‘They didn’t want a title!’ Meghan Markle and Harry’s Archie claims torn apart by expert


MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry “did not want” a title for Archie Harrison when he was born, royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams has claimed.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Fitzwilliams said: “The issue of the title, I had always understood they didn’t want a title and wished for him to grow up normally.

“What is significant there, under the existing rules he has the title or Earl of Dumbarton if he wished to use it and secondly when Charles ascends the throne, he will get the HRH.

“But it is not necessarily clear if they would want this now.

“There have been reports that the Queen will be reaching out to Harry to find out further issues which will no doubt include discussions on the future.

“Healing is going to be an important part of this and how precisely it turns out and transpires, I don’t know.

“The issue with the title wasn’t linked to anything to do with race.

“It was under the current rules which date back to 1917.

“But if it is wished that they have one that is something that would be done.”

He added that is it “unlikely” Harry and Meghan’s daughter will receive a title.

Mr Fitzwilliams said: “So far security is concerned, only working royals qualify for palace security.

“But it is a tragedy that this has apparently been a matter of so much concern over the way this has been handled.

“Regarding any future title, they have stepped down as working royals.

“It is unlikely, I would have thought they wouldn’t want one.

“We don’t know what future we want for Archie so this will no doubt be one of the many issues the Queen will want to discuss with them.”

Archie was not entitled to be a prince because of rules set down by King George V more than 100 years ago.

At the time of his birth, a royal source said Harry and Meghan had decided he should be a regular Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

Harry has always stressed the importance of wanting to be seen as normal, and he was thought to have wanted to give his baby the opportunities of an ordinary life that he never had, without the burden of being a prince.
