- Prince Harry's children
- Archie and Lilibet's royal titles
- King Charles's reason for the reluctance is below
In the course of the death of Queen Elizabeth II, some things are changing in the British royal family, such as the titles of the royals. Not just with the children of Prince Harry (38) and his wife, Duchess Meghan (41).
The titles of Archie and Lilibet?
The titles of the little royals Archie (3) and Lilibet (1) were granted by King Charles III (73) and have not yet been reassigned. On the official website of the British Royals, they are still known as Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor, although the death of the Queen automatically entitled them to the titles of Prince and Princess.
Likewise, Archie and Lilibet may not be given the salutation "His/Her Royal Highness" because Prince Harry has left the royal family as a working member. Is this matter behind Duchess Meghan's requests for a private audience with the King? Because King Charles can actually deny the young royals this status.
That is why King Charles acted
According to the Daily Mail, the reason for the King's behavior is Charles' lack of trust in his son and his wife.
Reportedly, Charles is "willing to give those titles, but it comes with a caveat and that caveat is trust." Another reason for the King's hesitation could be that Prince Harry is about to release his memoir, in which the British royal family will play a major role.
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will be keen for the King to bestow His/Her Royal Highness status on their children. These titles would give Archie and Lilibet a higher level of security, which the royal has been fighting for since leaving the royal house.
Perhaps the King will deal with it again after the mourning phase and give his grandchildren the coveted titles after all.
