Souvenir merchandise in Prince Harry and Meghan's English hometown of Windsor is being reduced in price, following their split from the royal family.

Gift shops on the streets next to Windsor Castle were cutting prices Monday.

Prices were reduced on mugs featuring the couple, a biscuit tin, tea tins and other memorabilia of their royal wedding.

Prince Harry and Meghan will stop using their royal titles and give up state funding, so they can pursue an independent life.

On the streets of Windsor, opinions are mixed.

"I think it's to do with Meghan to be honest with you, not harry. It's his wife so I think she has more or less a say in it,” said Windsor resident Stan Turney.

"You know it's this stupid imprinting of a dynasty that's six, seven, eight, nine hundred years gone. You know, it's just crap, the whole lot of it is absolute crap,” said local resident Bill Rawley.

Under the new arrangement, they will split their time between Britain and North America, where they will be mainly based.

Harry said Sunday there was no option but for him and his American wife Meghan to step back from their royal roles in a deal with his grandmother Queen Elizabeth.
