Meghan and Harry’s deal with the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William in January will be subject to review in March. This review could simply formalize Meghan and Harry’s exit from the royals and finalize the terms already agreed upon in early 2020.
However, you could also see the three senior royals who sat in Sandringham with Prince Harry amending the agreement with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex if they believed the transition showed the arrangement “does not work with all parties.”
Speaking of the review, a palace source said in February: “The royal family and Sussex have agreed to a 12-month initial review to ensure that the arrangement works for all parties.”
Royal author Robert Lacey believes there is a chance the review will conclude that Megan and Harry can no longer be called “royal” anymore.
However, this will not translate into the couple losing their titles.
He told Express.co.uk: “There are two addresses included, there is the status of His Royal Highness, and then there is the actual title of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“ Obviously, if a review in March concluded that they were unable to stay in the royal family, it is very likely that they would lose or lose their HR methods.
They have already put in the comment.

“The way they are being presented at the moment is that they are His Royal Highness but they have chosen not to use it, and it is not saying that they are prohibited from using it.
“If this develops in the future, I think it will be presented the same way – they choose not to be a member of the royal family anymore.
“This does not mean that they are giving up their titles.

The Queen bestowed upon them these titles.
“The world is full of people with British nicknames and they are free to do whatever they like.
“Just like any other aristocrat, their surname is with them for life. They may choose not to use it because Harry and Meghan are the star names that attract the attention of people all over the world.”
While the title can be carried by whoever conferred it, the style of His Royal Highness, symbolizing His Royal Highness, is only used to address or refer to people close to the throne line.
Megan and Harry announced in January that they would step back from their position as senior members of the royal family and in their statement touched on a half-in-and-half solution.
This would have had them continue to implement royal engagements and represent the Queen during visits or tours abroad while also being able to become financially independent and live abroad.
After meeting at Sandringham in January, the couple agreed not to use His Royal Highness’s methods – while retaining them – and also not to perform royal duties.
In return, they were allowed to maintain their care, become financially independent and live abroad with their son Archie Harrison.
Since late March, when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex officially left the royal family as full-time senior members, Meghan and Harry have made many changes in their lives.
Over the summer, the couple have been speaking out loud about voting rights ahead of the US election, the Black Lives Matter movement and support for charities amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In July, Megan, Harry, and Archie moved into their new home in Montecito, Santa Barbara.
In September, they revealed a deal with Netflix, which will make them TV producers for streaming platforms.
Over the past few months, in addition to volunteering with various charities, Megan and Harry have also worked behind the scenes at their new foundation, Archewell.
The foundation, whose website launched in late October, will focus on creating more humane and understanding communities both online and in real life.
