    What Are The New Titles Of Prince Harry And Meghan’s Kids? Will King Charles Allow It?

    There are new changes coming in the titles and roles of the British royal family members after the death of her majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. So what about the two youngest members of the family- Archie and Lilibet, son and daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? Will there be new titles added to the name of these kids? And what about the new monarch? Will King Charles allow the royal children to take up the title of Prince and Princess?

    As Queen Elizabeth II passed away on Thursday, there have been major changes and drama hovering around. King Charles III officially addressed the world yesterday, mourning the death of his mother. Through the inaugural speech, he also passed over his previous titles to Prince William, and extended his love for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. With the accession, King Charles becomes the oldest person to assume the British throne. Titles are shifting with the new developments. So what are the titles of Harry’s and Megan’s children, Archie and Lilibet?

    With King Charles III being named the new monarch, it is automatic that the kids of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have the right to the titles of Prince and Princess. According to a 1917 law from King George V, also known as the George V Convention or 1917 Letters Patent, “the children of a Sovereign and the children of a Sovereign’s sons are entitled to HRH-style titles and the distinction of a Prince or Princess prefix to their name.

    It will be up to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry, and Meghan, whether their children will use the titles of Prince and Princess. For the moment, 3-year- old Archie and 1-year-old Lilibet are the first ever Prince and Princess of Sussex.

    Now the new monarch has all the right to amend this long-held law. According to The News, King Charles can limit the number of key royals, if he wishes. He can also issue certain responsibilities and roles that are expected to be done with respect to the titles in the modern monarchy. Charles could issue a Letters Patent specifically amending Archie and Lilibet’s right to be called Prince and Princess if he decides to do any of the above-mentioned.

    Though new titles will be added to the name of their kids, there won’t be any new titles automatically passed over to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The couple had led the British Royal family to one of its most challenging times in royal history during the Queen’s reign. They stepped back from the title of senior members of the royalty back in early 2020. Harry and Meghan also decided to split their time between the United Kingdom and the United States.

    Trouble brewed as accusations were aimed at either side. They included the problems between the two brothers, William and Harry, allegations of racism against an unnamed royal, and the royal family’s failure to help Meghan when she was suicidal. Even between these rifts, the couple did love and appreciate the Queen for her caring gestures in various interviews.
