MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s baby will not be expected to carry out official royal duties unlike Kate Middleton and Prince William’s children, a royal expert has revealed.
Meghan Markle is currently pregnant with Prince Harry’s first baby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the news in October 2018, revealing their baby was expected in Spring 2019. In the statement released by Kensington Palace, the couple said they were “delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public”.
While a major part of the royal family, Harry and Meghan’s baby will have a very different role than cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
In documentary “When Kate Met Met William: A Tale Of Two Lives”, ABC Royals Contributor Imogen Lloyd Webber explained: “At the moment, Harry and Meghan are saying that they don’t want a title for their baby.”
Ms Webber continued: “As a result, this baby is unlikely to ever have his or her royal highness prince or princess title and they will be expected to work for a living.”
ABC Royals Contributor Victoria Murphy went on to add: “There’s no chance that this baby will ever be King or Queen, this baby has so much more freedom than William and Kate’s children do.”

Ms Murphy added how Meghan and Harry’s child “will not be expected when they get older to carry out full-time royal duties”.
She explained how this child can “really carve their own path”, and this is something the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be very “excited” about.
George, Charlotte and Louis’ lives will be considerably different, as they are all direct heirs to the throne.
The three royal children are third, fourth and fifth to the throne, while Prince Harry is sixth.
