King Charles III restored some members of the royal family to their official titles after ascending the throne as the new monarch. The big question, however, is whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have a chance to regain their HRH titles?
The controversial royal couple are known to have had their titles stripped after deciding to step down as senior royals in 2020. Now royal expert Katie Nicholl believes Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can get her back, but on one condition.
The Sussexes will no longer be called His and Her Royal Highness after retiring from royal duties. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight (via express) the royal family expert believes the Duke and Duchess of Sussex can regain their titles if they give up commercial work.
While not impossible, it will require a major change on the part of the couple. Not only do they have to give up their commercial work, but they also have to return to the company as full members. However, Nicholl feels there is too much water under the bridge for them to call themselves His and Her Royal Highness again.
First of all, King Charles officially announced the new titles for some members of the royal family after the official mourning period for the late Queen Elizabeth II ended. As such, the royal family’s social media accounts on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook have now changed to honor their new roles and titles.
The royal family accounts now show the image of King Charles and Camilla, the queen consort. Prince William and Kate Middleton are now the Prince and Princess of Wales and are also officially referred to as the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge.
However, King Charles has yet to give some members of the royal family their new titles, such as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children, Archie and Lilibet. They are still called Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor on the Royal Family website.
It is not known if they will be named Prince and Princess or will bear the title HRH as the King’s grandchildren. However, according to a new report, the fifth in line to the throne has stopped deciding on his children’s new titles because he wanted them to do it themselves.
Prince Harry reportedly wanted Archie and Lilibet to choose their own titles when they grew up. In fact, Meghan Markle’s husband raised the matter with King Charles after Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8 at the age of 96.
