Prince Harry and Meghan need to be “very careful” over their children’s titles, royal author Tom Quinn has warned.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex publicly used their daughter’s title in a statement this week after Lilibet’s christening on Friday, March 3.
The announcement has sparked a major change for the royal family as Buckingham Palace updated their website to include their new titles.
However, Tom claims that Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet’s royal status may be a ‘burden’ on them as they grow older.

Harry and Meghan’s children’s titles
Harry and Meghan publicly used their daughter’s title when they announced that she had been christened on Friday.
Archie and Lilibet were previously referred to as Master and Miss by Buckingham Palace.
However, their status changed when the Queen passed away and their grandfather King Charles became King.
Speaking with People, a spokesperson for the Sussexes used Lilibet’s royal title Princess Lilibet Diana when they confirmed that she had been christened.
They said: “I can confirm that Princess Lilibet Diana was christened on Friday, March 3. By the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rev John Taylor.”
Harry and Meghan also confirmed that their children’s titles were their birthright.
The spokesperson 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.”
However, Archie and Lilibet’s new titles may not be as glamorous as they seem.
I think that, unless Meghan and Harry are very careful and very lucky, will be a burden eventually.
Speaking with Express, royal author Tom Quinn revealed that the young royals may see their titles as a ‘burden’ when they grow older.
The author of Gilded Youth explained that Archie and Lilibet could become ‘royal celebrities’ as their royal connection continues to ‘dazzle’ America.
Tom said: “I think Archie and Lilibet will benefit enormously from their royal connection. Which we know always dazzles people in America. The Royal Family is always a permanent interest to America.
“But I think they will be seen as royal celebrities. And I say that meaning that they will be almost a branch of the celebrities from film and theatre in America.”

Royal author warns the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to ‘be ‘very careful’
But the author warned Harry and Meghan to be ‘very careful’ as he claimed that fame may be ‘very difficult’ for the pair.
This is because Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet will only be celebrities by birth.
He continued: “And so, I think it will be very difficult for them. Because they may suffer from a growing sense that they are only celebrities because of birth, not because of talent. I think that, unless Meghan and Harry are very careful and very lucky, will be a burden eventually.”
