On May 8, the world got its first glimpse of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's baby — and learned the little one's name. Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is royally cute, of course, but will he actually have a royal title? Short answer: Probably not.
A source told Entertainment Tonight, "While there are courtesy titles that their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could apply to their son, they have chosen not to give him one at this time."
Note: If the couple had decided that they wanted their son to carry an HRH title, they would have had to get special permission from the Queen. (And who knows? She could still be sore over that egg fiasco.)
However, a royal title for Archie is still not impossible. The source added that when Prince Charles takes the throne, Archie could automatically become a His Royal Highness or a prince, under the palace's current system.
But for now, we love that just "Archie" will do.
