He holds the right to have his father's Earl of Dumbarton subsidiary title and become Lord Archie, The Earl of Dumbarton.

Under letters patent issued by King George V in 1917, Mountbatten-Windsor is entitled to become a prince upon the coronation of his grandfather King Charles.

In the interview, Oprah with Meghan and Harry, the Duchess said that she had been told that changes would be made to remove that entitlement.

She suggested that this was because her son is mixed-race – but the Kings's plans for a scaled-down royal family limited to the direct heirs and their children date back to the 1990s.

How old is Lilibet and when was she born?

Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on June 4, 2021 – meaning she has turned two years old in June 2023.

The second child to Prince Harry and Megan Markle was born at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California, on 4 June 2021 at 11:40.

Her birth along with her name were announced two days after.

She was named after her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, whose childhood nickname was Lilibet, and her grandmother Diana, Princess of Wales.

The little girl was first introduced to Her Majesty in June 2022.

Is Lilibet a princess?

Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor is the eleventh great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II and is seventh in the line of succession to the British throne and is the highest-ranked individual in the current line of succession to have been born overseas.

As a male-line great-grandchild, rather than a grandchild, of a monarch, she is not a princess.

But under the letters patent issued by King George V in November 1917, she would be entitled to become a princess upon the coronation of her grandfather King Charles.

Instead, daughters of dukes are entitled to the courtesy title Lady" before before their given name.

However, just like her older brother Archie, it is unlikely that Lilbet will use her title – at least whilst she is residing in the USA.
