According to Andrew Morton, English journalist and biographer, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have refused a title for Archie. The reason ? The fear of mockery.

Archie Mountbatten-Windsor should have inherited an honorary title. But now, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle preferred to refuse according to the British biographer, Andrew Morton, who told US Weekly magazine. This title is that of Earl of Dumbarton, currently held by Harry as specified Paris Match. The princely couple would thus have been afraid of the meaning of the word “dumb”, present in Dumbarton, which translates as “moron” in French.

According to the biographer, author of several books on Diana, this initiative proves “how sensitive they are to the image.”

No prince title for Archie

Also according to Andrew Morton, little Archie did not receive a princely title because he is not in the direct line for the throne of England. “There was no way he would have a prince title, and that they both knew perfectly well. We have to wait until Prince Charles takes power because these titles are only given to the children or grandchildren of the reigning sovereign and Archie is a great-grandson of the reigning sovereign. ” Archie and Lilibet will be able to receive this distinction the day Charles takes the throne. For their part, the children of Prince William and Kate Middleton are already princes and princess because “according to the protocol established by King George V, only the direct heirs to the throne can hope for this title”, as explained by a door word of Buckingham Palace to US Weekly.
