The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry – the second son of King Charles III and the late Queen of Hearts, Princess Diana – and Meghan Markle have two types, namely Archie Harrison and Lilibet “Lili” Diana.
The couple have retired from the royal limelight and settled in Santa Barbara, California. Although they no longer participate in their former royal duties, they still retain their titles.
Markle, an actress best known for her seven-season television series – Suits, began dating Prince Harry, whose older brother is currently the heir to the British throne, in 2016 after being introduced to each other 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.
Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor: Prince Harry and Meghan’s First Child
Archie Harrison was born on May 6, 2019 in London, England. Months after Archie was born, the royal couple withdrew from their royal duties and left the UK. It was then that the feud began between Harry and Megan and the rest of the royal family, particularly between the brothers William and Harry.
In an tell-all interview, Harry and Meghan told Oprah the details regarding the royal family in March 2021, including alleged concerns about Archie’s skin color, no royal patronage, pressures to be 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
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.
