Harry and Meghan wanted Palace to announce royal titles for their children
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wanted the Palace to announce the new titles of Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, a royal expert has claimed.
Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty magazine, said it didn’t happen because “wanting the benefits without the accountability never works”.
She said the couple had to announce the changes to their children’s titles themselves so “they can’t complain if Buckingham Palace go ahead and do it”.
The titles of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s children were announced after Lilibet’s christening.
Speaking to The Mirror, Ms Seward said: ‘Archie and Lilibet have been allowed to use this style since the death of their great-grandmother, but their parents have chosen not to until now.
She added: “How interesting that they waited six months to do this. They were hoping the Palace would take the plunge and announce it before them. Bad luck.”
The expert said: “Buckingham Palace left their website intact and allowed the Sussexes to make the move themselves so they couldn’t complain.”
