A royal expert has claimed that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son will be given an official title – but not until Prince Charles becomes king.
For now, their son will be known as Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, however, royal editor Rob Jobson has insisted that he will become ‘Prince Archie’ someday.
Speaking on Sunrise, Rob said: “Everyone is going on about the fact that he is just going to be ‘Master Archie’ – I think that is just for now.”
“The Queen is 93-years-old, and they didn’t want to make a big fuss for the rules to be changed. There is a thing called the George V Convention, which was to stop so many ‘prince’ names.”
“When Prince Charles becomes king, I have been told they are very happy for him to become ‘Prince Archie’, that is with their blessing,” he explained.
“It’s not a speculative thing, that’s exactly what they will do. He will become Prince Archie when his grandad becomes king.”
In other words, Harry and Meghan’s son will have the right to be called ‘His Royal Highness’ once Prince Charles becomes king, because he would be the grandson of a reigning monarch through the male line.
