Harry and Meghan could be 'ditched' from the Royal family by Prince Charles as he streamlines Monarchy to save money

 Prince Harry and Meghan Markle face being 'ditched' from the Royal family by Prince Charles as he streamlines the Monarchy, an expert has predicted.


Royal biographer Angela Levin said the Prince of Wales is set to 'cut the monarchy down' to save money.

She thinks this could be the point at which the Duke and Duchess of Sussex - who currently live in an £11million mansion in California with their son Archie - are cut loose.

Both Prince Charles and Prince William were set to discuss the future of the Monarchy - including which family members should be working Royals - following Prince Philip's death on April 9.

A smaller-sized 'Firm' could see just Charles, Camilla, William, the Duchess of Cambridge, Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte as senior royals.

Other royals could be encouraged to take on paid work to help support themselves - and may lose their titles and patronages. 

Ms Levin said on talkRADIO: 'Prince Charles has wanted for a very long time to cut the monarchy down to save costs and to make people be worth the money that they got from the taxpayer.

'I imagine that might be when Harry and Meghan are ditched from being members of the Royal family. 

'I think the outer edge, which the Queen has wanted to keep together for a very long time for sentimental reasons, which at her age she didn't really particularly want change which I think is understandable.

'But he wants to change and I think he will do that.' 

Rumours of Harry and Meghan facing the chop come as the couple's biography Finding Freedom is set to be released this summer, once more raking over royal rifts and addressing the couple's explosive Oprah Winfrey interview.
