According to the current guidelines of the monarchy, great-grandchildren of the monarch are not lords or princesses, except for children of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales.

This is why Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s children- Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis– all carry the deed but Archie and Lilibet don’t. At least as of right now.

However, when Prince Charles ascends to the throne and becomes King, Harry and Meghan’s children will automatically be given the title of prince and princess, as they are children of a son of the king.

This rule was put into law by King George V( Queen Elizabeth‘s grandpa) after he issued a Letters Patent in 1917.
