There is “increasing tension” between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and King Charles over whether their children will receive royal titles, a royal expert has claimed.
According to Roya Nikkhah, the Times’ royal editor, Charles “hasn’t decided yet” how Harry and Meghan’s children will be addressed.

As the siblings are now grandsons of the monarch, they were expected to receive prince and princess titles.
But after Harry and Meghan retired from royal life in favor of a mansion in Montecito, California, and a bombastic Oprah interview, the situation still seems up in the air.
“It is understood that Harry and Meghan fear the King may strip Archie and Lilibet of their titles after he refused to immediately recognize their elevated status following the Queen’s death,” Nikkhah wrote.
Royal author Katie Nicholl has also weighed her thoughts, suggesting the king is indeed ready to call Archie and Lilibit prince and princess – but with a caveat.
“One of the interesting things that came out of all this was the speculation about titles and Archie and Lilibet … whether they would be officially recognized as prince and princess, the titles that were owed them when Charles became king,” Nicholls explained in The Royal Beat by True Royalty TV.
“They currently remain ‘Miss’ and ‘Master’ and I’m told that is a very clear signal from the King.
“He’s ready to award those titles, but it comes with a caveat and that caveat is trust.
“They need to know that they can trust the family.”
In the wake of Queen Elizabeth’s death, Harry is reportedly trying to tone down the tell-all bombshell memoir that was due to be released this year.
However, Harry reportedly worries that his current draft “might not go down too well.”
The memoir was reportedly due for release in November as part of a three-title A$66 million deal.
However, the last-minute changes are expected to push the release back to 2023.
“Harry threw a spanner in the works,” a source told Mail Online.
“Given the death of the Queen, her funeral and the accession of his father Charles, he is keen on refinements.
“There may be things in the book that might not look as good coming out so soon after these events.
“He wants the sections to be changed now. It’s by no means a complete rewrite. He really wants to change something.”
However, according to the source, it “might be too late” to make such changes.
Publisher Penguin Random House reportedly gave the prince little “leeway” and asked for a revision of the first draft, believing it was “too delicate”.
Members of the royal family were reportedly nervous about the contents of the Duke of Sussex’s book after he and his wife Meghan gave an explosive interview to Oprah Winfrey last year.
Prince Harry announced he was working on his memoir not long after the pair bombarded allegations of racism and a lack of mental health support within the so-called “company”.
In July 2021, Harry said the book will be “written not as the prince that I was, but as the man that I have become”.
“I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and by telling my story — the ups and downs, the mistakes, the lessons learned — I hope I can help to show.” that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think,” he said in a statement.
“I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I have learned throughout my life and look forward to people reading a first-hand account of my life that is accurate and absolutely truthful.”
The “very honest” part is the part that is reportedly worrying other royals.
