  • Piers Morgan wants Queen Elizabeth to strip Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of their royal titles.

  • Piers tweeted this request after Meghan spoke out about voting in the upcoming election.

Nobody likes a hater, Piers Morgan. We think Meghan Markle asking people to vote is a pretty reasonable request, but apparently Piers doesn't agree. He recently tweeted in favor of Queen Elizabeth stripping Meghan and Prince Harry of their titles due to recent comments regarding American politics.

"The Queen must strip the Sussexes of their titles," he tweeted. "They can’t remain as royals & spout off about foreign elections in such a brazenly partisan way."

Meghan made a virtual appearance at Michelle Obama's "When All Women Vote" livestream event last week and made a powerful statement about voting: "At this juncture, if we aren't part of the solution, we are part of the problem. If you aren't going out there and voting, then you're complicit. If you are complacent, you're complicit."

She continued, "We look at the attempts of voter suppression and what that's doing—it’s all the more reason we need each of you to be out there supporting each other, to understand that this fight is worth fighting and we all have to be out there mobilizing to have our voices heard."

Even though Meghan is an American, Piers took issue with her speaking about the upcoming presidential election. Ever since Meghan and Harry announced that they're stepping down from their senior royal duties, there's been a lot of controversy. Because they're no longer working members of the royal family, they are no longer referred to His and Her Royal Highness (a style used for senior members of the royal family that's usually issued to sons, daughters, grandsons, and granddaughters of the monarch). However, they still hold their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles. Only Queen Elizabeth can strip Meghan and Harry of their Sussex titles, so maybe it's just best if Piers stays out if it.
