NS Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wanted to have the option of giving their son Archie, who is now two years old, a royal title.
When the boy was born, in 2019, it was mentioned in the international press that the couple did not want to give their son a surname and that he would be known only as Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
This is in contrast to the cousins, sons of Prince William and Kate Middleton, who in addition to being treated like princes, are also presented as SAR – His Royal Highness.
In new chapters of Harry and Meghan’s unauthorized autobiography – ‘Finding Freedom’ – it’s reported that palace collaborators were instructed by saying the couple didn’t want the title, when in reality they did.
Their idea was to provide an extra level of security for Archie, which usually happens to someone who is baptized in this way.
“The preferential treatment the couple felt their son received was a huge blow to Harry and Meghan,” the book says.
However, it’s important to note that because there was a law in the real code, even if they wanted to, Harry and Meghan couldn’t follow through with their wish.
