Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have declared it is Archie and Lilibet’s “birthright” to use their Prince and Princess titles.
In a new statement defending the decision to use the children’s royal titles, the Sussexes said the matter had been “settled for some time” with King Charles.
Under royal protocol, the grandchildren of the monarch are traditionally given the title of prince of princess.
However, it was unclear whether Harry and Meghan wished for their children to have royal titles following their decision to cease being working royals.
That all changed when 21-month-old Lilibet was referred to as a princess in a statement announcing she had been christened.
A spokesman for the Sussexes said: “The children’s titles have been a birthright since their grandfather became Monarch.
“This matter has been settled for some time in alignment with Buckingham Palace.”
More to come.
