Three years on from their announcement, royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams has spoken exclusively to Express.co.uk about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s strained relationship with the monarchy.

Speaking of the monarchy, Mr Fitzwilliams said: “The monarchy has, with the exception of Cromwell’s protectorate, lasted over 1,000 years.

“[It] is an integral part of Britain’s DNA.”

He added: “The Sussexes would weaken it if they could.

“They have harmed it, even in Britain, especially among the young.”

Despite no longer being a senior royal, Harry is still fifth in the royal line of succession.

Harry and Meghan’s two children, Archie and Lilibet, are still sixth and seventh in line, as stated on the official monarchy website.

The royal expert claimed that the monarchy “lies in the hands” of Prince William, who is next in line to the throne, and his wife, Kate, as well as their three children, who all fall before Harry in the line of succession.

In their official departure statement, Harry and Meghan declared their wish to “make a transition” and to “carve out a progressive new role” within the monarchy.

They wished to “become financially independent”, whilst continuing to support the late Queen.

Following their departure, and completing their final engagement in March 2020, the couple signed a multi-million dollar deal with the popular streaming service, Netflix.

The couple released their two-part Netflix series, titled Harry and Meghan, in December 2022.
