    Meghan Markle's conversations with Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie has led her to a change of heart regarding Archie and Lilibet’s royal titles, according to a royal expert.

    Royal commentator Neil Sean claims that Meghan now recognises the importance of her two children keeping their titles after she and Prince Harry were forced to drop their HRH titles after stepping down as working royals.

    The couple exited the UK and moved to the US in 2020 after marrying two years previous.

    While the pair are unable to use their HRH titles, they do go by "the Duke and Duchess of Sussex".

    King Charles will have the final word on whether Archie and Lilibet will be assigned HRH titles, but they are currently allowed to be referred to as Prince and Princess.

    During Meghan and Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex said she had no attachment to the "grandeur" of royal titles, but Mr Sean claims she's gone back on her initial thoughts on the subject.

    Speaking to The Mirror, he said: "Harry and Meghan are very, very keen to cling onto those royal titles.

    "After much deliberation, Meghan decided that the titles would be a good thing, not just for her but for both her children too.

    "Meghan become very friendly with senior members of the monarchy, predominately Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice.

    "After this, Meghan realised how useful a title can be, particularly when you want to move in the correct circles.

    "That is the reason why they want to clutch hold of titles."

    Ahead of Harry's impending release of his memoir 'Spare', biographer Tom Bower said the book will be "make or break" for Harry and Meghan.

    Bower told The Sun: "This book is really make or break. I imagine that King Charles has been warned that any retaliation won't be pretty.

    "All that King Charles can really do is to withhold the titles for his grandchildren Archie and Lilibet.

    "Ultimately, I suppose, he could take away Harry and Meghan's titles as well, but that's pretty drastic.
