Meghan Markle may have been wrong about her son’s royal title during her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, her biographer said.
Omid Scobie, the co-author of “Finding Freedom,” said that the Duchess of Sussex may have misinterpreted royal rules when she said that Archie was not made a prince due to a change in protocol and was being treated differently than his cousins, according to a recent report.
Unlike Prince William’s children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis — Archie, who turns two this month, does not have a royal title.
Markle claimed during the CBS interview that she wanted him to have a title for the security that came with it. “All the grandeur around this stuff is not really important to me,” she said during the interview.
“If we are only going by what Meghan said to Oprah and what the palace have said so far about the situation with Archie, perhaps one can assume that Meghan was wrong in her interpretation of it,” said Scobie, whose comments are included in Discovery’s new documentary “Harry and Meghan: Recollections May Vary.”
“But we also know that there is much more to this story that we don’t know about,” he continued.
According to rules established in 1917, HRH titles are only granted to children and grandchildren of the monarch and the eldest grandson of the Prince of Wales.
