However, royal expert Kinsey Schofield questioned Meghan and Harry’s motivations in desiring titles for their children, claiming the move was “monetary” in nature.
“I do think that this is money motivated. Harry talked about wanting a family and not an institution. So why is it so important to him that his son be a Prince? And, specifically with Lili, these are American children now. Lili was born here in the states, what is she the princess of?” the LA-based royal expert opined on GB News.
She added: “The Americans fought a war to not have to acknowledge royals. So I don’t really understand what the objective is unless it’s monetary.”
Asked about the Sussexes’ popularity in the US, the host of the To Di For Podcast said Prince William and Kate, Princess of Wales were more popular than the Duke and Duchess.
Technically, Lilibet and Archie became Prince and Princess when King Charles ascended to the throne after the death of their great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.
However, they have remained “miss” and “master” on the Buckingham Palace website since King Charles became monarch.
A spokesperson for Meghan and Harry publicly referred to Lilibet as a princess while announcing the news of her christening and the palace has now confirmed the website would be updated to reflect their titles.
Typically royal children are christened at one of the family’s residences, however, Meghan and Harry decided to have Lilibet baptised in a private ceremony at their $14.7 million Montecito home in California.
