Queen Almost Downgraded Harry's And Meghan's Titles But Didn’t Want To Be ‘Petty’

In case ya missed it, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will no longer be using their super-fancy HRH titles as they step down from royal duties. The whole thing is a little complicated, but basically, the couple will still be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and they’re simply no longer ‘His Royal Highness’ and ‘Her Royal Highness.’
This seems like a good middle ground but get this: Apparently, the queen considered entirely stripping Meghan and Harry of their duke and duchess titles. According to the Evening Standard, Her Majesty contemplated making Harry use his lesser title, the Earl of Dumbarton, and making Meghan a countess (similar to Prince Edward and Sophie, the Earl and Countess of Wessex). Yikes.
