Royal reporter Rebecca English recently confirmed that Archie will not have a title. “I’ve had it confirmed Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor will have no title. He will simply be Master Archie,” she tweeted.
Archie became the 7th in line to the British throne the instant he was born, but he won’t be called “his royal highness,” as the rules around the granting of royal titles were tightened up about 100 years ago.
Congrats to the happy couple!
