Thomas Mace-Archer-Mills, founder of the British Monarchists Society, made the comments as Republic, which calls for an elected head of state, is set to launch an anti-monarchy billboard advertising campaign across the UK. Mr Mace-Archer-Mills claimed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who quit royal duties last year for a new life in California, have become the “poster couple” for republicans.

The royal commentator told the Daily Star: “Harry and Meghan are in fact the poster couple for anti-monarchical sentiment which is being used by Republic.

“If those closest to the crown such as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex can openly work against the institution without repercussion, and undermine Harry’s family, then why shouldn’t this example be used and continued by anti-monarchy groups around the world?

“The Sussexes have provided an empowered roadmap for republicans to unleash their worst on the British monarchy and the nation’s next King.”

Harry and Meghan stepped back from royal duties in March 2020 and moved to America – a move dubbed Megxit.

In their Oprah Winfrey interview earlier this year, they made a set of explosive claims about the Royal Family including racism accusations.

Harry made further controversial comments about his family in the following weeks.

This comes amid an ongoing rift between the two brothers.

7.35am update: Prince Edward set to miss out on Duke title, says source

Prince Edward might miss out on the honour of inheriting the title of Duke of Edinburgh as Prince Charles is reluctant to hand it over, a source has claimed.

The Earl of Wessex, 57, is expected to inherit the title when the current holder of the title, his brother the Prince of Wales, becomes King.

However, a source close to Charles told The Times the future king is reluctant to hand over the title.

The source said: “The Prince is the Duke of Edinburgh as it stands, and it is up to him what happens to the title. It will not go to Edward.”

7.30am update: William and Harry following ‘own interpretations of royal duty’

Prince William and Prince Harry are “following their own interpretations of royal duty”, Princess Diana’s former private secretary has said.

Patrick Jephson said that the two Princes bear a “heavy burden of expectation and responsibility” as they grow older than their mother was when she died.

“For them, every new morning is one more than she was allowed,” he wrote in the Daily Mail.
