Prince Charles Will Most Likely Bestow Royal Titles To Archie, Lili, Royal Expert Says
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children will grow up with royal titles.
According to royal historian Robert Lacey, it is unlikely for Prince Charles to break the tradition of giving royal titles to all his grandchildren when he ascends the throne.
“I don’t think he will make the unpopular and hostile move of removing the royal status of his grandchildren,” he said.
Other than Prince Harry and Markle’s children, Prince Charles will also most likely name Camilla as queen when he ascends the throne.
Meanwhile, Joe Little, the managing editor of Majesty magazine said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will have a say on whether they want their kids to be styled as His or Her Royal Highness.
“As the grandchildren of the Sovereign, they have the right to be upgraded to the style of His or Her Royal Highness. But that begs a question of whether Harry and Meghan want that. Do they prefer what Prince Edward and Sophie have and not have their children as Their Royal Highnesses with a view to them leading relatively normal lives?” he said.
In recent weeks, the tabloids have also been speculating about Archie and Lili’s future.
Some of them are saying that it’s unlikely for Prince Charles to give his grandchildren royal titles because he’s estranged from Prince Harry and Markle.
At least one tabloid alleged that Prince Charles always doubted Prince Harry’s ability to represent the royal family. So, he wasn’t surprised when he announced his decision to quit.
And since he’s no longer considered as a senior working royal, Prince Charles has no reason to give his grandchildren royal titles.
Another tabloid also claimed that Prince Charles already made the final decision to not give his grandchildren royal titles.
However, it is important to note that the heir to the throne cannot make this decision until he ascends the throne.
For now, only the queen has the ability to decide which members of the royal family will be given royal titles.
However, it is important to note that the parents of her grandchildren also had a say on the matter.
For instance, the queen offered to give Princess Anne’s children royal titles, but Princess Royal refused.
The queen also offered to give Prince Andrew’s children royal titles, and he accepted it. As such, his children are known as Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
