In Prince Harry and Meghan Markles world, royal titles are a big deal. And even though they have a high title, parents may
Baby Sussex royal title
In front of Meghan Markle's due date, there has been a great debate about Baby Sussex's royal title. According to royal family title rules, the royal-to-be does not qualify for prince or princess status. Per King George's 1
Having said that, Queen Elizabeth made an exception for Prince William and Kate Middleton's children – also, Her Majesty's grandchildren. But she could draw the line at Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Right now Prince William is in line with the throne, meaning that his three children are third, fourth, and fifth. Because of their high ranking, the Queen broke the royal title rule. But as seventh in line with the throne, she might not do the same for Baby Sussex. But when Prince Charles rises into the throne, he can change his grandchild's status.

Will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have Baby Sussex to have a royal title?
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have great plans for their first-born, many of whom fall outside the royal world in which they live. which is why they decided to move away from the family headquarters and into the country, where Baby Sussex will have greater freedom to grow up.
As part of their efforts, the two also plan to encourage their son or daughter to pursue a career outside the royal family, making a royal title a little unnecessary.
The Duke of Sussex has made his feelings about royalty. So it should not be surprising that he (and his wife) want something else for his firstborn. This means that even though Queen Elizabeth breaks the royal title rules for her newest grandparents, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may reject their offer and choose a first and last name instead.
They would not be the first royal couple to reject the royal status of their children. Princess Anne and her first husband Mark Phillips were selected by royal titles for their son, Peter and daughter, Zara. Peter and Zara Phillips could have grown up in the glitz and glam of royalty, but their lives are something normal (which is something Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want for their children). Siblings work both normal jobs – Peter has worked in corporate jobs and Zara is an Olympic rider – and (for the most part) lives away from the royal spotlight.
