King Charles III officially recognized the grandchildren, Archie It is Lilibetlike prince and princess. The royal titles of the sons of harry It is meghan have already been updated on the official website of Buckingham Palace and the little princes now occupy the 6th and 7th position in the line of succession to the British throne.
This new royal status represents something important for Meghan and Harry, as it allows their children to have access to a higher level of protection and security, something that the Duchess of Sussex questioned during the controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey, in March 2021.
The explanation is in a Royal Charter promulgated by King George V in 1917, which stipulates that this title cannot automatically be attributed to great-grandchildren, but only to the children and grandchildren of the British sovereign. Exception made to the monarch’s first great-grandson, who is considered prince, since he is the first son of his successor. Thus, during the reign of Elizabeth IIjust George, eldest son of William, grandson of the queen, was entitled to that status. However, Isabel II issued a document that promulgated that Charlotte It is Louis, brothers of George, were given the same title. The same did not happen with Archie or Lilibet.
With the accession of Charles III to the British throne in September, after the death of Queen Isabell II, Harry and Meghan’s children became grandchildren of the reigning monarch and became princes, as royal protocol defines it. .
A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan said: “Children’s titles have been their birthright since their grandfather became monarch. This matter was resolved some time ago in line with Buckingham Palace.’, he clarified.
Following this, Meghan and Prince Harry invited members of the royal family to the christening of the youngest daughter, who formally used the status of princess for the first time, and which took place on March 3, in California.
