The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved to Meghan’s home state of California after stepping back as senior royals in March 2020. After confirming they would not return to Royal Family life, Meghan, 40, and Harry, 37, were stripped of military affiliations, patronages, and their HRH titles.
Pauline Maclaran, professor of marketing and consumer research at Royal Holloway, University of London, has now claimed that the Duke and Duchess “need to really top up their associations with royalty”.
She described how they “really are nobodies in the US” without the Royal Family label, which will cause them issues in their new home “where they’re trying to establish themselves”.
Their “high profile” across the Atlantic, Professor Maclaran claimed, “is really because of their titles and their associations with British royalty”.
She told the Sun: “But the high profile is really because of their titles and their associations with British royalty.”
But a reintegration into the Royal Family fold is not likely to be on the cards, Professor Maclaran told Express.co.uk earlier this year.
The co-author of ‘Royal Fever’ described how the Sussexes’ new image across the pond would have to be axed in order to slot back into UK royal life.

She told Express.co.uk that “it’s hard to envision a split timetable and I can’t see that working”.
