I never thought I would say this... but I am starting to feel rather sorry for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Their wish to be left alone and be downgraded from the royal list has certainly been granted and the couple have surrendered all.

Now, the Royal Canadian police will not even provide them with security unless they receive payment. They can’t even use Sussex royal as a trade mark. I wouldn’t say that they have been cast off by the royal family but others certainly will. Lets’ face it; Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were amongst the most popular members of the royal family. The fact that they have decided to withdraw from royal duties is certainly a blow at a time when the British royal family is not particularly popular. Surely, there was a better solution than the straight split approach. I am sure that a role could have been found for the couple which kept them out of the spotlight but at the same time allowed them to continue with their good work.

Harry will always be a prince, and his father and brother will both one day be Kings so he can’t be excluded completely from the royal family. I do believe that it is a decision that the royal family will one day regret, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were big assets to the royal brand. Perhaps, the couple can be persuaded to return to the royal fold at a later date and perhaps both sides need to have a rethink. I am sure that a compromise could be reached...it shouldn’t be a case of all or nothing!

Feel sorry for the homeless not a couple who were gifted a fantastic property in London and then had £2,5 million spent on it and now will not even live in it. R Feel sorry for those with mental health problems and are in effect cast off by their families because they can’t cope financially. Feel sorry for those who have to endure terrible working conditions to provide for their families. Their decision,they will always be multi millionaires,perhaps this will make the hardship easier to handle for them. They have gone let’s all accept it and move on.

Jason, I think most of us in the UK would beg to differ from your opinion! Harry and Megan are not we’re not the most popular Royals! Megan didn’t even give her “Royal Life” much time! She didn’t like being second fiddle to other Royals! Why should the UK and Canadian Tax Payers pay for their security -they chose to a Walk away from being Royalty although Prince Harry will always be Prince Harry as he was born Royal!

It's part and parcel of the continuing Royal Soap Opera which keeps a large portion of Fleet Street and media busy and it sells. Pound for pound they are vastly over-paid and over-privlidged for any of the supposed good they do or income they generate, but the toadies and sycophants will keep them there because their main function is to maintain the supremacy of the aristocracy and elite class order.

Left alone ? In Hollywood ? What utter tosh.
