With the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, Harry and Meghan’s children will now be referred to as His Royal Highness Prince Archie of Sussex and Her Royal Highness Princess Lilibet of Sussex.
Archie and Lilibet, who are grandchildren of King Charles III, now have the right to be prince and princess, whereas they did not immediately qualify as the great-grandchildren of the Queen.
This change is effective due to rules set out by George V in 1917, grandchildren of the monarch automatically receive royal titles.
However, some reports claim that even if the Sussex children become Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, they still might not get the HRH because they are not technically “working royals” as stated by TATLER.
Reports from CNN point to a statement made by Meghan in an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021. “The title might be denied to Archie due to his mixed-race ancestry.”
