Reports are swirling that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may lose some of their royal titles, following concerns TV bosses may use them when promoting the Duke's Netflix documentaries and appearances on talk shows.

Should it come to fruition, the 36-year-old Duke of Sussex would be allowed to keep anything that is a private patronage including the Invictus Games and WellChild.

Sources claim Prince Harry is "upset" by rumours of the move, according to The Sun.

It comes following the announcement Harry and Meghan, who is pregnant with the couple's second child, will do an interview with Oprah Winfrey, where she can "ask anything she wants" during the 90-minute chat which is scheduled for March 7.

The Queen is reported to have every faith that Harry and Meghan will honour royal protocol during the interview, according to the Daily Mail.

It's believed the interview will be split into two parts. Meghan will speak with Oprah first about everything from "stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work to how she is handling life under intense public pressure".

Harry will then join the pair and they will speak about their move to the US and their future "hopes and dreams for their expanding family".

"There is no secret that Americans love a Brit in army uniform," a former friend of the Duke said. "Harry is far more marketable pictured with his Army uniform at events in the UK than as a bloke in a shirt and chinos."

"There would always be a suspicion military titles and patronages could end up being used on a documentary or television show somewhere," another said.

It is believed Harry and Meghan will continue with more interviews and appearances once their 12-month review is over at the end of March.

Harry is set to star in an episode of James Corden's The Late Late Show after already filming Carpool Karaoke on an open-top bus.

The palace has said it won't comment on the couple's status until the review is finished.
