The children of Prince Harry and Meghan markle will not obtain the status of “HRH” (His Royal Highness) when they are made prince and princess by King Charles III, a source has claimed.
Archiethree years, and Lilibetone year, should be officially named “prince and princessin the near future, as Charles has agreed to issue Letters Patent to grant them his titles.
Several sources claim that following tense discussions between the new king and the sussexthey would have been “unhappy” that their children did not end up obtaining the titles of “HRH“.
Harry and Meghan allegedly argued that Prince Andrew’s daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie of York, have the status of “HRH“although they are not working members of the royal family.
A source told the Sun: “Harry and Meghan were worried about the security issue and being prince and princess entitles them to have certain levels of royal security.”
“There has been a lot of talk over the past week. They insisted thatArchie and Lilibet become prince and princess. They’ve been firm on this since the Queen’s death, but they’re furious thatArchie and Lilibet cannot assume Royal Highness status. That’s the deal. They can be prince and princess, but not “royal highnesses” because they don’t work in the royal family.“
Archie and Lilibet have been entitled to the titles of prince and princess since the death of the Queen under the rules established by King George V in 1917 – which limited the number of members of the royal family using “HRH“.
The Royal Expert Phil damper analyzed the situation in the tabloids British: “Let Archie and Lilibet to become a prince and a princess, but not to have titles of HRH would be a good compromise. The same thing happened to Diana and Fergie after their divorce from Charles and Andrew. And of course Sarah Ferguson is still the Duchess of York today.“
“Harry and Meghan should be delighted because using “Prince” or “Princess” sounds good in the United States.“
“But even if their children are still high in the line of succession, they will not work in the royal family, so it is only natural that they should not have titles. A lot of people think that Harry and Meghan themselves should lose their titles, so I think they should just accept that compromise and be grateful because it could be a lot worse for them and their children.“
Meghan has previously claimed that the title of HRH had been refused Archie because of his race.
And when Oprah Winfrey, the American television host, asked him if it was “important” thatArchie be called a prince, she replied that she had no attachment to the “grandeur” of official titles.
Since their sensational departure in March 2020, the sussex ceased to use their own royal highness status after deciding to step down as senior royals.
