SAR treatment will have to wait for Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. The newborn daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not instantly become a princess, but he will have the right to be when Queen Elizabeth II, his great-grandmother, dies. Like her older brother, two-year-old Archie, she also doesn’t have any official titles. Both, however, will be entitled to the treatment of His Royal Highness when Prince Charles inherits the crown and scepter from his 95-year-old mother. When that happens the children of the Dukes of Sussex will have risen in the line of succession to become “children of a son of a monarch”, explains the ‘Daily Mail’.

This complex law of dynastic succession, dating back to George’s time, has caused blisters before. Especially as a result of the explosive interview of the Sussexes, already in America, with the presenter Oprah Winfrey, in which, among other bombings, the former actress dropped that neither she nor Prince Henry denied Archie the possibility of receiving treatment from prince, but it was Buckingham. “Although I am very clear about all the bad and all the good that come with the titles … it is his birthright, on which he can make a decision later,” said the Duchess on the special program, pointing directly at the family British royal.

George V inheritance

In the patent letters signed by the King George V, the queen’s grandfather, only royal descendants who are in the direct line of succession can become a prince or princess and receive titles from Her Royal Highness (SAR). The text reads exactly like this: “The grandchildren of the children of any sovereign in the male direct line (except only the eldest living son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales) will at all times have and enjoy the style and title enjoyed by the sons of the dukes of these our kingdoms. ” Therefore, right now Archi and Lili are children of dukes.

According to these royal rules, only Prince William and the eldest son of the Duchess of Cambridge, prince george, as the great-grandson of the monarch in the direct line of succession to the throne, originally he has the right to be “prince.” However, there is an exception to this rule. Isabel II herself made a modification before the birth of Jorge, in 2013, whereby all the siblings she had, as children of the future monarch Guillermo, had “appropriate titles.

Following George V’s rules, Archie – and also his little sister – will have the right to be treated as a HRH or a prince when his grandfather Charles, the Prince of Wales, takes the throne.

However, in the controversial interview she assured that neither she nor Enrique made the decision that their son should not be a prince, and described their “pain” because the palace officials told them that Archie “was not going to receive security or title.”

Eighth in the line of succession

Lilibet occupies the eighth place in the line of succession to the British throne, after Archie, and in both cases their positions are not threatened by the resignation of their parents as members of British royalty.

The new baby Windsor is also a first cousin to Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and Charles’s fifth grandson, but he will grow up on the other side of the Atlantic, a far cry from the royal family.

Harry and Meghan confirmed during their interview with Oprah Winfrey, the past, that they were expecting a girl. Enrique, delighted with the idea, already advanced then that they were satisfied with the couple: “A girl, you know, what more can you ask for? But now we have our family. We have the four of them and our two dogs and it’s great” . Meghan also stated that with two she was fine.
