William's children are fortunate ... and the children of Harry and Edward are deported
Only 11 members of the British royal family hold royal titles
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's recent interview with Oprah Winfrey caused widespread controversy across the UK, as Prince Harry and his wife, Megan Markle, revealed shocking facts while talking about their lives as members of the British royal family.
In the interview, Megan revealed that she was told that her son, Archie, would not receive an official title as "Prince" or receive royal protection.
The following are the members of the royal family who hold the title Prince or Princess:
• The Queen's four children: Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.
• The Queen's grandchildren: Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.
• Children of Prince William (the future king): Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
As for the Queen's great-grandchildren, including Archie, the son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle;
August Brooksbank, son of Princess Eugenie;
And the children of Zara Tindall, all of them do not have the title "prince" or "princess."
Why doesn't Archie hold the royal title?
According to current royal guidelines, the Queen's great-grandchildren are not princes or princesses.
The tradition began during the reign of George V, when he issued the decree in 1917. Only Prince George, as the Queen's great-grandson, with a direct line of succession to the throne, was originally entitled to be a prince.
The Queen intervened before the birth of Prince George and issued a royal decree stating that all the children of Cambridge had the title Prince, and George and his sister Charlotte now bear the titles Prince and Princess.
As for Archie - Prince Harry's son, who turns two in May, he has been awarded the honorary title "Earl of Dumbarton".
However, the couple announced after his birth that he was not given the title of honor and that he would be known as Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
Why do Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie have official titles?
Prince Andrew's daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, are the Queen's granddaughters, from her second and favorite son, and have been granted the title of Princess from birth.
Why do not the children of Prince Edward hold official titles?
At Prince Edward's wedding with Sophie Reese Jones, a statement was issued announcing that the Queen had decided, with the consent of both Edward and Sophie, that their children would not be granted royal titles, but instead would be given the title of "Earl" (a title held by the gentry in the past) .
Will Archie get a royal title in the future?
Prince Harry and Meghan's son will likely obtain a royal title later in life, when his grandfather, Prince Charles, becomes king.
In the event of Queen Elizabeth's death, he would be automatically granted the title "Prince" as the son of the King.
However, Meghan and Harry, too, could choose not to use the title, which would be awarded to Archie, after Charles becomes king.
