The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry – the second son of King Charles III and late Queen of People’s Hearts Princess Diana, and Meghan Markle have two kids, namely, Archie Harrison and Lilibet “Lili” Diana.
The pair backed away from the royal limelight and took residence in Santa Barbara, California. While they no longer participate in their former royal duties, they still hold their titles.
Markle, an actress famously known for her television series that spanned seven seasons – Suits, began going out with Prince Harry, whose older brother is currently heir apparent to the British throne, in 2016 after being hooked up by a mutual friend.
The couple revealed their engagement in November 2017 and tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in May 2018. Hence, the late Queen Elizabeth II gave them the titles Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Prince Harry and Meghan’s First Born: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor
Archie Harrison was birthed on May 6, 2019, in London, England. Months after Archie’s birth, the royal pair backed away from their royal duties and moved away from the United Kingdom. This was when the beef began between Harry and Megan and the rest of the royal family, particularly between brothers William and Harry.
In a tell-all interview, Harry and Meghan told Oprah about the details regarding the royal family in March 2021, which include the alleged concern about Archie’s skin tone, no royal protection, the pressures on being royal, and being trapped.
“I was trapped, but I didn’t know I was trapped,” Harry told Oprah. “Trapped within the system like the rest of the family. My father and my brother are trapped. They don’t get to leave, and I have huge compassion for that.”
Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor
Harry and Meghan bore their second child, Lilibet Diana, on June 4, 2021, in Santa Barbara, California. She was named in honor of Queen Elizabeth II, whose nickname with her close family was Lilibet, and Harry’s mother, Princess Diana.
Archie and Lilibet were not handed royal titles at birth. However, following Queen Elizabeth II’s death, the line of succession changed, and the kids could now inherently be given titles unless King Charles III shifted the rule.
But it is not known whether Harry and Meghan will want to use the titles or not.
