Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who christened their daughter Lilibeth earlier this week and described her as a princess for the first time, have been accused of forcing King Charles III to give their children official royal titles.
Last week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex held their daughter Lilibeth’s christening at their home in Montecito, California.
After the move, King Charles officially reinstated Prince Archie Harrison with his royal title. But the couple were accused of forcing King Charles’ hand through their tactics.
Christopher Andersen, author of The King: The Life of Charles III, said the couple forced the monarch to recognize his grandchildren’s royal titles through their statements.
Andersen said the Sussexes “basically accepted the king’s decision for him”. He also said that palace aides will be very upset about the move.
“The largely faceless courtiers who run the monarchy – Diana referred to them as ‘the men in grey’ – were shocked and none too pleased to find themselves in the awkward position of having to update the royal website so quickly. Anderson told Fox News.
He also mocked Prince Harry and Meghan for taking royal titles despite repeatedly attacking the monarchy in media interviews, Spare’s memoir and Netflix series.
Anderson added: “It was more important to Harry and Meghan that Archie and Lilibeth got the full treatment, which seems ridiculous because the Sussexes no longer work for the royal family, live halfway around the world and spend a lot of time lobbying for grenades. palace walls”.
