Will Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's Baby Get the Prince or Princess Title?

Will Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's Baby Get the Prince or Princess Title?

Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex (AKA Meghan Markle) are expecting – but will their baby get the prince/princess title?

Based on the royal lineage, the baby will be seventh in line of succession to the throne. According to tradition, the eldest son of a duke – Prince Harry is the Duke of Sussex – could be the Earl of Dumbarton before inheriting the Duke title. Further sons would be Lord (Name) Windsor, while further daughters would be Lady (Name) Windsor.

But there is another option: Queen Elizabeth could give Meghan and Harry‘s child a similar title to the children of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (AKA Kate Middleton).

If so, a son would be named His Royal Highness Prince (Name) of Sussex, while a daughter would be Her Royal Highness Princess (Name) of Sussex.

Meghan previously revealed that her due date is “around April,” so we’ll find out soon enough!

    Nope, he’s a Duke now and not an immediate heir to the throne. Meghan didn’t marry a Charles ie heir she married an Edward and because of her own status as a commoner and foreign born, her kids wont be royalty but related to royalty. In the event of divorce however, they lose immediate access to them and their holdings.

    But hey they get titles and so long as she stays married, they get the perks.

    Nope. William’s children were given dispensation as children of the immediate heir and them going to be heirs. Harry’s are not. there is a limit to the number of prince/ss titles.

    Oh thats right, I forgot about the kids and they’re the ones who the titles go to now and their children. Well then they’re commoners with relations to royalty and so long as she’s married into it then they get to enjoy the privileges and access. Once she is divorced, if that ever happens, they might be given a choice between the royal family or her.

    Or not. But if they are given a choice, I doubt they will choose her because she wouldn’t have access anymore, no title and no privileges beyond what she can provide. Harry would provide significantly more and actual access and protection.
