A ROYAL expert has claimed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are keeping their royal titles to ‘earn money’.

Appearing on GB News, Angela Levin said: “You can't have your cake, eat it and actually spit it out. If you criticise the monarchy endlessly, and think how awful it is, and everybody's trapped who's in there, why do you want to hold the title? if it's just for money that's not right. You can't just use royal titles to earn money for yourself.”

Ms Levin said the next few weeks, which will see the release of a new Netflix documentary, and Harry’s new book, will be critical.

She said: “I think we need to see what the documentary on Netflix will be like, which is coming out in December. And also, what Prince Harry's book will be like when it comes out at the beginning of January. If he's going to attack the Royals and attack his father and attack his stepmother, I don’t think they will like that - they will be very upset.”

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's highly anticipated docuseries will reportedly drop on the streaming giant this December, according to reports. Liz Garbus, an Oscar-nominated documentary director who has previously worked on critically acclaimed projects like What Happened, Miss Simone? and Girlhood, will helm the series.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex first signed a multiyear deal with Netflix back in 2020, for which they set out to produce docuseries, feature films, scripted shows, and children's programming.

Meghan opened up about working with Garbus in a recent interview with Variety.

"It's nice to be able to trust someone with our story—a seasoned director whose work I've long admired—even if it means it may not be the way we would have told it. But that's not why we're telling it. We're trusting our story to someone else, and that means it will go through their lens," she told the outlet. "It's interesting. My husband has never worked in this industry before. For me, having worked on Suits, it's so amazing to be around so much creative energy and to see how people work together and share their own points of view. That's been really fun."

Though there were whispers around the time their Netflix deal was announced that the couple would take part in a reality series, a spokesperson for the Sussexes shut the rumours down.

And Meghan said in an interview with The Cut earlier this year, "The piece of my life I haven't been able to share, that people haven't been able to see, is our love story. I hope that is the sentiment that people feel when they see any of the content or the projects that we are working on."
