Archie and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor’s titles have not yet officially changed.
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex’s children can now use RAS titles if they want their grandfather King Charles to be monarch after Queen Elizabeth’s death, but a royal spokesman admit that they are still waiting for confirmation of how the children will be known.
Since the Queen died last Thursday (09.08.22), the royal family’s website has updated the line of succession, with Harry’s brother Prince William changing his title to Prince of Wales, while that his and his wife Catherine, children of the Princess of Wales Their names have also been changed, with the order listing them as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis “of Wales “, updated from “from Cambridge”.
However, three-year-old Archie and 15-month-old Lilibet, who are sixth and seventh in line to the throne respectively, are still referred to as ‘Master’ and Miss.’
Asked why this is, a spokesman for the king said it was because Charles had announced William and Catherine’s titles as Prince and Princess of Wales during his address to the nation on Friday (09.09.22), but simply expressed his love for Harry and Meghan. , who stepped down from royal duties and moved to the United States two years ago.
The spokesman added: “Although the website was updated for the Welsh, it’s clear that updating love on a website doesn’t quite work, so we haven’t quite done it, but it’s clear that they love it. We will work to update the website as and when we receive information.”
Asked if Archie and Lili will take on the titles of Prince and Princess, he added: “At the moment we are focused on the next 10 days and as we get information we will update this website.”
In his speech, Charles confirmed that his eldest son would take on his former role as Prince of Wales, one of the only titles that was not automatically passed on.
The king said: “As my heir, William now takes on the Scottish titles that have meant so much to me.
“He succeeds me as Duke of Cornwall and takes on the responsibilities of the Duchy of Cornwall, which I have held for more than five decades.
“Today, I am proud to create him ‘Prince of Wales’, ‘Tywysog Cymru’, the country I have been privileged to lead for much of my life and duty.
“With Catherine at his side, our new Prince and Princess of Wales, I know, will continue to inspire and lead our national conversations, helping to bring the marginalized to the center, where vital help can be given.
“I also want to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives abroad.”
