Even though Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s baby boy, Archie, is so adorable, you’re probably wondering if he’s considered a prince like cousins Prince George, 5, and Prince Louis, 1. Well, you may be sad to hear that little baby Archie is not a prince!
“As we expected, Harry and Meghan [have] forgone a courtesy title for their child. All part of giving him as normal a life as possible,” royal commentator Omid Scobie explained in a tweet on Wednesday, May 8. But what exactly constitutes a normal life?
Harry, 34, and Meghan’s child is seventh in line to the throne and, according to royal tradition, he should be called a prince. But since a source recently told Us Weekly that Harry and Meghan, 37, want “to live their lives quietly,” the royal couple have been doing everything that they can to not put a lot of pressure on their baby.
Their recent move to Frogmore Cottage should help them keep Archie out of the public eye, too. “The cottage is much more private, and they wanted that for the arrival of the baby,” a source told Us Weekly before Meghan gave birth on Monday, May 6. “Harry and Meghan are very happy with how the cottage turned out. They are looking forward to really starting their lives together on their own.”
It’s no wonder why the royal couple wanted to move out of Kensington Palace. Frogmore Cottage has everything they’ve ever wanted and more! Not only is their new residence just about 20 miles from their old home, but Archie has tons of space to run around and play with Kate Middleton‘s children. “At Frogmore, they’ll have more freedom,” a royals insider once said.
Baby Archie will love what his parents have in store for him!
