According to a new report, Prince Harry’s son Archie has no chance of becoming a prince under the grandfather’s plan for a weakened monarchy.
A source said Prince Charles, who may become the next king of Britain, wants to limit the number of core royals to avoid bloating the monarchy – because he believes they won’t want to pay for a bloated monarchy.
As reported in the article, Charles told his son that he would change key documents so that Archie will not inherit the title that was once his birthright. As a result, Archie’s position in the line of succession currently places him in the seventh position.
“Harry and Meghan were told Archie would never be a Prince, even when Charles became King,” one of the sources reported.
Harry and Meghan Markle were not pleased with the news, even though they abandoned their royal duties to live in the United States.
Harry and Buckingham Palace are reported to be even more at odds following the royal snub.
Charles wanted only the heirs to the throne and their immediate families to receive titles and financial and police support from taxpayers.
Likewise, Charles and his younger brother are at odds over whether Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie should receive security in the future.
Following the birth of Harry’s daughter Lilibet Diana earlier this month, the royal family is nine, ten, and eleven in line of succession, respectively.
It has been a rough road for Meghan since she joined the royal family, but last year things worsened when she and Harry announced that they would step down as senior royal family members.
It sent shock waves throughout the royal community when the couple announced that they would split their time between the United Kingdom and North America.
Harry and Meghan revealed some shocking details to Oprah Winfrey in an exclusive interview, the first since they stepped away from royal duties last year.
Discussions about “how dark” their baby’s skin would be. Harry’s relationship with his father became so strained that Harry said his father “stopped taking my calls at one point.” The Duchess of Sussex also sadly admitted she “just didn’t want to live anymore.”
In the conversation, Harry and Meghan tried to address many of the tabloid stories circulating about them since they met; for example, a story about how Meghan made her sister-in-law, Catherine, cry.
Although they spoke harshly of their experience in the press, they expressed the most profound concern regarding how the royal family treated them.
According to Harry, he had a “really good relationship” with the Queen, but said his father disappointed him and that he loves his brother William “to bits,” but they’re on “different paths.”
