Meghan Markle and Prince Harry "aren't woke," they just worry about "things that matter," unlike Brits who worry about "outdated protocols and traditions," a royal author has claimed.
Royal expert Sean Smith, author of Meghan Misunderstood, said the couple’s reported idea to have their own Archewell honours list would be a "great" idea.
Speaking to the Daily Star after the launch of his new book, Mr Smith said the UK has many outdated traditions that need a "big overhaul".
He also doesn't believe Prince Harry and Meghan are woke, a term the famous couple have been called several times for their speeches on world-events.
Speaking on the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes reported Archewell list, a list that may follow a similar format to the Queen’s birthday honours, Mr Smith said: "We have far too many outdated traditions that in my opinion, need a big overhaul.
"Nobody would ever object to any nurse ever getting an honour but just because someone is a multi-millionaire does not in my opinion mean people should get an honour."
Mr Smith said he thinks "young people would agree" with him and like Meghan and Harry, "care about things that matter."
He said: "I think young people would agree, young people care about things that matter.
"We are in a period of golden nostalgia with Brexit and reclaiming our future and all of that nonsense and in a few years, I think we'll go the other way.
"Prince Harry and Meghan aren't woke, they speak about things that matter and I hope Britain stops worrying about outdated protocols and traditions in the near future."
Mr Smith’s comments came after The Sun reported papers in the US filed for Archewell gave an indication of what an honours list will focus on.

These include: "Charitable service, education, science, literature, racial justice, gender equity, environmental stewardship, youth empowerment, health and mental health."
Rumours quickly spread following the move by the Duke and Duchess, as reports claimed the pair were trying to rival the Queen's official honours list.
A spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shut down the claims and said Meghan and Harry look forward to "sharing more about Archewell’s work in the weeks ahead,” but denied they were planning to "rival the Queen".
