Prince Harry and Meghan Defend Their Children’s Birthright

The Royal Family news and updates say Prince Harry and Meghan Markle defend their children’s rights to use royal titles.

Prince Harry and Meghan released a statement defending the right of their children, Archie and Lilibet, to use their royal titles. They said that it is the birthright of their children to be called prince and princess.

Lilibet, their youngest child, was recently christened in their home in California. The announcement came after the christening. Harry and Meghan shared the news on March 8, 2023, through their representative.

Lilibet’s christening

According to the rep, Rev. John Taylor of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles christened Princess Lilibet on March 3rd. It was held in their home in Montecito, California.

It was reported that the royal couple had invited King Charles III, Camilla Parker Bowles, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. But none of them were able to attend the christening.

The rule of titles for princes and princesses

Archie and Lilibet didn’t receive titles when they were born because they were only great-grandchildren of the monarch. It was a different case for Prince William and Kate Middleton because Prince William was the firstborn son of the heir to the throne at that time, that’s why their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, were able to use the titles prince and princess.

The rule of titles was introduced by King George V in 1917. But after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Archie and Lilibet were afforded titles because their grandfather, King Charles III, became monarch.

Harry and Meghan cited this rule in their statement. They said that the children’s titles were a birthright since their grandfather had become the monarch. They also said that this matter had been settled in alignment with Buckingham Palace.

Harry and Meghan reportedly decided that the titles wouldn’t be used in everyday settings but for formal situations alone.

The official website of the Royal Family has also been recently updated to show the new titles of Harry and Meghan’s children. Their titles used to be Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor. In the recent update, they are now Prince Archie of Sussex and Princess Lilibet of Sussex.

King Charles III is to be formally crowned on May 6, 2023. It will also be Prince Archie’s 4th birthday. Harry and Meghan have yet to confirm their attendance at the celebration.
