Favorite grandchildren of Elizabeth II differ from other young people not only by belonging to the royal dynasty. Being born into a royal family comes with obligations, some of which are hard to explain. For example, according to the tradition of the Windsors, young men take the surname from the father’s title. So William and Harry went to school as the brothers of Wales, since their father, Charles , bore the title of Prince of Wales.

After the wedding, Prince William received the title of Duke of Cambridge, so his son, Prince George , as soon as he became a schoolboy, received the surname Cambridge. When Princess Charlotte and young Prince Louis grow up and go to school, they will also bear the surname Cambridge.

And since Prince Harry, after marrying Meghan Markle, received the title of Duke of Sussex, their future children will bear the surname Sussex.

According to media reports, the Dukes of Sussex are planning to become parents in the near future. Megan told her father about this in private conversations, and Thomas Markle told the tabloids about this, which not only disappointed his own daughter, but also angered the queen .

We hope that future great-grandchildren will harmonize the difficult relationship between Harry’s crowned grandmother and Meghan.
