Detail in new Archie picture confirms rumors are true

One of the reasons why Harry and Meghan decided to move to the US was to have more privacy. But while they haven’t been that private about speaking about their past – for example, through the Netflix series aired last year and Harry’s book, Spare – their family life has been kept relatively secret.

Harry and Meghan have barely posted any pictures of their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, but in the Netflix series last year, fans finally got to see some insight into what the two young children look like.Prince Archie turned four on May 6, the day his grandfather, King Charles II, was crowned King. However, he wasn’t the only one who was bestowed with a new title this year.

“The children’s titles have been a birthright since their grandfather became monarch. This matter has been settled for some time in alignment with Buckingham Palace,” a spokesman for the couple said.

The Royal Family’s website has been updated accordingly – Archie and Lilibet are now listed as Prince Archie of Sussex and Princess Lilibet of Sussex.

The fact that Archie and Lilibet now bear the titles of prince and princess has confused many. Meghan spoke about the subject during the infamous Oprah interview shortly after she and Harry relocated to the States.

“They were saying they didn’t want him to be a prince or princess, not knowing what the gender would be, which would be different from protocol,” she said.

More simply explained, the monarch’s grandchildren have the right to the titles ‘His Royal Majesty’ and ‘Her Royal Majesty’. However, this does not extend to great-grandchildren.

Yet, one reported exception is the children of the eldest son of the heir. That is why the children of Prince William and Kate Middleton – the Prince and Princess of Wales – were given the royal titles Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis while Queen Elizabeth was still alive.

Archie and Lilibet became eligible for their royal titles after the Queen passed and Charles became monarch. So, irrespective of any circumstances regarding Harry and Meghan, the children are entitled to them.

“Won’t be using it in everyday life”
As per the Daily Mirror, Harry and Meghan are understood not to want to deny their children their birthright. Instead, it’s their wish that Archie and Lilibet can decide if they wish to keep or drop their titles when they are older.

Archie and Lilibet will most likely not use their royal titles daily. Instead, they will probably be reserved solely for formal settings.

“It wasn’t clear if they would use them or not since Harry and Meghan have left the family as working royals and headed to the States,” TalkTV‘s Royal Editor Sarah Hewson told Sky.

“We understand discussions took place after the Queen’s funeral and it has been agreed that they will be known formally as prince and princess – although Harry and Meghan won’t be using it in everyday life.”

Harry and Meghan have been very outspoken about their life within the royal sphere. However, critics argue their penchant for talking about the royals – for example, in their Netflix, Spotify, and book deals – is simply so they can earn money.

Meanwhile, the couple have made sure not to have their children’s photos taken, nor do they post pictures of them on social media. However, in the Netflix documentary released in December, Harry and Meghan showed some insights into Archie and Lilibet’s childhood.

But while Archie and her sister are living a great life in sunny California, the truth is that they are far, far away from their cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, in the UK.
