Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not seek a royal title for their first child in the hope that he or she can lead a ‘relatively normal life’, a source has told The Sunday Times.
As the royal couple begin their official overseas tour, the source close to the royal couple said the word ‘normal’ is an important consideration for the soon to be parents.
Earlier this week the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who married in May, announced they were expecting the arrival of their first baby next year.
It is understood the couple are considering following in the footsteps of Princess Anne who famously turned down the offer to give her children royal roles in a break from tradition.
Both Zara Tindall, formerly Zara Phillips, and Peter Phillips do not carry a royal title, unlike their cousins Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.
