Queen Elizabeth II's Youngest Grandchildren, Louise & James, Will Not Use Their Royal Titles

Two more of Queen Elizabeth II‘s grandchildren will not be using their HRH titles when they come of age.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, who is married to Prince Edward, revealed that their children, Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn, will most likely not be using their titles and instead go by just Louise Windsor and James Windsor.

“We try to bring them up with the understanding that they are very likely to have to work for a living,” she told The Sunday Times.

Sophie added that she and Edward “made the decision not to use HRH titles” for them when they were born. “They have them and can decide to use them from 18, but it’s highly unlikely.”

Queen Elizabeth‘s two eldest grandchildren, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall, who are Princess Anne‘s children, also do not use royal titles.

Sophie also touched on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry leaving the royal family in her interview.
