Re: Child passports for Sussex children?
The 2013 Act of Succession has no bearing on titles. The current rules regarding the royal family are dictated by a Letters Patent from 1917.
No, you're right for the wrong reason - it was the wife that brought all of that up in her notorious Oprah tirade. He couldn't get a word in edge-wise! Also - ACT OF SUCCESSION indicates only "Master/Miss" for those children. https://www.royal.uk/succession
Their scheming availed them naught.
He did not "conveniently claim a prinll cely title for his children."
In the first place, it was a valid question about existing citizenship status, and I stand by it; in the second place, there was certainly no so-called "bashing", and in the third place yes please do "think".
One would think, at the loss of a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, that the bashing of these descendants would be accorded, at the least, a pause in such bashing
until after the late Queen's funeral.
A question in light of the fact that the two Sussex offspring are now scheduled to travel from the U.S. to the UK: since the UK does in fact issue "Child Passports", but the U.S. does *not*, does it not also mean that: (a) When Lilli M-B was born in California, her father would have had to have registered her birth at the nearest British consulate as a "child born abroad of a UK subject"? Which in turn allows her to travel solo now with her grandmother into the UK? And then (b) One wonders how these two children have traveled on previous travel outside of the U.S., since in fact they also qualify for American citizenship? So, were they previously on Markle's passport until now, or did they always have British "child passports" of their own? All very murky, but very convenient when you want to claim a princely title for your children isn't it?
