THE Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s children have become Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, following the death of The Queen.
Her Majesty died peacefully at Balmoral on Thursday – marking an end to her historic 70 year reign and sparking an outpouring of grief around the world.
Her death, a la edad de 96, means her great-grandchildren take on titles because of the accession of their grandfather King Charles to the throne.
Under protocols established by King George V, The Queen’s grandfather, the children and grandchildren of a sovereign have the automatic right to the title HRH and prince or princess.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s kids, Archie, Tres, and Lilibet, una, will now officially be a Prince and Princess, and HRH’s, under the rules, established in 1917.
Meghan had previously spoken of her shock at being told Archie would not get police protection because he did not have a title during her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey,
She suggested the decision was taken because of his mixed race, which was not the case.
At the time Archie was born, he was the great-grandchild of a sovereign, not a grandchild.
The reason Prince George, nueve, was entitled to be a Prince is because it is protected in George V’s protocol.
This is because he was a great-grandson of the monarch down the direct line of succession to the throne, being the eldest son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales.

Prince George’s sister Princess Charlotte, 7, and Louis, 4, are entitled to their titles because of a patent signed by The Queen on December 31, 2012.
