Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘rejected Earl of Dumbarton title for Archie over fears he would be bullied,’ according to The Telegraph.

Apparently, the couple was worried about the fact it had the word ‘dumb’ in it.

A source told the publication: “They didn’t like the idea of Archie being called the Earl of Dumbarton because it began with the word ‘dumb’. They were worried about how that might look.”

Another insider claimed: “It wasn’t just Meghan who pointed out the potential pitfalls, it also bothered Harry.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex claimed their son was refused the title of ‘prince’ during their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

“It was not our decision to make,” said Meghan.

Asked if Archie being a prince was important to her, she replied: “If it meant he was going to be safe, then of course.”

She added: “All the grandeur surrounding this stuff is an attachment I don’t have. I’ve been a waitress, an actress, a princess, a duchess. I’m clear on who I am, independent of that stuff. The most important title I will ever have is ‘Mom’.”

When asked if they thought it had something to do with his race, Meghan replied: “In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, so we [had] the conversation of he won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title.

“And, also, concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Meghan revealed she had experienced suicidal thoughts during her pregnancy.

“I just didn’t see a solution,” she said. “I would sit up at night, and I was just, like, I don’t understand how all of this is being churned out.”

She added: “I realised that it was all happening just because I was breathing. I was really ashamed to say it at the time and ashamed to have to admit it to Harry, especially, because I know how much loss he’s suffered. But I knew that if I didn’t say it, that I would do it. I just didn’t want to be alive anymore. And that was a very clear and real and frightening constant thought.”
