Prince Charles is going to ensure that his two-year-old grandson Archie will never become a Prince, as he determined to limit the number of key Royals, believing Britains do not have to pay for a constantly expanding monarchy, The Daily Mail wrote.


"Harry and Meghan were told Archie would never be a prince, even when Charles became king," the source confirmed.

It is believed the decision was made after a number of accusations the couple has made to Charles and the Royal Family.

Charles will change key legal documents known as the Letters Patent so the grandchild of the sovereign won't get a title, who supposed to inherit the Earl of Dumbarton name, a source close to the couple said.

According to Charles's plan for Monarchy, only heirs to the throne and their immediate families will receive full titles, financial support from the public through the Sovereign Grant, and police protection funded by the taxpayer. 

Earlier this year, a source close to the Sussexes confirmed they did indeed expect Archie to be named a Prince when Charles acceded to the throne. 

The existing rules for Royal titles were established in Letters Patent in November 1917 by King George V, the Queen's grandfather, allowing the title of Prince and Princess to be given to the children of the sovereign, the children of the sovereign's sons, and the eldest living son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales meaning Prince George.

Prince William's daughter Charlotte and his younger son Louis received their titles not by right but as gifts of the Queen in 2013. 

Duke and Duchess of Sussex Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down from their roles as senior royals last year in the desire of having a normal family life.
