Perhaps in the ultimate First World problem, King Charles decided to change the title of HRH to Harry and Meghan Markle Although children, it is reported that they will become princes and princesses.

of Sun report A new arrangement to formalize the names of Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet is expected to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Lilibet finally meets Grandpa Prince Charles

Grandchildren of the king are given the title of prince or princess, according to a custom that began in 1917. Great-grandchildren are not, but an exception is made for the grandchildren of the heir to the throne. That is why the Cambridge children are known as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

When Meghan said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that her children were unfairly given titles, students at the Unwritten Law British Convention declared Meghan wrong That’s why.

But now that her grandfather has become king, she will prove entirely right if they are not given the title. would say

There is no doubt that their children should automatically become HRHs under the 1917 Regulations.

Likewise, few would deny that it would be very strange if Archie and Lilibet were publicly using the HRH title when their parents were asked not to do so and agreed to the request. .

Prince Charles’ office declined to comment on the report to The Daily Beast. The Sussexes’ office has been reached for comment.

However Sun stated that the decision not to create Archie and Lilibet as His Highnesses (HRH) angered the children’s parents.

of Sun “Harry and Meghan are concerned about security issues and being a prince and princess entitles them to a certain level of royal security. Archie and Lilibet have been claiming to be Prince and Princess, they’ve been relentless since the Queen died, but they’re furious that Archie and Lilibet won’t get the HRH titles. That’s the deal: they can be princes and princesses, but they can’t be HRH because they don’t work for the royal family.”

Of course, there are many other non-working royals who are HRH. Prince Andrew’s daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, come to mind.

If the royal family wishes to change the rules and henceforth limit the issuance of HRHs to “serving royals” instead of the grandchildren of the monarch, that is of course their right. But it means big changes.

And the only losers (at least until Louis and Charlotte have kids) are Harry’s kids.

It doesn’t look good.
