Harry and Meghan "have been left furious that Archie and Lilibet cannot take the title HRH," said a source of the couple's frustration. "That is the agreement — they can be prince and princess but not HRH because they are not working royals."

Given that the former Hollywood star and the father-of-two, who turned 38 years old on Thursday, September 15, stepped back from their royal duties and refrained from using their His Royal Highness and Her Royal Highness titles following their 2020 Megxit, it was unclear if titles for their offspring, Archie, 3, and 1-year-old Lilibet, would be put into place.

As Harry and Meghan continue to enjoy their lives away from The Firm in Montecito, Calif., they have complained that their lack of HRH status has left them vulnerable, given they no longer have adequate security. The couple has expressed similar concerns pertaining to their toddler children.

“Harry and Meghan were worried about the security issue and being prince and princess brings them the right to have certain levels of royal security,” one royal insider recently spilled. “There have been a lot of talks over the past week.”

“They have been insistent that Archie and Lilibet are prince and princess,” the source continued. "They have been relentless since the Queen died."

The lack of security has already proven to be a problem for the young family-of-four. Earlier this year, Harry got into a battle with the British government after they refused to provide his family security when they return to his homeland. Noting that he "inherited a security risk at birth," Harry offered in a statement upon his request for security that "the lack of police protection, comes too great a personal risk" for his family to return overseas.
