The Duke of Edinburgh and the Sussex title will reportedly go to the Crown when Prince Edward passes away, according to a British media report.
Richard Eden, on his show Palace Confidential, suggested that the King could stop Prince Harry’s son Archie from inheriting the Duke of Sussex title. Eden speculated that the monarch might “have a trick up his sleeve” following Harry’s decision to give his children formal titles.
After the christening of their daughter Lilibet, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that their children would be known as Prince and Princess.
Eden said, “I have heard it said that part of the reason is that the King wants to stop Archie inheriting that title the Duke of Sussex. So this might be part of that, so he has now set that precedent.”
Eden also revealed that King Charles did not want to grant his brother the title of Duke of Edinburgh as part of his plan to reduce the size of the monarchy. However, he had to announce Edward’s title because Harry and Meghan had said their children would use the titles of Prince and Princess.
