Archie and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor have been given the titles of prince and princess by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Although it is yet unknown if the two young children will be invited to King Charles’ coronation, the Sussexes maintained that it was their birthright.
The king allegedly sent an invitation to Harry and Meghan to attend the coronation on May 6; however, it is not yet known if they will take part in the festivities. The fact that Camilla’s grandchildren will all play important parts on the big day appears to be a given.
One royal analyst contended that Camilla’s choice may infuriate royal supporters. Yet, a different Palace insider even said that Harry and Meghan made the decision to give their children the titles of prince and princess as payback.
Harry and Meghan did not relinquish their royal titles when they left the life of royalty behind. The Duke is still next in line, and his two children, Archie and Lilibet, are currently sixth and seventh, respectively, in the line of succession.
In the line of succession, Mister Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor were identified as the two Sussex children. But, a significant change has since been made, which may provide a hint as to what the future may contain.
Early in March, the Rev. John Taylor, the Archbishop of Los Angeles, baptised Lilibet Diana, who will turn two in June. Princess Lilibet Diana is her new name. In a statement, Harry and Meghan expressed their belief that she deserves the title of princess.
But was the adjustment solely the result of Harry and Meghan making things right in their eyes? A royal specialist says that there may be another rationale for the timing of the announcement, and it has to do with vengeance.
Around 20 to 30 guests attended Lilibet’s private christening at the Sussexes’ house in Montecito, California, according to the Mirror.
When their grandpa became king, the children have been entitled to their titles by birth. According to Buckingham Palace, this situation has been resolved for some time, a couple spokesman stated.
“It certainly seem to me like Harry and Meghan are getting even. Throughout the past week, two significant developments have been witnessed. They characterised Frogmore Cottage as their lifelong home, and it was revealed this week that they are being evicted from that property.
“We later discovered that Camilla’s grandchildren would be appearing at the Coronation. I believe both of these will have displeased Harry and Meghan. They’ll be asking themselves, “What can we do to exact revenge?,” and they’ll decide to give their kids these two titles.
The Sussexes will get a lot of attention if they attend the coronation, even if Harry and Meghan have been a hot topic in the months building up to it. Kinsey Schofield, a royal expert, thinks that may be great for Camilla. The idea that Camilla will use her grandchildren in the coronation may go unnoticed because Harry and Meghan are the centre of attention.
Schofield noted that Camilla’s decision would enrage royal supporters at the same time.
The significance of the Royal Family, she claimed, lies in its traditions. “Traditions and rituals that the rest of the world admires. Many people who feel that those activities undermine the mystique will be disappointed and angered when they go too far from those traditions.
Schofield asserts that even if Camilla’s grandchildren have received more attention lately, royal fans won’t be interested in them.
The royal expert said: “Camilla’s popularity may have risen, but that doesn’t necessarily indicate there will be any interest in her grandchildren.”
