IS THE VOLTAGE TRANSFERRED TO OTHER POINTS?
However, there has been such a development regarding the family that it may disappoint some people, if not everyone. The titles of “prince” and “princess” were awaited for their children, Archie and Lilibet, as they were the grandchildren of the reigning monarch. Prince Harry with his wife Meghan Markle‘s “degraded.” Let’s take a look at this. This development led to allegations that the tension between the family and Harry and Meghan was taken to another dimension.
THEY WERE ONE RANK ABOVE ANDREW
Harry and Meghan have been demoted to the back row on the official website promoting members of the royal family. The site shows Prince Harry and Meghan Markle retaining the titles Duke and Duchess of Sussex, which were given as gifts by the Queen after their marriage. But the couple were only one row above Prince Andrew, whose name was implicated in the sexual harassment scandal on the site.
IN THE PAST, THEY LOOKED IMMEDIATELY BEHIND WILLIAM AND KATE: Before announcing their decision to leave the family in 2020, Harry and Meghan were on the same website just behind Prince William and Kate Middleton. That’s why this new status was interpreted as “downgraded” by royal experts.
‘SKIN COLOR’ WAS AN EVENT
Harry and Meghan’s children, Archie and Lilibet, could not be called “prince” or “princess” when they were born. Meghan Markle attributed this to her half-African American roots. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey with her husband, she said, “There was a senior family member who was curious about my baby’s skin color and commented on it. That’s why my son wasn’t given the title of “prince.” He placed it at the center of “racism” allegations. Although Markle implies that this is discrimination and racism, it is actually another reason why Archie’s “prince” sister, Lilibet, did not receive the title of “princess”.
THE RULE OF KING GEORGE FIFTH
This is due to a royal charter issued by King George V in 1917. According to the decision of George V, certain rules were introduced for family members to receive titles. This includes which members will bear the title of HRH (His Royal Highness – Her Royal Highness – i.e. “Your Highness”, “Your Highness”).
THE STATUS OF THE CHILDREN OF GRAND DETERMINED WITH THIS CERTIFICATE
According to this charter of George the Fifth, the monarch’s grandchildren cannot receive the title of “prince” or “princess”, except for the eldest child of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales, who was the “heir apparent” at that time. This is why Prince William’s eldest son, George, is a “prince” by birth.
THE QUEEN HAS CHANGED
In fact, according to this rule set by George Fifth, his brothers were not supposed to have the title of “prince” or “princess”. However, the Queen granted all of William’s children the right to bear these titles with the royal charter she published in 2012. These children also had the right to be addressed as “HRH” with Elizabeth’s acquittal.
CHARLES WILL MAKE THE DECISION
According to George V’s 1917 charter, Harry and Meghan’s son Archie actually has the right to be “prince”. Likewise, their daughter Lilibet can also become a “princess”. But this requires certain rules to be followed. For this title, Charles had to be enthroned as king. Now, it is questionable whether King Charles III, who took the throne after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, will make the decision to carry titles for these two grandchildren. According to the George Fifth charter, when their grandfather ascends to the throne, these two children must receive titles. However, it seems that Charles will make the final decision on this matter, as Harry and Meghan have left their working royal family membership.
THEY ARE PRINCESS BY BORN, AS THE GRAND GRAND PRINCESS
Meanwhile, Prince Andrew’s daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, who were born from his marriage to Sarah Ferguson, carry the title of princess by birth. This is because they are the grandchildren of the ruler. The children of both princesses do not carry any titles originating from the British royal family.
BABY’S TITLE FROM FATHER
But Sienna Elizabeth, the daughter of Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, holds a title inherited from her father. The baby has the title “Countess”, albeit only symbolically, because of her father. Because her father, Princess Beatrice’s husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, is an Italian count and the last representative of his family. Mapelli Mozzi inherited the title of “count” from his father.
THE LITTLE GRANDEST GROUPS HAVE NO TITLE
The Queen’s youngest son, Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys Jones’ children, Louise and James, are not princes or princesses. Louise is known as “Lady”, Viscount James de Severn. Both children may use the title of prince or princess of Great Britain with rights as the granddaughter of the monarch, the Queen, and the corresponding form of address “Your Highness”. However, at the time of the marriage, it was decided that Prince Edward’s children would not bear the title of “His Highness”. They bear the title of courtesy rather from the title of Earl of Wessex. For this reason, their daughters are called Lady Louise Windsor, and their son is Viscount Severn.
By the way, one more reminder. The Queen’s only daughter, Princess Anne, holds high titles in the family as the child of the monarch. But her two children, Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips, do not have any titles.
