The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry – the second child of King Charles III and the late Princess Diana, and Meghan Markle have two children, to be specific, Archie Harrison and Lilibet “Lili” Diana.
The couple stepped away from the royal limelight and moved to Santa Barbara, California. Although they no longer participate in their former royal duties, they still retain that title.
Markle, the actress best known for her seven-season TV series Suits, began dating Prince Harry, whose brother is now the heir to the British throne, in 2016 after being matched by a mutual friend.
The couple revealed their engagement in November 2017 and got married in May 2018 in St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. That is why the late Queen Elizabeth II gave them the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Prince Harry and Meghan’s First Child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor
Archie Harrison was born on May 6, 2019 in London, England. A few months after Archie’s birth, the royal couple retired from royal duties and left the UK. This is when the feud between Harry and Megan and other members of the royal family began, most notably William and Harry.
In a lengthy interview, Harry and Meghan opened up to Oprah about details about the royal family in March 2021, which include the alleged concern about Archie’s skin tone, no royal protection, the pressures on being royal, and being trapped.
“I was trapped, but I didn’t know I was trapped,” Harry told Oprah. “Trapped within the system like the rest of the family. My father and my brother are trapped. They don’t get to leave, and I have huge compassion for that.”
Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor: The Second Born
Harry and Meghan bore their second child, Lilibet Diana, on June 4, 2021, in Santa Barbara, California. She was named in honor of Queen Elizabeth II, whose nickname with her close family was Lilibet, and Harry’s mother, Princess Diana.
Archie and Lilibet were not handed royal titles at birth. However, following Queen Elizabeth II’s death, the line of succession changed, and the kids could now inherently be given titles unless King Charles III shifted the rule.
But it is not known whether Harry and Meghan will want to use the titles or not.
