When it comes to the royal family in the United Kingdom, any new addition is a big deal for people around the world. When someone marries into the family, there tends to be millions of people tuning in, and sometimes it gets into the billions. Outside of sports, only a handful of events have had at least one billion people watching on television. One of these events was the wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, so it only makes sense that people were so interested when the couple announced that they were having a child.

Markle made headlines because she isn’t from the United Kingdom like many that have married into the family. Markle hails from Los Angeles, California, growing up near Hollywood. After she went to Northwestern University outside of Chicago, Illinois, Markle moved back to Los Angeles with a theater degree in hand where she started her career.

At first, Markle was an actress that also did some freelance work in calligraphy. Some of Markle’s more memorable roles included the films “Get Him to the Greek” and “Horrible Bosses”, as well as the TV shows “The League” and “Suits”. The latter show saw Markle sign on in 2011, the same year that she married director Trevor Engelson, whom she worked with on “Remember Me”.

The marriage didn’t last for long, though, as Markle and Engelson parted ways in 2013. She remained on the show “Suits” as Rachel Zane, and added films like “Anti-Social” and “Random Encounters”. Markle then began a relationship with Cory Vitiello, a chef that has been featured on television many times. After the two split up in May 2016 following over a year of being together, Markle’s life changed forever as she met royalty the next month.

Prince Harry is the song of Charles, Prince of Wales and the late Princess Diana. Like many in the royal family, Harry had a very public upbringing. In 2005, he famously joined the British Army, and at one point was considered to act quite against the standards of the family. Harry settled down with age, though, and he began a relationship in 2012 with model Cressida Bonas. The two split up after nearly two years, and it would be another two years before he met Markle.

Markle and Prince Harry had a mutual friend, and were set up on a date in the summer of 2016. Their relationship had been private at first, but after a few months, they went public and everyone seemed to want to know more about Markle. In late 2017, the couple announced that they were engaged, with the wedding being the event of the year on May 19, 2018 as over a billion people watched. Naturally, people started to wonder when they’d have a child.

In the second half of 2018, it was announced that Markle and Prince Harry were expecting their first child together. On May 6, 2019, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor was born. Immediately after his birth, Archie found himself quite high up on the list of succession to the throne in Great Britain. It’s a seat that’s been held by his great grandmother for many years now. Currently, Archie’s grandfather Charles is next in the line of succession, with his uncle Prince William and his children ahead of the family. Prince Harry, serving as the Duke of Sussex, sits sixth on the line of succession with Archie now at seventh.

With his British royalty and his mother being from the United States, Archie has citizenship in each country. He doesn’t have an official title just yet, as he’s not considered to be a prince. Harry and Markle are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, so their children wouldn’t have a title until moving up the succession line. Still, Archie is referred to as Master Archie, so the feeling of royalty is still there. Not many people know the royal family’s last name off the top of their head, so Archie’s full name of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor gave a glimpse to the family surname.

So how could Archie earn himself the title of being a prince? It’s unfortunate to say, but it won’t happen until his great grandmother passes away. When that day comes, Archie will become a prince via being the direct grandson of Prince Charles. His parents have titles, but Archie has none, and that was a choice that both Markle and Prince Harry made. “He may not have taken the courtesy title of Earl of Dumbarton, but he is seventh in line to the throne and when Charles becomes King, as things stand now, he will be granted HRH status,” Richard Fitzwilliams said. “Archie is not, as Harry apparently likes to think, simply a private citizen.” HRH, for those unfamiliar, is the abbreviation for His Royal Highness.

Though his father grew up in royalty, Markle didn’t have much while coming up. One royal commentator, Omid Scobie, said that Archie won’t live the typical privileged life of a royal. “He doesn’t have the title, he really doesn’t have the same bump-up that maybe perhaps the Cambridge children do,” Scobie said. “He will have to go out and earn his place in society and education is very much part of that. Regardless of your grades, you do need to be well-read, articulate, you need to have knowledge of the world, and that means being out there in the real world and learning.”
