Royal fans fume over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle choosing their kids’ titles

Royal fans have reacted with fury over news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may get to choose titles for Archie, three, and Lilibet, one.

Archie and Lilibet's titles have been up in the air following the Queen's death.

They do not have HRH titles unlike their cousins Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven and Prince Louis, four.

However, a rule set by King George in 1917 dictates that all children and grandchildren of the monarch automatically become princes or princesses and use HRH stylings.

Speculation over the Sussex children's titles was ramped up after George, Charlotte and Louis saw theirs updated on the Royal Family website, in line with their father Prince William becoming the Prince of Wales.

Archie and Lilibet remain as "Master" and "Miss".

There have now been claims that King Charles will let Harry and Meghan decide what titles their children take.

Royal expert Roya Nikkah told The Royal Beat: "William and Kate's new titles were instantly updated and it's my understanding that this was discussed with father and son when Harry was over here and [Charles] said, 'what do you want?'

"[Harry] said, 'I'd like my children to be able to decide about their titles when they come of age, it’s not my decision to make for them. And we can only do that if we keep the titles'.

"They have the titles now, but it's up to Charles whether he allows them to keep them, or whether he issues letters patent to remove them, and that is still unresolved."

Reacting to the claims on Twitter, royal watchers weren't best pleased given Harry and Meghan's decision to leave the Royal Family and jet off to America.

One person fumed: "Families trying to destroy the crown should not be given titles."

Another said: "I thought they stepped away from royal life. no titles should be given."

"Their ‘titles’ should be just plain old Archie and Lilibet," another comment read.

A fourth said: "Harry Markle is in no position to demand a damn thing."

A fifth person, speculating as to why there has not been an official announcement, said: "Charles is waiting to see what's in Harry's book before making a decision….100%."
