Princess Diana's ex-butler Paul Burrell has demanded that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle be stripped of their royal titles as the couple's Netflix documentary looms.

The trailer for the six-part documentary into the couple's move was released last week, with the miniseries set to give an insight into their relationship and why they stepped back from the Royal Family.

And Paul Burrell, who worked with Princess Diana for 10 years, spoke to Piers Morgan on Talk TV last night (Monday, December 5), and had some harsh words to say.

"The don't want to be members of the Royal Family, so why should they trade on royal titles?" he said, labelling pair's actions as "self-obsessed narcissism".

Despite his criticisms, the 64-year-old said Diana was very proud of "her boys being members of the Royal Family".

"She always thought it was Harry's job to be William's wingman," he added. "To be there for him on his path to monarchy."

Burrell said he liked Harry, but the documentary "crossed a line" for him.

Talk TV contributor Paula Rhone-Adrien said that the couple's side of the story must be heard.

"We're talking about racism," she told Piers.

It comes after royal expert Russell Myers criticised the upcoming documentary. Marking the release of their upcoming documentary with a minute-long teaser trailer, the Sussexes were labelled as "just extraordinary" by Myers.

Myers said: "For a couple of wanting privacy, they've just blown it out of the water."

His comment comes as podcast host Zoe Forsey noted: "It's very dramatic, isn't it? I pictured it was going to be more fly on the wall, behind the scenes… and I thought it was gonna be very soft, but it's not – it sounds like they're going hard.

"There's a clip of Meghan crying and Harry kind of leaning back on his chair looking very, very distressed.

"You've got Harry using that quote – which he’s said quite a few times before but it is still very powerful – 'I had to do everything I could to protect my family'."
