Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave up the title for their son Archie, who recently turned 2 years old.

In 2019, the couple had a son, Archie, and a daughter named after Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana a year later. Last year, the Dukes of Sussex moved to the United States and renounced their royal powers. A few days ago, the royal expert Andrew Morton told about why the couple refused the title for their son.

The grandson of the Queen of Great Britain and his wife received ducal titles in England and the title of Earl and Countess of Dumbarton in Scotland, which comes from the name of the city of the same name. After the birth of Harry and Meghan’s first child, the question arose: what regalia will the couple’s children receive. The spouses were not interested in the title that was given to them in Scotland.

“Archie could have taken the title of Earl of Dumbarton. But Harry and Meghan refused this because they believed that the word “dumber” in the name “Dumbarton” would be used as a mockery when Archie goes to school. This shows the sensitivity of the couple to what is happening,” royal biographer Andrew Morton said.

According to him, the couple decided to protect their son from ridicule at an early age. They want their child to make a decision himself, when he grows up, whether to wear this title.
