While they may be cousins all in line to the same throne, it’s predicted that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's children will face a very different upbringing to that of Kate Middleton and Prince William’s three children.

Since leaving their positions as senior members of the royal family, Meghan and Harry have chosen to raise their family in the US where they are expected to now live permanently.

Lilibet will be granted instant American citizenship under the Fourteenth Amendment as she was born on American soil in California.

Although their immigration status has not been made public, it’s believed that two-year-old Archie will gain dual citizenship to live freely in either the UK or US.

While Kate and William split their time between royal residences of Kensington Palace and their country home in Norfolk, Anmer Hall.

As they are not official members of the royal family, Archie and Lilibet are expected to engage in fewer royal engagements than George, Charlotte and Louis who are closer heirs to the throne.

Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor will be eighth in line to the throne while the first seven places remain unchanged – the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Harry, and Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

Royal commentator Victoria Murphy said: “There’s no chance that this baby will ever be King or Queen. This baby has so much more freedom than William and Kate’s children do.”

She said they “will not be expected when they get older to carry out full-time royal duties”, and this will give Lilibet the chance to “carve her own path”.

This means that she will likely have to work for a living in the same way that Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie have done.


The young royal also will not live in a Palace like her cousins and instead in her parents £11 million Montecito mansion, which features its own pool, theatre, arcade, guest house and even a chicken coop.

It’s believed that Meghan and Harry will privately educate the children at one of the nearby American schools that cost around £20,000 a year.

While George, Charlotte and Louis will most likely be educated at British public schools similar to their parents.

While George, Charlotte and Louis are regularly pictured in official photographs, it’s predicted we will see less of Lilibet and Archie.

As they have stepped back as senior members of the royal family, Meghan and Harry aren’t under any pressure or obligation to participate in photocalls like Kate and William’s family.

The public is yet to see a photo of Lilibet, who was born on Friday and announced to the world on Sunday.
