Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s ‘angry’ kids won’t be HRH

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children will not be given titles as His and Her Royal Highness – leaving the banished couple again “angry” at the royal family over the snub, according to a report.

Harry’s father, the new King Charles III, has agreed to soon bestow the titles of prince and princess on his California-based grandchildren Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, according to The Sun.

But after a week of tense negotiations, he has refused to publicize her as HRH, titles stripped from her podcasting parents after they left the family and the UK in 2020.

“That’s the deal – they can be prince and princess but not HRH because they’re not working royals,” an insider told the British newspaper.

The decision follows “a lot of conversations over the past week” since Harry’s father became king when his 96-year-old mother died last Thursday.

“Since the death of the Queen, they have been adamant,” the insider said of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, saying they “have insisted that Archie and Lilibet be Prince and Princess.”

“But they were angry that Archie and Lilibet can’t take the HRH title,” the source insisted.

The controversy over Archie and Lilibet’s lack of titles was a major target for Markle, who suggested to Oprah Winfrey that it might have been due to race.

She complained that “the idea of ​​the first colored member of this family not receiving the same title as the other grandchildren” and being denied the security he needed worried her.

When asked by Oprah if she thought it was “his race,” Markle seemed to agree.

“Right about the same time — we’re simultaneously having the conversation, ‘He’s not going to get a security, he’s not going to get a title,’ and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born. ‘ she had replied.

However, it soon became clear that a sovereign’s great-grandchildren do not receive such titles under royal protocols.

While that is set to change now that Archie and Lilibet’s grandfather is king, Charles has also widely pushed for a slimmed-down monarchy.

So far, Archie and Lilibet are only referred to as Master and Miss in the official line of succession, where they are 6th and 7th in line to the throne.

You are far from alone: ​​9 others in the top 23 also have only such titles.

Royal expert Phil Dampier told MailOnline that Harry and Meghan “should be happy” with the “classic compromise” offered.

“Although their children are still high in the line of succession, they won’t be working as royals, so it’s absolutely right that they shouldn’t have titles,” he said.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared the first photo of their daughter Lilibet on their celebratory card.

“A lot of people think Harry and Meghan should lose their titles themselves, so I think they should just accept that compromise and be grateful as it could be a lot worse for them and their kids.”

A spokesman for the king said the new monarch was “focused on the mourning period” – which lasts until September 26 for the royal family – and made it “unlikely” that he would announce new titles during that time.

A representative for the Sussexes did not immediately respond to a request.
