King Charles III has been on the throne for a few weeks, but the situation of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle is not yet clear. As a reminder, their children Archie and Lilibet are set to become Prince and Princess, but these titles have not yet been bestowed on them as the Prince and his wife left the royal family as active members in 2020. Add to that the tensions that still seem to weigh on both sides of the Windsor clan since the shock interview the couple gave to Oprah Winfrey after moving to the United States.
Despite everything, the king seems willing to be generous if his son and wife respect his wishes.
According to Katie Nicholl, a royal expert, Charles will agree to bestow these titles on his youngest son’s children if he and his wife “pledge to respect the British Crown”.
As a reminder, the titles of Prince and Princess revert to Archie and Lilibet as of right under a measure enacted by King George V in 1917.
This confirms: “The children of all the sovereigns of the Kingdom, the children of the male children and the first grandchild born of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales will enjoy the treatment of Royal Highness and retain for life the title of Prince or Princess before their baptismal name.” and other honorifics.”
