Prince Harry and Meghan’s Children Receive Official Prince and Princess Titles

The British royal family’s official website was updated early on March 9, showing that Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s children, Archie and Lilibet, are now officially known as Prince Archie of Sussex and Princess Lilibet of Sussex.

The title upgrade comes after their grandfather, King Charles III, ascended to the throne. The change in titles brings the children in line with a decree issued in 1917, known as Letters Patent.


This gives the children and grandchildren of a reigning monarch the automatic right to the title “His Royal Highness” or “Her Royal Highness” and “prince” or “princess.”

The christening of Princess Lilibet took place at their home in Montecito, California, with only 20-30 guests in attendance, including Lilibet’s godfather Tyler Perry and Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.
