The rule that Meghan Markle's son Archie will be entitled to be called a Prince was long abolished

Meghan Markle might have been wrong about her claims regarding  Buckingham Palace refusing to give Archie a royal title.

According to royal biographer Omid Scobie, the rule that Archie will be entitled to be called a Prince was long abolished. 

Hence, it can't be said with absoluter surety that Archie was intentionally being treated differently than his cousins.

"If we are only going by what Meghan said to Oprah and what the palace have said so far about the situation with Archie, perhaps one can assume that Meghan was wrong in her interpretation of it," Scobie said in an interview for the new documentary, Harry and Meghan: Recollections May Vary.

He added, "But we also know that there is much more this story that we don't know about."

During her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan said The Firm denied giving Archie the title of Prince.

"If it meant he was going to be safe, of course," she said of her desire for him to be a prince. "All the grandeur around this stuff is an attachment I don't have…the most important title I will ever have is mom."
