For the unveiling of Archie & Lilibet’s title, King Charles omitted a crucial phrase

Archie and Lilibet, the children of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, have been given the royal titles of prince and princess. Their parents insisted that it was their “birthright,” and Buckingham Palace swiftly changed the status on its website to reflect the change.

Yet King Charles also declared that another member of the Royal Family was receiving a new title at the same time as Archie and Lilibet were awarded their new titles.

Prince Edward is now the Duke of Edinburgh, albeit one royal expert expressed worry about the manner in which the announcement was made.

The announcement itself was telling of how the Palace genuinely feels about Archie and Lilibet, as well as their parents, Harry and Meghan, according to Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine. There is one significant difference in particular

Harry and Meghan did not relinquish their royal titles when they left the life of royalty behind. After the prince, who is still a permanent member of the line of succession, his two children Archie and Lilibet are currently sixth and seventh in line, respectively.


The early succession chart identified Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor 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.

Lilibet Diana, who will turn two in June, was christened a few weeks ago by the Rev. John Taylor, Archbishop of Los Angeles. Since Harry and Meghan feel the royal title is her “birthright,” she is now known as Princess Lilibet Diana.

20 to 30 guests attended the private christening at the Sussexes’ home in Montecito, California, according to a report in 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.

Archie and Lilibet are now identified on the Royal Family website as Prince Archie of Sussex and Princess Lilibet of Sussex. Their royal titles are being utilised for the first time in public.

Prince Philip’s title was transferred to Charles after his death in 2021. But when he became king, it immediately changed back to support the Crown. The Duke of Edinburgh title was then up for grabs, and Charles chose Prince Edward as his nominee.

As previously mentioned, Charles also bestowed new royal titles on his grandkids Archie and Lilibet, however it’s possible that the monarch has different feelings about them. At least that is what Ingrid Seward, a royal scholar and the editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, discovered when researching how King Charles announced the new royal titles.

The Palace decided to quietly update Archie and Lilibet’s titles on the Royal Family website rather than make a long announcement disclosing them. The contrast between the announcements was “stark,” according to Seward, and Prince Edward’s announcement benefited from a whole different amount of exposure.

“The contrast between the manner King Charles revealed his brother’s ennoblement and the way Harry and Meghan presented the news of their children’s royal titles was startling,” Seward told the Mirror.

The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex and Forfar, was given the Dukedom of Edinburgh by King Charles, who officially announced his decision from Buckingham Palace, the royal expert continued.

It felt like the statement was being pinned to the railings of Buckingham Castle in a golden frame since it was so enormous in scale.

“On the other side, Harry and Meghan wanted their spokesperson to declare that their 21-month-old daughter Lilibet would be baptised using the royal style princess,” Seward said in his conclusion. Archie would then adopt the prince-like style.
