British Royal Family News says that Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex’s children will not be using their HRH titles in the future and instead will be expected to work for a living. The couple have two children, Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, 16, and 12-year-old James, Viscount Severn. Here’s what you need to know.
Even though both children are close to their grandmother Queen Elizabeth and are often seen at royal events, Sophie recently said in an interview that they won’t be living a life as lavish or luxurious as their cousins Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice of even Prince George. She said: “We try to bring them up with the understanding they are very likely to have to work for a living. Hence we made the decision not to use HRH titles.”

According to the Daily Mail Plus, Sophie Wessex says that she doesn’t envision her children ever wanting or needing their HRH titles and instead will work for a living just like every other citizen in the UK, despite their royal connections. While it would be certainly much easier for them to dip their hands into granny Queen Elizabeth’s pot of gold, that won’t be happening anytime soon. Sophie said, “They have them and can decide to use them from 18, but I think it’s highly unlikely.”
And while her children have certainly lived a very privileged life so far, Sophie says that she and Prince Andrew have tried to raise their kids in a ‘normal’ environment or however normal things can be when you are living behind palace doors.
She added, “What’s normal? They go to a regular school [leading private schools]. They go to friends for sleepovers and parties. At weekends we do lots of dog walking and stay with friends.”
