Archie is entitled to the “courtesy title” of Earl of Dumbarton but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose not to give him a courtesy title at that time. Meghan Markle even said that she would have accepted a title for Archie at birth if it had offered him security and “meant he was going to be safe.”

“And it’s not our decision to make. Even though I have a lot of clarity of what comes with the titles, good and bad … that is their birthright to then make a choice about,” she said. Following King Charles’ accession to the throne, Archie got the title of Prince.

On his children, Prince Harry said, “I’ve said before that I’ve wanted a family, not an institution — so of course, I would love nothing more than for our children to have relationships with members of my family, and they do with some, which brings me great joy.”
