Meghan and Harry rejected Archies Earl of Dumbarton title as it contains dumb

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry did not want their son Archie to be given the Earl of Dumbarton title because it contains the word 'dumb' and they had concerns he would get bullied, it has been reported.

It is said that the couple were worried it would attract unfortunate nicknames for their eldest child Archie, who is now two years old, according to The Telegraph.

The report adds that Prince Charles has also told the Duke and Duchess of Sussex that Archie will "never become a prince because he wants a slimmed-down monarchy when he becomes king."

A source said: "They didn’t like the idea of Archie being called the Earl of Dumbarton because it began with the word 'dumb' [and] they were worried about how that might look."

Another insider added: "It wasn’t just Meghan who pointed out the potential pitfalls, it also bothered Harry."

In a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year, Meghan suggested the institution of the monarchy didn’t want her and Harry’s child to have a title.

Meghan said she would have wanted her son to have a title, because that would have afforded him a security team.

In Harry and Meghan's controversial interview, US TV host, Oprah asks: "How did they explain to you that your son, the great-grandson of the Queen, wasn't going to be a prince.

"You certainly must have had some conversations with Harry about it and have your own suspicions as to why they didn't want to make Archie a prince. Why do you think that is?"

To which Meghan replies: "I can give you an honest answer." She added that "they" didn't want their then-unborn child to be granted a Prince or Princess title, as it would differ from the royal protocol."

The Duchess of Sussex claimed: "They were saying they didn't want him to be a prince or princess, which would be different from protocol, and that he wasn't going to receive security.

"This went on for the last few months of our pregnancy where I was going, hold on for a second."

She explained further: "They said [he's not going to get security], because he's not going to be a Prince.

"Okay, well, he needs to be safe so we're not saying don't make him a Prince or Princess, but if you're saying the title is what's going to affect that protection, we haven't created this monster machine around us in terms of clickbait and tabloid fodder you've allowed that to happen which means our son needs to be safe."

It was widely reported at the time of his birth that Prince Harry and Meghan were keen on the move so their eldest son could lead a 'normal' life.

Daily Star has approached Meghan and Harry's Archewell representative for comment.
