The children of Prince Harry (37) and Meghan Markle (40) are a frequent topic in the media, especially when it comes to their royal titles. Namely, since the birth of Archie, there has been debate about whether he will receive the royal title, and the same topic is now being raised for Lilibet, who was born this year.
After Meghan gave birth to Archie in May 2018, everyone was convinced he would get the title according to the custom of the royal family, but that didn’t happen. At that time, there was a discussion in the media about possible reasons, and one of the theories was that the court decided so because of his skin color.

"From the palace, they say it has nothing to do with skin color. According to the royal protocol introduced by King George V, only those who are in the direct line of inheritance can receive the title of prince or princess," said a source close to the royal family at the time.
