The Swedish royal family follows in the footsteps of Megan Markle and Prince Harry.
King Charles XVI Gustav and Queen Sylvia have deprived five grandchildren of their royal titles: Children of Princess Madeleine and Chris Ole Neal, as well as Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia no longer expect their royal duties to be fulfilled. ulcers, said the royal palace of the country on Monday.
Five grandchildren will be dismissed as "royal titles," but may still be "Prince or Princess," according to People. However, their children will not have high titles.
The decision to rid the children of their royal duties apparently became fashionable after Harry and Megan made the amazing choice of not giving baby Archie a royal title.
Insiders believe the decision comes from the desire of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for Archie to have more privacy as a private citizen. Prince Harry is suing two British tabloids for allegedly breaking his phone and stealing voicemail. And Markle is suing the Mail on Sunday and her parent company, Associated Newspapers, for allegedly illegally publishing an annoyed letter she wrote to her estranged father.

"Chris and I think it's good that our kids get more opportunities to form their own."
Her brother Prince Carl Philip also Instagram responded in support of the move.
"Today, the King has announced that our children are no longer occupying the position of Royal Highness. We consider this a positive one, since Alexander and Gabriel will have a freer choice in life."
Not all grandchildren have lost the title: children of the Crown Princess Victoria – 7-year-old Princess Estelle and 3-year-old Prince Oscar – will retain their roles in the royal house as Victoria is heir to the throne.
