While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex resigned from their positions, they still maintain their duke and duchess titles, and according to royal tradition, their children can be given titles as well. When Archie was born, he was offered the aristocratic title of Earl of Dumbarton, which the couple kindly turned down, opting to call him Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor instead. While newborn Lilibet hasn't been given a title yet, we noted she will likely be offered the title of Lady.
But, when Prince Charles eventually ascends to the throne, he talks of 'slimming down' the royal family, which leads many to turn their eyes to the Sussexes. However, fear not, because royal expert Robert Lacey doesn't think the future king will do anything drastic.
“I don't think he will make the unpopular and hostile move of removing the royal status of his grandchildren,” Lacey told People.
