- Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s two kids, Archie and Lilibet now have royal titles.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s kids now have their own royal titles
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle must be elated as their two children, Archie and Lilibet now have their own Royal titles.
Despite the couple’s worsening relationship with the Royal family, the King decided to give his grandchildren their own titles.
A spokesperson for the Sussexes referred to their youngest child Lilibet as a princess. It was for the first time while announcing the 21-month-old’s recent christening.
The rep said in a statement,
“I can confirm that Princess Lilibet was christened on Friday, March 3, by the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rev. John Taylor,”
People magazine also noted that the Royal Family’s official website is planning to update the siblings’ titles from Master Archie and Miss Lilibet to Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
It is also noted the titles are just for formal settings and not for everyday use.
Due to the rule established by King George V in 1917, Archie, 3, and Lili became a prince and princess, respectively. It was when their grandfather ascended the throne upon his mother Queen Elizabeth II’s death. The 96-year-old monarch passed away in September 2022.
King George stated in the Letters Patent,
“The grandchildren of the sons of any such sovereign in the direct male line (save only the eldest living son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales) shall have and enjoy in all occasions the style and title enjoyed by the children of dukes of these our realms,”

Harry’s family was not present at Lilibet’s christening
Archie and Lili did not receive the royal titles upon their birth because they were the great-grandchildren of the then-monarch, The Queen.
Prince William and Princess Catherine’s three children, Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, all received their titles upon birth. It is because their father is the future King of England.
The good news comes after King Charles, Camilla and The Princess and Princess of Wales allegedly skipped out on attending Lilibet’s christening last Friday. The royals reportedly ditched the ceremony despite getting the invite.
However, for the occasion, Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, and Lili’s godfather, Tyler Perry were present. A godmother whose name is not disclosed was also present.
Royal fans are confused with Archie and Lilibet’s titles. It is because Harry and Meghan quit their senior royal duties in January 2020 and moved to California.
The pair most recently discussed their royal tensions in their Netflix series ”Harry & Meghan,” in which they complained about not getting enough privacy while in the UK.
Harry’s memoir Spare further damaged his relationship with his family.
