It can be a little confusing when you are talking about titles in the royal family. All of them are known as Earl`s or Countesses, Dukes or Duchesses, and Princesses or Princes. Some of them have more than one title before their name. For example, Prince William is a Prince of Wales, but he is also a Baron Carrickfergus, Earl of Strathearn, and Duke of Cambridge.
Even his children are known as Prince Louis of Cambridge, Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, and Prince George of Cambridge. Luckily for the friends and family, all of them like to be called by a nickname or just their name. We cannot but wonder, which title will belong to the baby of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Revoe Park, a recently revamped community garden and park that has been transformed thanks to involvement from CECD Blackpool’s ‘A Better Start’. Revoe Park had previously been a known location for drug use, in an area of significant deprivation, yet is now a great example of how a long-term community led initiative can transform lives and provide new opportunities. It is now helping young children experience gardening and the outdoors, as well as providing space and activities that allow parents, particularly men, to talk about mental health. #RoyalVisitBlackpool ?PA/Kensington Palace
The Rules About Royal Titles
Not everyone in the Royal family has a title. In fact, Prince Charles sister, Princess Ana, didn`t give any kind of titles to her children. They have their full, simple names, Zara Tindall and Peter Philips. According to some information, Prince Louis and his sister Princess Charlotte were not supposed to have any kind of titles before their name.
In Royal Family, there is a rule that was made by King George V in 1917. Only those who are in a direct line of inheriting the throne can have the titles. Other family members and children should be referred to only as Lady or Lord. Today`s Queen, Elizabeth the second, broke this rule several times for her grandchildren and other family members. Will she do that again in the case of future baby Sussex?
Will Prince Harry and Meghan Want a Title for Their Child?
On the example of children of Princess Anne, we have seen that there is no rule about Queen Elizabeth`s great-grandchildren have a title. So, you can see, that all of this is the choice of her majesty, the Queen. With Prince Harry and Megan being the most modern pair in the family, they will probably not even want their child to have a title. Plus, their child is very far from inheriting the crown, so there is no need at all.
Other Rules of the Royals
Probably, the public doesn`t even know that the royal rule was broken especially for Princess Charlotte. Before that, it was done only for male children of the family because the females would lose their place in the line of inheriting the throne. Princess Charlotte is the first royal family who didn`t lose her place after her little brother Louis was born. Looks like the family is stepping in with some modern ways.
Are the Children Royal if They Don`t Have a Tittle?
Some part of the public is asking themselves if someone in the family doesn`t have the title, does that mean that he or she is not a royalty? No, that is not the case. Princess Anne`s children Peter and Zara don`t have any titles, but they are in the line for a throne. Most likely, the same case will be with the child of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
When it comes to the baby Sussex chance of inheriting the throne, it is possible, but the chances are very slim. Their child will be seventh in the line, with all of Prince William`s children in front of them. That doesn`t mean that the whole family is not excited about the baby Sussex`s arrival into the family. They simply cannot wait for to happen.
