The Royal Family has updated their official website, confirming the official title change of Archie and Lilibet. This change was first announced by the Sussexes on Wednesday when they released a statement confirming Lilibet’s christening.
While the children became prince and princess when King Charles acceded to the throne, the Buckingham Palace website continued to refer to them as “master” and “miss” for the past six months. The website’s line of succession list has now been updated to refer to the children as Prince Archie of Sussex and Princess Lilibet of Sussex.
The Sussexes’ spokesperson referred to Lilibet as a princess when announcing her christening, which led to the website update. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have allowed their children to decide for themselves in the future whether they want to use their titles.
The titles will be used in formal settings but not routinely by Harry and Meghan. The christening was an intimate affair with around 20-30 guests, including Tyler Perry, Lili’s godfather, and Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland.
