Former US President Donald Trump has asked the Queen to strip the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their titles.
In an interview with Piers Morgan, Mr Trump told host Piers Morgan’s new TalkTV show Uncensored that Harry “was flogged like no person I’ve ever seen”.
He predicted a bad ending for Harry and Meghan, branded the Duke “embarrassing” and said it was “terrible” that he missed the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral service.
Harry was absent when the royal family gathered to commemorate Philip in March, but traveled with Meghan to see his grandmother, the Queen, en route to the Invictus Games in The Hague this month for the first time in two years .
In a later interview with NBC’s Today Show, Harry appeared to issue a veiled warning to those closest to the Queen, saying he wanted to make sure she was “protected” and had “the right people around her”.
Mr Trump, who first met the Queen for tea in Windsor in 2018, said of Harry and Meghan’s Megxit saga: “The only thing I disagree with the Queen is probably one of the only things ever that I think , she should have said if that’s your choice, good. But you don’t have titles anymore, you know.”
The American billionaire added: “I want to know what will happen when Harry decides he’s had enough of being bossed around.
“Or maybe if she decides she likes another guy better. I want to know what will happen when it’s over, okay.”

He suggested: “I predicted almost everything. It will end and it will end badly.”
The Queen gave the Duchy of Sussex to her grandson on the morning of his wedding.
Peerages can only be removed by an Act of Parliament, although there are also limited circumstances in which the holder may waive hereditary peerages.
Sixth in line Harry and former Suits actress Meghan could be asked by the monarch to stop using their Sussex titles, although they would still technically keep them.
Harry, a prince by birth, would become Prince Henry (Harry) of Wales, while Meghan would become Princess Henry (Harry) of Wales, as she is not a princess herself.
After leaving the working monarchy, Harry and Meghan agreed to no longer use their HRH styles.
– Piers Morgan Uncensored is Monday to Friday at 8pm on TalkTV (Sky 526, Virgin Media 627, Freeview 237 and Freesat 217).
