At present, nothing is a foregone conclusion, as there is no official information about the changes to the royal family titles yet. The only certainty is taking the throne by Charles. Accordingly, the titles should change the grandchildren of the king. Will this happen?
According to the hitherto prevailing rules in the royal family, titles after the death of the king / queen should automatically pass on to the next generations. Following the rules inheritance to the thronegrandchildren of King Charles should receive princely titles.
So now Archie and Lilibet they can be called prince and princess. It is known, however, that this matter has long seemed unexplained, and Meghan herself showed great determination to protect her children with appropriate titles.
Duchess Meghan and her craving for children’s titles
Meghan Markle, in an interview conducted by Oprah Winfrey, showed surprise and indignation that Archie did not deserve princely title. The Duchess of Sussex cared about this fact, among others due to the fact that she wanted to provide for her children adequate protection.
In addition, Mehgan suggested the decision not to award Archie the title does racist background. The cause, according to her, could be her son’s mixed race. For all these reasons, the Duchess was very concerned about the official titles for her children.
Do Harry and Meghan’s children deserve titles now?
By all laws so far, Archie and Lilibet should be princes. The case will be clear when the situation after the death of the 96-year-old queen calms down. Then we can expect official information about changes in the titles of the royal family.
Existing right to receive titles
Under protocols established by King George V, grandfather of Queen Elizabeth II, the sovereign’s children and grandchildren are automatically entitled to the title of prince or princess. It follows that the children of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – Archie and Lilibet – should already be a prince and a princess.
