Isle of Wight MP Bob Seely will lead the charge to strip Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, of their royal titles.

Royal family members who "trash" the institution could be stripped of their titles under a new law proposed by Mr Seely. 

The Island MP took aim at Harry and Meghan as he outlined his hopes to bring forward legislation in the House of Commons. 

Mr Seely said he will present his Titles Deprivation 1917 Act Amendment Bill in the next couple of weeks in a bid to “strip the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their royal titles.”

Last year, Downing Street announced it did not support Mr Seely's proposal to bring legislation that could strip the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their royal titles.

Writing for the Mail on Sunday today (December 3), Mr Seely 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 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.”

The racism row was reignited after the release (November 28) of Omid Scobie’s tell-all book, Endgame.

Dutch copies of the book were pulled from shelves in the Netherlands when they were found to have identified two individuals said to have questioned the skin colour of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son.

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.

It means the Bill is highly unlikely to make progress through Parliament in its proposed form due to a lack of time to consider it.

The County Press has approached Mr Seely for comment.
