Prior to her birth, royal enthusiasts concluded that it would be difficult for her to obtain one, given that her older brother, Archie, is without. Many believed that because the Sussexes' had opted to leave their royal titles behind when they left the United Kingdom, that meant the same was for any of their children.
However, following their emotional tell-all with Oprah, the popular assumption was debunked by the couple, with Meghan claiming that the Royal Family chose not to grant Archie a title.
“They were saying they didn’t want him to be a prince or princess, which would be different from protocol, and that he wasn’t going to receive security,” Meghan said, adding how aghast they felt that “the first member of colour in this family isn’t being titled in the same way as other grandchildren would be”.
But now, since the birth of their baby girl, there could be a change of events. As per Page Six, Meghan and Harry's daughter will in fact become a princess by default only if Prince Charles becomes king, since each one of his grandchildren will become entitled to the Prince or Princess title following a potential coronation.
Naturally, many are sceptical over the likelihood of Meghan and Harry's children ever receiving their titles, given that the Queen continues to sit on the throne and the controversy between the Sussexes and the rest of the family. In the March interview, Meghan stressed how she pushed for her son to have a prince title to ensure his safety.
“If it meant he was going to be safe, of course. All the grandeur around this stuff is an attachment I don't have... the most important title I will ever have is mother.”
She added: "Also it's not their right to take it away. Even with that convention [that allows all grandchildren of the monarch to be prince and princess], they said, 'I want to change the convention for Archie.' Well, why?”
She then concluded that reports claiming that she and Harry didn't want Archie to have a title were far from true, saying: “No, and it's not our decision to make [on whether he'd have a title],” she said.
“Even though I have a lot of clarity of what comes with the titles good and bad... that is their birthright to then make a choice about.”
