A Conservative MP has called on a new law that would allow for the stripping of Harry and Meghan's royal titles.

The legislation, being proposed by Isle of Wight MP Bob Seely, would see members of the royal family who "trash" the institution stripped of their titles.

He said that he would present his Titles Deprivation 1917 Act Amendment Bill in the next couple of weeks as he attempts to “strip the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their royal titles”.

Writing for the Mail on Sunday, the MP said: “I’m not a republican and support the monarchy, but after the latest instalment of the couple’s feud with the rest of the royal family, I believe that Parliament and the Privy Council should consider a nuclear option.

“The Duke and Duchess [of Sussex] can be Mr and Mrs like the rest of us.

“My Titles Deprivation 1917 Act Amendment Bill would allow a vote in Parliament to advise the ancient advisory Privy Council to strip a member of the royal family of their titles.

“My aim is simple: if someone doesn’t want to be royal, that is a decision we respect – but they should not keep the titles and privileges if they trash an institution that plays an important part in our nation’s life.”

This comes after the racism row was reignited with the release of Omid Scobie's tell-all book about Harry and Meghan titled Endgame.

The Dutch copies of this book were pulled from shelves recently after it emerged that two of those identified as having allegedly questioned the skin colour of the couple's son were named.

Mr Scobie said he has “never submitted a book that had their names in it”.

Mr Seely was not among the 20 MPs drawn out of the Private Members’ Bill ballot and therefore does not have priority to bring forward a proposal.

This means the bill is highly unlikely to pass through the stages of parliament in its current form due to time restraints.
