Archie and Lilibet receive Prince and Princess titles

Buckingham Palace has updated its website following Archie and Lilibet’s titles announcement.

After Harry and Meghan stepped down as working royals in 2020, Archie and Lilibet were not given HRH titles.

However, they received their Prince and Princess titles when their grandfather King Charles became King after the Queen sadly passed away in September 2022.

Yesterday, the Sussexes then confirmed that they had publicly used the title of Princess for their 21-month-old daughter Lilibet.

The royal couple called their daughter Princess Lilibet Diana in a statement announcing that she had been christened.

Lilibet was christened in an ‘intimate’ ceremony in California on March 3.

And although the invitation was reportedly extended to King Charles, Camilla and the Prince and Princess of Wales, none of them were present at the ceremony.

A spokesperson for the couple told People: “I can confirm that Princess Lilibet Diana was christened on Friday, March 3. By Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rve John Taylor.”

Harry and Meghan also confirmed that the titles were their children’s ‘birthright’.

A spokesperson for the Sussexes revealed: “The children’s titles have been a birthright since their grandfather became Monarch. This matter has been settled for some time in alignment with Buckingham Palace.”
