Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter might just be getting a title after all. The couple had earlier raised concerns over this for their elder son, Archie while they were still active members of the royal family when Queen Elizabeth was alive. A title can guarantee the royal higher protection and now that King Charles is the monarch, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s children will be getting the title of Prince and Princess thanks to an ancient rule.
Established over 100 years ago by King George V in 1917, the rule states that the title of prince or princess goes to the sons and daughters of the sovereign, along with the sovereign’s son’s children and the eldest son of the Prince of Wales’s eldest son. Lilibet, who was named after her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth and her grandmother, Princess Diana, along with her brother Archie, can now be considered Prince and Princess respectively as the grandchildren of a sovereign.
Born in 2021, after the royals left the family, Lilibet was born in Montecito, California and hasn’t experienced the royal lifestyle as her brother and cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis did. In their bombshell documentary series, Harry And Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have also talked about how happy they were to protect their youngest from all of the drama.
