According to royal biographer Angela Levin, the family may drop the couple under the excuse of a cost-cutting overhaul — with Prince Charles leading the charge in ditching the duo.

"Prince Charles has wanted for a very long time to cut the monarchy down to save costs and to make people be worth the money that they got from the taxpayer," Levin insisted before speculating: "I imagine that might be when Harry and Meghan are ditched from being members of the Royal family."

The Harry: A Biography of a Prince author told The Sun that Queen Elizabeth II has resisted cutting ties with the "outer edge" of the monarchy "for sentimental reasons." However, Harry's dad — who is heir to the throne — doesn't appear to be as emotional over the matter.

Charles "wants to change and I think he will do that," Levin speculated.

The possible move would trim the Firm down to just the Prince of Wales and wife Duchess Camilla as well as Prince William, wife Kate Middleton and their kids: George, Louis and Charlotte, the Daily Mail reported. While the move would result in other royals losing their titles and patronages, they could take on paid work to make a living.

The red-headed prince, 36, and Suits alum, 39, stepped back from their senior royal duties and moved to the U.S. last year to start their lives anew. The soon-to-be parents-of-two still hold their titles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The couple's departure and move to California — along with their two multi-million dollar deals with Netflix and Spotify — certainly hindered their relationship with the royal family. Adding to the divide, Harry and Meghan made shocking claims against the royals last month during their CBS tell-all with Oprah Winfrey.

Levin is one of the many royal experts to predict that the rift between the duo and royals will never truly be fixed, as the family feels they can no longer trust the two.

As OK! previously reported, William and Charles communicated with Harry following the couple's interview — during which Harry said he believes his brother and dad are "trapped" in royal life. However, after the chat, Gayle King blabbed on national TV that the two spoke with Harry, revealing the chats were "not productive."

Royal commentator Phil Dampier told The Sun that other royals fear any chats they have with Harry will now "immediately leak" or be used against them.
