Prince Harry and Meghan Markle turned down their son Archie’s title Earl of Dumbarton worrying their son could be bullied due to the word “dumb.”
Both of the Sussexes rejected the title as they are living in America and the word “dumb” is more often used by Americans.
A source said, “They didn’t like the idea of Archie being called the Earl of Dumbarton because it began with the word ‘dumb.’”
Another insider said, “It wasn’t just Meghan who pointed out the potential pitfalls, it also bothered Harry.”
The source also said that “the couple didn’t want any titles for their children.”
Meghan told Oprah that Archie was blocked from being a prince and the question of the skin color was raised by the Royal Family.
She said, “In those months when I was pregnant we have in tandem the conversation of, you won’t be given security, not going to be given a title and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”
