Readers voted in our poll after it was announced the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to be interviewed by US chat show host Oprah Winfrey. Express.co.uk asked if Meghan and Harry – who are living in California after quitting royal duties – should be stripped of their titles and patronages.
A huge 98 percent of respondents said yes, while just two percent said no.
Commenting on the poll, one reader insisted the Sussexes had “disrespected the queen by shamelessly trying to turn themselves into celebrities”.
Another fumed: “This pair are an embarrassment to the Royal Family and should be stripped of ALL their titles and privileges.”
A third blasted: “They should have lost all their privileges twelve months ago!”
One more added: “It should have been done when they left the UK.”
Former actress Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah airs on US television network CBS on March 7.
The interview comes almost one year since the Sussexes – who are expecting their second child – officially ended royal duties on March 31 for a new life of personal and financial freedom.
The Megxit arrangements are due to reviewed by the Queen after 12 months.

She will then be joined by Harry to discuss their move to America and future plans.
Oprah With Meghan And Harry: A CBS Primetime Special has been described as an “intimate conversation” by the US television network.
CBS said in a statement: “Winfrey will speak with Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, in a wide-ranging interview, covering everything from stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work to how she is handling life under intense public pressure.
“Later, the two are joined by Prince Harry as they speak about their move to the United States and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family.”
Oprah was a guest at Meghan and Harry’s royal wedding in 2018.
But she had only met the ex-Suits star once before the big day, according to the Times.
The chat show host lives near the couple, who have bought a multimillion-pound mansion in California.
Express.co.uk polled 7,158 people between 8am and 3.45pm on February 16.
