Also, it was the first time Harry and Markle had referred to their daughter in public as a princess until the official declaration. When their grandpa, King Charles III, ascended to the throne in the wake of Queen Elizabeth II’s death in September 2022, she and her 3-year-old brother Archie were given the regal titles of princess and prince. The coronation of Charles is scheduled for May 6 at Westminster Abbey. Although they have been invited, it is unknown whether Harry and Markle will show.
