Archie and Lilibet wont receive royal titles as they arent relevant – expert

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children Archie Harrison and Lilibet 'Lili' Diana may never receive royal titles, according to one expert.

Jonathan Sacerdoti has said it wouldn’t be “particularly relevant” for the young Royals to be referred to as HRH now that King Charles III sits on the throne.

Speaking to the Express, Jonathan said: "I wouldn't expect them to be given the HRH styling. Not because of any falling out, but because I don't think it would be particularly relevant to their lives.

"I think that Meghan and Harry made it quite clear even before they left as working Royal Family members that they wanted their children, or at that time their child Archie, to have a sort of protection from the less attractive side of being in the Royal Family."

He added that it would be “strange” if Harry and Meghan pressed for their children to have their HRH titles after their parents had stepped away from their titles.

He said: "And I think, given that was their aim and one of the biggest factors in the decisions they have made since then, it would actually seem strange for them to want to try to style their children that way."

He cited Princess Anne as a "good example" of a royal who did not want her children to be "encumbered by titles" when they were born.

The Queen's only daughter decided that her children, Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips, would not be styled HRH when they were born, saying it was "probably easier for them".

"I think that shows that there are two sides to having these honours, stylings and privileges," said Jonathan. "And I think it's natural for the parents to wants perhaps to protect their children if it's not necessary."
