She could also have refused: Meghan moans about royals, but her children should have titles
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have not been good to the royal family for years. It still seems important to them that their children bear royal titles – a double standard?
It has been known for a few days that Archie and Lilibet, the two children of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, also have royal titles. From now on, the two little ones can call themselves “Prince Archie” and “Princess Lilibet” – they have been entitled to these titles since their grandfather King Charles III. seated on the throne. Even on the palace’s official website, the titles are being adjusted and Meghan and Harry also had a spokesman say that it was Archie’s and Lilibet’s “birthright” to call themselves “prince” and “princess”. But isn’t it a bit contradictory for the Sussexes to insist on royal titles for their offspring? After all, they could have decided against it.
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan could have refused titles for their children
Ever since stepping down from royal duties in early 2020, Harry and Meghan have never missed a chance to shoot against the Windsors. In interviews, in their documentary or in Harry’s memoirs, they repeatedly emphasize how much they suffered under the rules in the royal family, but above all under the system behind it – the royals themselves call it “the company”. But Harry’s relatives have also had to take a lot of harsh criticism. It is therefore all the more surprising that their otherwise clear demarcation from the royal family seems to end with the titles of their children. Because although they consider it a “birthright,” their little ones’ prince and princess titles aren’t mandatory. Harry and Meghan could easily have refused these for their children. So the two would not even be the first royals.
Even Princess Anne, who herself bears the title “Princess Royal” and has been in the service of the crown all her life, decided against giving them royal titles after the birth of her two children Peter and Zara. “I think it was easier for her. I think most people would say that there are downsides to having titles too. So I think that was probably the right decision,” Anne explained of her decision to win the title a few years ago.Vanity Fair“. So if royal titles come with their downsides, and Harry and Meghan obviously want nothing more to do with royalty, why do they insist on naming their children ‘prince’ and ‘princess’?
Harry and Meghan have long been criticized for ducal titles
But it’s not just when it comes to their children that the royal family chapter for Harry and Meghan still doesn’t seem to be over. They continue to use their own titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The two Americans by choice have had to take a lot of criticism for this in recent years. Many Royal fans see it as pure hypocrisy. Harry and Meghan finally publicly oppose the monarchy, but then seem to want to benefit from it on the other hand. In a December 2022 YouGov poll, half of the Brits polled said Harry should lose his titles. Now that the family of four has received even more titles, that probably won’t happen for the time being.
