interview with the CBS network, the prince swerved a question by Anderson Cooper who asked him why, given his clear antipathy to the instruction of the monarchy, does he and Meghan not just renounced their titles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

‘And what difference would that make?’ was his only answer.

Cooper said: ‘One of the criticisms that you’ve received is that okay, fine, you wanna move to California, you wanna step back from the institutional role. Why be so public? Why reveal conversations you’ve had with your father or with your brother? You say you tried to do this privately.’

Harry retorted: ‘Every single time I’ve tried to do it privately there have been briefings and leakings and planting of stories against me and my wife.

‘You know, the family motto is never complain, never explain. But it’s just a motto. And it doesn’t really hold.’

The couple first made the shocking announcement that they were going to step back from their royal duties on January 8, 2020.

At the time, they wrote in a joint statement that they had reached the decision after ‘many months of reflection and internal discussions.’

They said they wanted to ‘work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.’

‘We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honor our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages,’ the statement continued.

‘This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.’

At the time, Norman Baker, a former Liberal Democrat MP and a Home Office minister in the coalition government, said they should give up their titles in a scathing interview, stating, ‘You can’t be one foot in, one foot out.’

‘You are either a member of the royal family or you are not,’ he told the Express.

He told host Anderson Cooper (seen) that there was a huge 'weight on his chest' that he 'felt for so many years' over not shedding more tears - and that he even tried watching videos of her to bring forth his emotions

Cooper said: ‘One of the criticisms that you’ve received is that okay, fine, you wanna move to California, you wanna step back from the institutional role. Why be so public? Why reveal conversations you’ve had with your father or with your brother? You say you tried to do this privately.’ Harry retorted: ‘Every single time I’ve tried to do it privately there have been briefings and leakings and planting of stories against me and my wife’ 

Just over a year later, in February 2021, Harry and Meghan announced that they were permanently stepping down as royals and moving to California full-time, where they purchased a $14 million mansion in Montecito.

One month later, the pair sat down with Oprah for a two-hour, tell-all conversation – during which, they alleged that someone in the royal family voiced concerns over their son, Archie’s skin color before his birth and that Meghan had suicidal thoughts while she was pregnant, but that she was told by the Palace that she couldn’t ‘get help’ because ‘it wouldn’t be good for the institution.’

After the interview aired, palace aides called on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to give up their titles once again.

‘The Duke of Sussex has now spent a significant amount of time emphasizing that he’s no different to anyone else and attacking the institution which he says has caused him so much pain,’ a senior courtier told The Mail on Sunday.

‘There is a growing feeling that if you dislike the institution that much, you shouldn’t have the titles.

‘They should just become Harry and Meghan. And if they refuse to do that, they have to explain why not.’

In their recent Netflix doc, the couple made more shocking statements – like that the couple were victims of ‘institutional gaslighting’ and that the royals would lie to protect his older brother, Prince William.

Harry also said in the series that he told his father, King Charles II, that he and Meghan were willing to relinquish their titles during discussions surrounding their plan to move to America.

Following its premiere, a poll by YouGov, carried out for The Times, revealed that 44 per cent of participants said that Prince Harry and Meghan should have their titles removed, while 32 per cent thought not.

A separate poll for Mail+ resulted in 98 per cent of 9,700 people stating that they wanted the royal couple to lose their titles.

Royal expert and biographer Robert Jobson said afterwards: ‘Harry claims in his Netflix docuseries he offered to give up his title Duke of Sussex.

‘Given his and his wife’s distaste for our constitutional monarchy, surely it is time for the Crown to accept his offer. The title was given in anticipation of service to the Crown and country.’

It was also reported that Members of Parliament have been trying to get a bill passed that would give the Privy Council the power to downgrade Harry and Meghan’s status.

To change the royal couple’s status, legislation would have to amend the 1917 Titles Deprivation Act that was used to remove honours such as peerages from enemies who supported German aggression in the First World War.
