The two Russians claimed to be Greta and her father Svante.
From March 31, the monarch’s grandson and American former actress Meghan will no longer use their HRH styles as they pursue a new life of personal and financial freedom, mostly in North America.
According to the tapes, which reportedly feature Prince Harry, he comments on his decision to step down from the royal family.
He tells the Russians: ‘And this decision certainly wasn’t the easy one but it was the right decision for our family, the right decision to be able to protect my son.
‘And I think there’s a hell of a lot of people around the world that can identify and respect us for putting our family first.
‘But, yeah, it’s a tricky one, but we will start a new life.’
The audio continues with Harry confiding: ‘You forget, I was in the military for ten years so I’m more normal than my family would like to believe.
‘But certainly being in a different position now gives us the ability to say things and do things that we might not have been able to do.’
