Will Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's children Archie and Lilibet not only be made Prince and Princess, but also receive HRH titles? King Charles' decision is a long time coming, and for a very specific reason.

Bad news for Prince Harry, 38, and Duchess Meghan, 40: After the death of Queen Elizabeth, ✝96, and the proclamation of King Charles, 73, his grandchildren Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, 3, and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor, 1, actually the right to call themselves “royal highnesses” – a change that Harry and Meghan in particular should attach great importance to – but in the end the new king decides and he seems to have other plans.

King Charles decides on the award of the title

Still, King Charles is said to have agreed to Archie and Lilibet, who live with their parents in the US, receiving royal titles and being made prince and princess by him, but something crucial may be missing: the title of HRH [His/Her Royal Highness ; in German: His/Her Royal Highness].

Although Harry and Meghan have not been senior members of the royal family for two years now and are not considered working royals, they are said to be very keen on HRH status for their children. The disgraced couple is said to be very upset that Harry's father could not grant him and his wife this wish. Finally, Prince Andrew's daughters, 62, also have HRH status, although they are not considered working royals and have other jobs.

King Charles, who actually wants a slimmed-down monarchy, has not yet made a decision or has not yet communicated his decision. A few days ago it was said that an announcement would probably not be made, at least during the mourning period, which lasts until September 26th. But now it looks like Harry and Meghan will have to wait a lot longer for the decision.

Will Archie and Lilibet be denied HRH status?

According to royal expert and author Katie Nicholl, the king is still awaiting the publication of Harry's memoir. The book, which could contain scandalous revelations about the royal family, was actually supposed to be released this year. According to insiders, it is also possible that it will be postponed to 2023 to add additional chapters about the Queen's death.

Katie Nicholl writes in her new book The New Royals: Queen Elizabeth's Legacy and the Future of the Crown: "Now that Charles is king, Harry and Meghan's children automatically become Prince Archie of Sussex and Princess Lilibet of Sussex ; however, on the Royal Family website they are still listed as Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor Would Charles go so far as to ban Archie and Lilibet from becoming a prince and princess now that the According to a source close to the royal, it "depends a lot on what happens in the coming months, particularly with Harry's book and her TV show."

Why are the HRH titles so important to Harry and Meghan? Probably because the issue of safety for their children then takes on a different meaning. As "Royal Highnesses", Archie and Lilibet would probably receive more protections in Great Britain, for which Harry has been fighting for months.
