The Duchess of Sussex revealed in her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey that there had been conversations with Prince Harry and a “family” member about their unborn son and what colour his skin would be with concerns expressed over “what that would mean or look like”. The worries were said to extend to not offering Prince Harry’s son a royal title, and effectively blocking him from becoming a Prince.

However this has later been debunked, as according to royal protocol Archie would only receive a title when his grandfather Charles took the throne. When the King was coronated in 2023 this then opened up a future as a Prince for Meghan and Harry’s eldest child.
