“King Charles could prevent Harry’s son from inheriting the Sussex title”
The Duke of Edinburgh title will revert to the Crown when Prince Edward dies and the same could happen with Prince Harry’s title in Sussex, a report in British media has claimed.
Speaking on his Palace Confidential show, Richard Eden said the monarch could prevent Archie from inheriting the title of Duke of Sussex from Prince Harry.
The British journalist said the King may “have a trick up his sleeve” after Harry made the decision to give his children official titles.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have said their children will use the titles of Prince and Princess following the christening of their daughter Lilibet.
Eden said: “I heard part of the reason was that the King wanted to prevent Archie from inheriting that title of Duke of Sussex. So that might be part of that, so he set that precedent.”
He also said King Charles didn’t want to give his brother the Duke of Edinburgh title as part of his plan to thin the monarchy, he had to announce Edward’s title after Harry and Meghan stated that their children would use the titles of Prince and Princess.
