The Royal Family website has been modified to reflect the new titles of Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
The titles of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children have been updated on the Royal Family’s website, where they remain in sixth and seventh place.
Until 9.30 a.m. this morning, the youngsters were referred to on the Buckingham Palace website as plain’master’ and’miss’ Mountbatten-Windsor. They are now known as ‘Prince Archie of Sussex’ and ‘Princess Lilibet of Sussex,’ respectively.
The new development comes after their parents stated in a statement defending their decision to use the titles that it is Archie and Lilibet’s “birthright” to be named prince and princess.
Notwithstanding the fact that the pair only announced the subject yesterday, the Duke and Duchess stated that it had been’settled for some time’ with King Charles.
In a private meeting following the Queen’s burial last year, His Majesty is claimed to have told Prince Harry that his children will be able to be addressed as prince and princess.
A spokesman for Harry and Meghan said: ‘The children’s titles have been a birthright since their grandfather became monarch. This matter has been settled for some time in alignment with Buckingham Palace.’
Lilibet, their 21-month-old daughter, was baptised in California without Charles, Camilla, William, or Kate present, and her regal title of ‘princess’ was used properly for the first time yesterday.
According to sources close to the Sussexes, they were disappointed that Buckingham Palace did not immediately recognize Archie and Lilibet’s titles following the Queen’s death six months ago.
When Charles took the throne in September, the titles of the Prince and Princess of Wales, as well as their three children, were quickly modified.
But Archie and Lili’s were not changed until around 24 hours after the baptism announcement yesterday.
Buckingham Palace sources claimed that they were waiting for Harry and Meghan to make a final decision.
