Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children, Archie and Lilibet, ‘will not get HRH titles‘, a source has claimed.
The Sun claims King Charles III has agreed to issue the patent letters for his two grandchildren to receive the titles of prince and princess. However, they won’t be given HRH status.
A source told the newspaper that this is because they are ‘not working royals‘.

The source claimed: “They have been left furious that Archie and Lilibet cannot take the title HRH.
“That is the agreement — they can be prince and princess but not HRH because they are not working royals.”
The outlet reports that the King has declined to comment on the matter.

Two and a half years ago, when Prince Harry and Markle moved out to the US, they agreed not to use their His and Her Royal Highness titles any longer.
It’s been claimed that the couple pointed out how Prince Andrew’s daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, have HRH titles although they are not working royals.
Discussing the matter with the MailOnline, royal expert Phil Dampie said: “Harry and Meghan should be pleased as using Prince or Princess sounds good in the States.
“But even though their children are still high up in the line of succession they will not be working royals so it’s quite right they shouldn’t have titles.”
He went on to say that the Duke and Duchess should ‘accept this compromise as it could be a lot worse’.
Last year, when the royal couple were interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, Markle claimed: “They were saying they didn’t want him [Archie] to be a prince or princess, which would be different from protocol, and that he wasn’t going to receive security.

“This went on for the last few months of our pregnancy where I was going, hold on for a second.”
She continued: “They said [he’s not going to get security] because he’s not going to be a prince.
“OK, well, he needs to be safe, so we’re not saying don’t make him a prince or princess, but if you’re saying the title is what’s going to affect that protection, we haven’t created this monster machine around us in terms of clickbait and tabloid fodder; you’ve allowed that to happen, which means our son needs to be safe.”
