OMG! There Is Still A Chance Archie & Lilibet Could Become PRINCE AND PRINCESS!

Share this post

Someone grab Archie and Lilibet their crowns because they could someday inherit the title of prince and princess!How one may ask? Well, the children are legally allowed their royal labels once grandfather Prince Charles takes on the role of the monarch after Queen Elizabeth II‘s reign. Based on current guidelines, the great-grandchildren of the crown arent considered princes or princesses — except for the kiddos of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales. This basically is why we call Prince William and Kate Middletons little ones Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.Related: AWW! Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Son Archie ‘Is Very Happy To Have A Little Sister’! It’s all just so complicated, right?! The rule was established by King George V, who issued the Letters Patent in 1917 that read:The grandchildren of the sons of any such Sovereign in the direct male line shall have and enjoy in all occasions the style and title enjoyed by the children of dukes of these our realms.So when Charles becomes king, Archie and Lili are legally entitled to be called prince and princess! However, this still all depends on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who could decide to forgo the luxury.Its crazy to think thats even an option for the parents since they made such a fuss over their 2-year-olds title in their explosive tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year. When Archie was not given a formal title, many folks assumed the couple wanted him to have a normal life — but that turned out not to be the case. Meghan admitted to Oprah:They didnt want him to be a prince or a princess, which would be different from protocol. It was really hard This went on for the last few months of our pregnancy where Im going, Hold on a second. How does that work? If hes not gonna be a prince, he needs to be safe.The Duke and Duchess of Sussex then insisted the lack of title had been a racist decision made by the institution, saying:All around this same time, we had in tandem the conversation of he wont be given security, hes not going to be given a title, and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when hes born.However, a palace spokesperson previously told Us Weekly how there was a protocol, explaining:The palace says its nothing to do with race. Under royal protocol established by King George V, only those in the direct line of succession to the throne get the titles prince or princess Archie wouldve been given a title when Prince Charles became king.As we said, theres still a chance for the tiny tots in the future! And when the shift happens, the entire line of succession will also change again. Following Lilibets birth, some royals actually got bumped down the list — including Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, and Princess Anne. Take a look at the current line of succession now that the newborn is here :Prince CharlesPrince WilliamPrince GeorgePrincess CharlottePrince LouisPrince HarryArchie Mountbatten-WindsorLilibet Diana Mountbatten-WindsorPrince AndrewPrincess BeatricePrincess EugenieAugust BrooksbankPrince EdwardJames, Viscount SevernLady Louise Mountbatten-WindsorPrincess AnnePeter PhillipsOf course, there are others in line, but we doubt theyll ever come close to seeing the throne. It must suck to be so close yet so far, huh! AnywaysReactions to Archie and Lilibet possibly being a prince and princess in the future? Do you think Meghan and Harry will have them ditch the titles?
