“They want to live in America and be self-sufficient, which is fine. They can hardly expect Archie to be a Prince.
“Prince Charles has always said he wants a slimmed-down monarchy.
“He wants a small nucleus of people to be the working royals. This would have included Harry and Meghan had they decided to stay.”
TalkRADIO host Cristo asked: “Was this as a result of Harry and Meghan saying we don’t want to be senior royals anymore, so Charles said ‘Well great, that’s made my life easier, we won’t make your children princes or princess then’. Or was this planned all along?”
Mr Rae responded: “It was the first scenario. Let’s not forget that Archie is still technically the Earl of Dumbarton but the couple themselves decided they didn’t want to use that title.
“Some people thought they were sitting back, hoping that Archie would one day be prince, but they got that wrong.
“It puts into context that comment Meghan made, that the royals didn’t want Archie to be a Prince.
“It’s interesting that this has happened.
“And this has been leaked by a friend or a source from the Sussexes camp and now we know why they were so vitriolic in the Oprah Winfrey interview.”
Leaks from the couple in the past have frustrated officials inside the Palace, with Ingrid Seward, of Majesty magazine, claiming that the royals “hate” their private conversations being leaked to the press.
She said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were going to “really cause a problem” if details of more private chats were revealed in the press.
Charles reportedly told Harry that he will change a key document preventing his grandson from inheriting a title that would once have been his birthright.
It also explains Meghan’s claim to Oprah in March, when she said: They [the Royal Family] were saying they didn’t want him to be a Prince or a Princess.”
A source added: “This is what nobody realised from the interview. The real thing was that Charles was going to take active steps to strip Archie of his ultimate birthright.”
