But it appears Charles’ younger sister Anne may still keep her Princess Royal title despite any new changes, due to a simple royal rule.
Explaining the history of the Princess Royal title, constitutional expert Iain MacMarthanne told Express.co.uk: “King Charles I was the first monarch to create his eldest daughter, Mary, Princess Royal, in 1642.
“This was apparently at the instance of his wife Queen Henrietta Maria, daughter of King Henry IV of France at whose court it was customary for the monarch’s eldest daughter to be known as Madame Royal.
“Henrietta Maria sough parity for her own daughter, especially so when Mary went to the Netherlands having married William II of Orange.
“Since Mary there have been a further six de jure creations including the present holder, Princess Anne, with one additional Jacobite creation by King James VII & II whilst in exile.
“The title itself is not automatically given to an eldest daughter, remaining as a gift of the sovereign at their discretion.”Once created the holder enjoys it for life even if there is a new succession.
“The Queen’s aunt, The Princess Mary, was Princess Royal during the reign of her father George V; those of her brothers Edward VIII and George VI; and finally her niece Elizabeth II.
“Princess Anne was herself created Princess Royal by her mother, the Queen, in 1987, in recognition of her service to the monarchy and to her many charities and patronages.
“Looking to the future and assuming Prince William becomes King it can be anticipated, should the title be free to be given and that he is so minded, that his daughter Princess Charlotte, might in time, become the next Princess Royal as the eldest daughter of the monarch.
“When the Queen steps down, Charles, his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Anne and the Earl and Countess of Wessex are likely to fill the shoes of Meghan and Harry.

Speaking to talkRADIO, she said: “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.”
She said: “In fact, she will be grateful for him to be taking over in making I imagine quite big decisions on behalf of the Royal Family.”
