The Impact of Harry and Meghan’s Choices on Archie and Lilibet’s Lives

Even at a young age, Princess Lilibet and Prince Archie have already been thrust into the spotlight. With their parents, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, moving to the US and openly criticizing the royal family, there have been concerns about the potential negative impact on their children in the long run.

The decision by Harry and Meghan to relocate their family to the US has raised questions about whether it was the best choice for their children. According to a royal expert, Meghan Markle now worries that this decision may have a significant impact on their children’s lives, and they might blame her for it in the future.

Royal children have always captivated fans worldwide. These young princes and princesses hold a special place in the hearts of royal enthusiasts. From Prince George to Princess Charlotte, they have been in the media spotlight for years. Unfortunately, tragic events such as the passing of Princess Diana turned the spotlight even brighter on Princes William and Harry.

Not all royal children, however, receive the same amount of attention. Two of them have been kept away from the public eye due to their parents’ decisions. When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped away from their royal duties and relocated to the US, their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, were shielded from the public life they would have experienced if they had remained in the UK.

While Harry and Meghan seek a more private life, their numerous interviews and Harry’s book, Spare, have kept them in the spotlight. Their criticisms of the royal family have not only affected them but have also drawn attention to Archie and Lilibet.

Even though the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been strict about allowing photographs of their children, their appearance in the Netflix documentary series launched in December 2022 made headlines. However, this was not the only event that drew criticism towards Harry and Meghan regarding their children’s involvement in public life.

One significant event was the announcement that Archie and Lilibet had been granted royal titles in 2023, making them Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet. While Harry and Meghan argued that these titles were their children’s “birthright,” this decision received its fair share of criticism.

According to Angela Levin, a royal expert and author, this decision carries a burden for Lilibet. She argues that by giving their daughter a princess title, Harry and Meghan have tied her to the British Royal Family, the very institution they have been critical of for years. Levin raises concerns about the potential challenges Lilibet may face in her everyday life, including potential jealousy from her peers.

This view is shared by a majority of the public, as indicated by a YouGov poll published in March 2023. The poll shows that 51% of respondents believe Archie and Lilibet should not have royal titles.

As Harry and Meghan plan to visit the UK, reports suggest that Meghan is hesitant to bring their children, fearing for their safety. The couple has been invited by William and Kate to spend time with their UK cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. However, Meghan’s concerns may prevent this reunion from happening.

A royal expert claims that Meghan worries Archie and Lilibet may blame her for depriving them of the chance to be working royals. While it remains unknown what the future holds for the young Sussexes, it is clear that their parents’ choices will have an impact on their lives, whether in the public eye or not.

As time goes on, we will see whether Archie and Lilibet show an interest in royal life, which their parents have distanced themselves from. If they do, they will undoubtedly be welcomed by their cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
