Meghan Markle has changed her mind on keeping royal titles following conversations with Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, according to one royal commentator. Neil Sean, citing a “very good source,” pointed out that Meghan had previously disregarded the importance of titles. However, after seeing how useful the titles have been for both Eugenie and Beatrice, who are friends with Meghan, the Duchess is now determined to cling onto them.
During Meghan’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex had previously appeared to dismiss the importance of royal titles.
At the time, she said: “All the grandeur surrounding this stuff is an attachment I don’t personally have.
“I’ve been a waitress, an actress, a princess, a Duchess – I’ve always still just been Meghan, right?
“I’ve been clear on who I am, independent of all that stuff, and the most important title I’ll ever have is mom. I know that.”

However, Mr Sean suggested that Meghan has since had a “dramatic change of heart regarding titles”.
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.”
