The exclusive interview with talk legend Oprah Winfrey (67), Prince Harry (36) and Duchess Meghan (39) caused a worldwide sensation. The couple did not hold back their truth and revealed details about how they fared as members of the British royal family. Meghan also explained why their son Archie (1) did not become a prince.

Duchess Meghan explains why Archie didn't become a prince

Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor, the son of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, does not have a title of nobility. To the public, it has long been communicated that Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan had voluntarily renounced the royal title for their son.

Meghan contradicted this claim, and also spoke about the quarrel rumors between her and Duchess Kate in the interview. She said that decision was determined by the royal family, but that having a title "meant he was going to be safe," but noted that it was "not our decision to make."

In the course of this, racist statements would also have been made, as Meghan continued. "In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, so we [had] the conversation of he won’t be given security, he's not going to be given a title, and also, concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born," she reported.


However, there is still the possibility that Archie could get the Prince title at a later date.

By the way, Harry and Meghan are currently not the only ones in the British royal family whose children will not hold titles. The children of Princess Eugenie (30) and her husband Jack Brooksbank (34) will not inherit any royal titles either.
