Prince Harry and Meghan ‘could ask for Archie to be given royal title’, expert claims

A royal commentator has claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may ask for a royal title for their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Archie, their oldest child, was entitled to the customary title Earl of Dumbarton when he was born. He is the first-born son to a duke and the heir of his father’s Scottish earldom.

But this was not the case. According to Sunday Times Royal correspondent Roya Nikkah, one reason was the couple “wanted him to be unencumbered by the restrictions that come with titles”.

A source also claimed to The Telegraph that Meghan feared Archie could get bullied at school with the name “Dumbarton”.

But now, royal commentator Neil Sean has claimed that Harry and Meghan might soon ask the Royal Family whether Archie would still be able to take on the title of Earl of Dumbarton.

“According to a very good source out in LA, it appears that Harry and Meghan may be relenting on some things,” he said on his YouTube channel.

“Harry and Meghan have realised that titles do mean something. They help to sell books, and they get you streaming Netflix deals.

“So titles can be very useful, particularly as you’re growing up, so step forward, Baby Archie.”

But, Neil claimed, the royals in Buckingham Palace may not extend the invitation again.

“That doesn’t now necessarily mean that the senior members of the British monarchy will relent and say, ‘okay here’s your title’,” He went on.

“That was offered at that time, and as we know, one of the big rocks between Meghan and Harry and Prince Charles was his idea of streamlining the monarchy.

“If the senior members do decide to relent and bestow that title on Archie, then yes, he will become an Earl.”

Daily Star has approached a representative for the Sussexes for comment.
