LONDON, ENGLAND: As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex gear up for the release of 'Harry & Meghan', a royal expert has claimed that King Charles would be ‘triggered’ to revoke Harry and Meghan’s royal titles if they 'directly attack' the Princess of Wales in their upcoming bombshell Netflix docu-series.

Earlier this week, royal commentator Michael Cole suggested on GB news that the new Monarch has the option to strip the Sussexes’ royal title after the release of their new docu-series and Duke of Sussex’s memoir, 'Spare'. He stated that the Palace’s response to the Lady Susan Hussey controversy demonstrates that the Royal family is not afraid to act swiftly in the face of crisis. 'We saw how swiftly Buckingham Palace moved to cut loose Lady Susan Hussey after only 60 years of service to the crown at the weekend. We'll have to see what's in there, but it looks as if it's bare-knuckle fighting, and the gloves are off," Cole explained.

Cole claimed that the Royal Family has been adopting a "never complain, never explain" mentality in the wake of Netflix’s new docu-series release and added it will be hard for them to stay quiet if it targeted the Princess of Wales. He even warned that Charles might consider rescinding the couple's titles after the documentary's premiere. "He can remove the title HRH, Her Royal Highness, His Royal Highness. It was done when Diana divorced immediately… that's big medicine that means something a great deal," the expert noted.

"The King does have that sanction, or maybe they will try to never explain, never respond to it. I think it would be hard for them to do that," Cole said, according to Daily Mail. "What will trigger that is if there are direct attacks on his [Prince William's] wife Catherine, the Princess of Wales, I think that might trigger it."

Experts have reportedly been speculating that the bombshell documentary series will touch upon the Princess of Wales' life before she married into the Royal Family in 2011. In the second trailer for their docu-series, Prince Harry was heard blasting the "pain and suffering of women marrying into this institution" as footage of Kate facing a "feeding frenzy" of photographers in 2007 was shown.

Backing the claims, Jack Royston, chief royal correspondent at Newsweek, asserted that the second trailer of the series suggests that the documentary will touch upon Kate’s early life. "We've had Kate in both the trailers. In the most recent one there's a strapline underneath which is a headline from a magazine cover," Jack said on Good Morning Britain, as per Daily Mail. The magazine also carried an allegation that the Queen was embarrassed when photographs of her drunk in public were on the front cover. Royston also predicted Netflix would revisit a story from 2018 which claimed that Meghan made Kate cry when she unfavorably compared Princess Charlotte to her best friend's daughter during a bridesmaid fitting.
